Sleep like Mom

So, after seeing that Ellie has Steve's cowlick, hearing everyone talk about how they think she looks like her Dad, and fearing she has the Bennett temper, we have been looking for something that makes Ellie like me. What do you know? Like someone we know...

She can sleep anywhere...
Through any amount of noise - such as at a football game with screaming fans, right next to the cheerleaders, and ignoring the air horn that announces the end of each quarter.
And in strange positions. (still need to get pictures off my phone if I can figure out how...)

And motion puts her to sleep.
I also came into her room to check on her the other day to find this...
Ellie has been able to get up on her side since she was about a week old, but usually just when she was flailing around or grabbed something. Apparently now she has started deciding that sleeping on her side when she's in my lap is not enough and has taken matters into her own hands.

Speaking of hands, Ellie is starting to take a liking to hers when they find their way to her face.
Ok, so I know most of the sleeping stuff applies to any newborn, but don't wreck a new mom's dreams. Even Steve doesn't want to think about how much trouble we're in if she's just like him!

One thing is for sure, just like Mom AND Dad, this girl likes to sleep.


  1. I love the happy sleeping face in that last one! All the pics are so cute!!

  2. As she gets older, you'll probably find that she just looks like Ellie. Either way, she's beautiful, and we can't wait to meet her! Amanda is so excited to hold her.
