11 week growth spurt

Linnea has hit her 3 month growth spurt a little early, and has been nursing like mad for the last few days. At times, her desire to eat is overriding her desire for sleep, and so, for the first time in weeks, she has started falling asleep nursing again.

She has also started getting clingy, which means I may try to break out the Moby wrap again and see if she takes to it now. And for the first time, she has expressed a preference for me instead of Whit, screaming bloody murder when he tried to bounce her to sleep last night but falling asleep within a few minutes of my trying. I feel both apprehensive (how long is this going to last?) and bad for Whit (since this is the part of her care with which he's probably the most experienced).

However, Linnea is also moving her arms and legs a lot more vigorously, and can almost put her hands in her mouth. Small things. This will pass.
