Last night...

Well last night started off normally...put the babe to sleep around 7:00 and then off to do laundry and make baby food...when I was doing laundry i forgot about the sleeping babe across the hall and slammed the dryer door...waking said sleeping babe. Then it was off and on until about 9:00. Then I finally got all the baby food made and cooled and put in the freezer and was going to bed around 11:00 (I know I'm super mom).

Well things went well until 3:00. Then all hell broke loss on Panterra Way. I went into her room changed her diaper and picked her up and rocked her. I put her down and then went and got back in bed. I suppose 30 minutes went by and I was awoken again to her screams. This is probably what makes me different because I was a little happy this time. I knew my plan of action. I went back in and tried the same thing...didn't work...I got even happier. So I put her down briefly and bloody murder screaming ensued and went to the guest bedroom and got rid of all of the pillows. We were going to have a sleepover. Now R-E-L-A-X this doesn't happen that often. In fact we haven't had a sleepover since she was 4 months old...it's a rare thing. I put that little crying babe on my chest and golden silence. She just needed a little one on one time. I mean the serious one on one time that can only occur at 3:30 or 4:00 in the morning. The kind where you feel like you are the only two people up...the best time. I just laid there and breathed in every single minute because I know these moments will soon come to an end not because I want them to but because she'll eventually get too big to lay on my stomach. I don't even want to think of how sad that will be...and I won't...I'll pull a Scarlett O'Hara and think of that tomorrow.

I mean how could you not love every single minute spent with this little babe...

The sleep lost taking in this beauty was quickly corrected by a venti (large) triple skinny cinnamon dolce latte...it was definitely time well spent!

It is funny how all you want early on is for them to sleep through the night, and then you start to miss those precious morning hours when it is just you and them. Such a sweet post... made me happy!
