2+ years later....

This girl has been sleeping the same way all of her life.  I don't think it's going to change any time soon.

I think one of the many fun aspects of parenting a child is watching their personality grow from the very beginning. You have this infant who has little unique habits and you wonder. Is this just a part of being a newborn? Is this a deep rooted part of who they are? Will they grow out of this trait? I never thought I'd wonder about someone else's sleeping habits the way that I do. Luke's thing was loud noises. Now granted, he still freaks out over public toilets, terrified that they are going to be loud, but he doesn't run screaming for the hills any more when I vacuum or run the garbage disposal. Maybe Evan will grow out of the habit of sleeping with her arms up. But for now. I love it enough to make little hearts come out of my eyes. It's very symbolic of her personality- this girl is going to take up as much space as she can, make sure everyone knows she's present, never be one to tuck into a corner.

Finn is totally afraid of loud toilets too, whenever he pees anywhere but home he asks "is this toilet not going to be loud?"
