Getting to know our readers' babies ....

Who: Delaney Rose, Celeste825's daughter, was born August 21, 2009. She weighed 8 lbs., 7 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long.

How long does she sleep at night? She sleeps about 11-12 hours at night. She usually wakes up around 7:30 ish and goes to bed at 8-8:30. And sadly, she only takes about three thirty minute napes during the day. She's my little cat napper.

What makes her smile? She loves being tickled and loves to jump! She usually lets out the sweetest giggle when our dog licks her hands (she usually has food on her hands LOL).

How did you choose her name? I have an ex co-worker whose daughter was named Delaney. It was her husband's grandmother's last name. I fell in love with the name myself. We then came up with Rose has her middle name because we are very close to my husband's best friend's family.  Rose is his best friend's mom, who was like a mother to him.

Any siblings? She has a 3-year-old (almost 4) sister, Hailey, and a 14-year-old half brother, Johnathon.

What's her latest milestone? Just last week she started crawling. Huge milestone for us -- we thought that would never come. And currently she is cutting tooth #7.

What's her fussiest time of day? Evening time! It usually starts around 6 until she goes to bed at 8. Not a lot of crying but lots of whining. But what can you expect from a baby that will only take 30 minute nap? LOL

What will she do for a career? Wow, hard question. But I can definitely tell you she's a very shy baby. So I couldn't see her doing anything outspoken but she could change and get more outgoing as time passes!
