Aw Mom!!!

I know... I know... she will hate me for this later!

Oh look- strategically placed toy!


someone loves bathtime!

crazy bath hair!

Wow! Babies do sleep!

So, after nearly nine months, I am pleased to announce that Charlotte is FINALLY sleeping through the night.

It has been seven days since she last woke up in the middle of the night...

I'll admit that I never thought it would take this long. I also didn't realize how much my lack of sleep was really getting to me. You see, Charlotte would wake up 2-3 times a night. Couple that with an hour commute each way and a full work day and I was pretty much spent all the time. It wasn't uncommon for me to lose track of my thoughts mid-sentence, or feel my eyelids get heavy whenever I sat still too long. In fact, I'm pretty sure I was 85% caffeine. (Thank you Dunkin' Donuts.)

Sure, I still wake up in the middle of the night, my body being accustomed to a series of power naps, but at least now I don't have to drag myself out of my cozy retreat and rock a screaming baby back to sleep. I can just roll over and resume my peaceful slumber.

Of all the milestones Charlotte has reached, this definitely ranks up there among my favorites! But crawling was pretty cool too... And so was laughing... :)
