Look Who Slept Through the Night!

This precious little girl slept through the night for us! She slept from 12 to 7! I woke up at 6:30am to Jeff's alarm going off not knowing what to think. I didn't panic right away because I immediately heard her stirring and grunting in her pack n play. I laid there debating on whether I should pick her up to feed her or not. My "girls" were killing me for missing a middle of the night feeding!!!! Jeff and I laid in bed relishing in our victory and debating on what we should do next. Should I get her up to feed or should I pump? I was so uncomfortable. As we debated, we heard a few toots started coming from the pack n play. Oh my, our little girl is certainly not the little lady as she appears in that tutu picture!!! :) After a few good laughs at the expense of our daughter, I decided to pump. She woke up 15 minutes later. I couldn't have been more proud!! She got all sorts of hugs and kisses from us this morning.

In a maternity leave first, I finished with her feeding the same time Jeff finished up getting ready for work. We all walked downstairs together to start our day. Jill decided to do what any healthy baby girl would do and "hit the gym". I made myself a cup of coffee and hung out of the couch reading a few blogs and watched the snow fall in our backyard. Yes, it's snowing here in Cleveland again, imagine that. We are expecting 2-4 inches today. Jeff isn't even coming home for lunch because it has been snowing so hard today. It really is quite pretty but it's making for a lot of pent up cabin fever. My Target, grocery and Babies R Us shopping lists are growing by the day. This Mom needs to get back out again!!!!

The view from our front door this morning:

Enjoying my cup of coffee watching the snow fall:

Take care,


  1. Yay Jillian! Way to go!

    I was laughing so hard at your loving description of her based on her wonderful present of sleeping through the night - that's how I felt when Casco was a puppy! Hope it's the start of more sleep for you!

  2. And totally know that dogs and babies are not at all the same, but I do remember waking up a little happier when he hadn't woken me up.

  3. how did you do it? i would love to know

  4. Yay for Jillian!! That is Awesome she slept through the night and I just spewed out my drink when I read the word toot! I thought I was the only one in the world that used that word LOL....

    It is snowing here to and I have major cabin fever! I wish someone would turn that snow button OFF...

    Have a great day and those pics of Jillian in the below post are gorgeous....
    Summer :0)

  5. Lucky you! Jill slept more than sick Jackson last night. Maybe she can teach him a thing or two:) I hate the mornings that I wake up before Jackson too. It's always painful waiting for him to eat!

  6. Way to go Jill!!

  7. thats great that she slept through the whole night. I hope it continues on

  8. Way to go Jill! Isn't sleeping through the night a wonderful feeling?! :o)
