2 months 1 week and 4 days old. . .
And. . .
She's. . . I am pretty sure it's safe to say. . . She sleeps through the night!
My sweet little piggy. . . Oh how I love thee. . . And I also love my sleep.
For a while now, she's been sleeping from 9p-4a. Roughly. I was trying to get her to sleep till 5am so that I can get up and feed her and then have bfast before we have to get up at 5:45 to take hubby to work. Waking up at 4 and going back to sleep for an hour makes waking up at 5:45 much harder.
The other morning. . . She did just that. I had to wake her up at 5am. I have to wake her up before we take hubby to work, other wise she will scream bloody murder more then likely. We haven't tested it. . . But frankly, I don't want to. I greatly enjoyed our early morning mommy-daughter time. I fed her in our bed. . . Changed her diaper and then we came out to the living room where I had a muffin & juice and we watched the news until we heard [on the baby monitor, lol] daddies alarm go off. And as I figured -- He woke up wondering where we were. *giggles*
Last night. . . Last night she fell asleep on me somewhere between 9-9:30 (which is rare, I usually put her to bed when she starts fussing, but hubs and I were watching a movie and I wanted cuddles from my princess). Hubby had duty today but was getting a ride, so I didn't need to wake her up. . . However, I of course woke up at 5:15 when his alarm went off. He left around 5:45 and I tried for 15 minutes to get back to sleep. . . But my boobs. Oh man my boobs. They were *so* full. She ate at 8pm. . . It was now almost 6am. I felt like they were going to explode. I could not get comfortable no matter what I did. So I did something I didn't want to do. . . I woke her up to eat. ::sigh:: I have a pump. I have no idea why I didn't think to pump. I am really curious as to how long she would've slept had I not woke her up.
The good thing is we were both back to sleep by 6:45 and slept until 10:30.
This kiddo is just like her mommah. . . We love our sleep. And I'm very grateful for a great sleeper of a bebe!!
Tomorrow morning I am not waking her up to eat. . . If I wake up in a puddle of milk (leak through the breast pads, yup) and boobs ready to explode, I will get up and pump. We'll see how long she'll sleep till.
I love my princess.
She loves her tongue. Concentration people -- Concentration!
I can just kiss this little face to pieces all day. . . And I'm pretty sure I do. Good thing she's a lover girl!
She spends a lot of time on her tummy. . . Even though she has reflux, she loves being on her tummy. Most the time, that is. She loves her bumbo, too. She often sits there as I get ready for the day. . . And occasionally I can get her on her back on her play mat. I know she's only [almost] 2.5 months -- But I don't know what more to do with her. We talk. We sing. I play with her. But I still think she gets bored. She stays up for an hour-hour and a half max at a time. . . Before she starts fussing. And honestly, I'm not sure if it's because she's tired or bored. I assume tired -- So I put her down. This week, she's been going down in her swing. I get her arms swaddled, turn on the vibration, the sound and the swing & give her her paci -- And within 5-10 minutes she is out.
We broke down her bouncy seat -- She just wasn't using it any more. We have a small house, so it was taking up room. She has PLENTY of toys that I put around her when on tummy time -- Not that she's interested in them. We have a jumperoo. . . I've been dying to put it together but I think she's still too small. Our friend has her daughters set up still, and we're going over there today. . . So I'm going to put her in it and see how she does with it.
Does anybody have any other suggestions?
[[All these pictures were taken and edited by me yesterday. I was finally able to order a new battery charger for my DSLR battery (seriously, my old charger freaking grew legs & walked away) and got it the other day. It's been about a month without my DSLR & just my P&S. . . And OMG I missed it greatly!! Now if only I can part with it a bit longer to have the auto focus fixed, hah. . . Not happening any time soon.]]
