Sleep = Everything

I haven't been posting lately because I've been too exhausted to take photos, upload photos, and/or write about the photos or anything else. Julia's night sleep has been steadily improving but it's been messing me all up, so ironically I've been sleeping worse this past week. But last night the nugget went 11 1/2 hours without needing to eat (!!!) and I managed to sleep for most of that time too. Whew. I heard her at 4:30 (when I was up pumping) making noise, but just a little bit and I didn't even go into her room - she worked it out on her own and fell back asleep until 7:00 this morning.

We're still working out a schedule, but the night sleep is starting to fall into place, so I'm hoping eating and naps will soon too. And of course, there's a 6-month growth spurt that could kick in any day now, so maybe I'm just pounding sand until that messes everything up. But for now, I'm going to take this good day and enjoy it. :)

I put her down with her head facing the opposite direction, on the bottom left of the crib in this photo. Under that blanket she's grabbing on to. And a few nights later she was actually sleeping on top of one of the ornaments from that mobile. Time to take the mobile down and get some baby crib straps to keep her in one place.

"I like Mommy and Daddy's bed the best!"


  1. Hanging out with her, it is clear she has no ulterior motives, but these pictures always look like she is up to no good.

  2. Gosh she is just so cute!!

    I love how she totally looks like she is getting away with something naughty in that last picture.
