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!!!!
