Sleep no mo'

Hadley used to be a bomb-ass sleeper.

I feel that is the only way you can describe a baby who sleeps from 7pm - 7am. Yes. 12 freaking hours. It was glorious. And unreal.

Anyone with babies who came in contact with us immediately hated us. "Your baby sleeps 12 hours straight?! Are you shitting me?" was the usual response.

Not only did she sleep until 7am... but she would drink a bottle and then pass back out with me until 9am or later. Seriously, WHAT an angel.
The morning cuddles were always my favorite part of the day :)

Well, the time has finally come when Hadley sleeps no mo'. I knew it wouldn't last forever but a girl can dream! Ever since she started rolling over and sleeping on her belly she wakes up much more often. I think she's also become so much more aware of what's going on around her that she doesn't just pass out and stay out anymore. And then there's the times when she gets stuck against the crib walls. One time I found her with her arm stuck out between the bars and she couldn't figure out how to get it back in. It would probably be kind of funny if it wasn't 2am and she was screaming. Ahhhh, sweet parenthood.

Remember the part about me not being a morning person? I guess I don't really have a choice now! Her schedule is a bit all over the place these days but some mornings she's up at 4am. Luckily for me, she'll play and lay in bed until I'm ready to get moving (which can take hours). 

Her new favorite 8am activity...

Get that energy out girl! Mommy could use a nap.
