You're Getting Verrrry Sleepy!!!

Ms. Paisley slept through the night the past 2 nights!  Hoooooray!!!!!  One night she slept in her cradle next to the bed and then last night she slept with us, but whatever. I miss her if she's SO far away! She fell asleep at about 10:30 and woke up at 7:00 to eat.  SUPER EXCITING!!! 

I didn't do anything different, she just slept.  And I realize that people consider it through the night if they sleep 6 hours straight, but I didn't count that.  I wanted a full 8.  My breasts would've preferred a middle of the night feeding, but they don't get a say in this.  :)

Seeing her Great-Grandpa on Thanksgiving

Looking adorable in her turkey outfit!

Enjoying IHOP on the morning after Thanksgiving which is my annual tradition with my mom
My life with her just gets sweeter all the time as she's growing up and getting more interactive.  She's found her feet and loves to try to reach them.  A good friend gave me some socks that are brightly colored and have a rattle toy on the tips so she plays in those alot.  Her bouncer seat is still her best friend and she adores the yellow giraffe attached to her carseat handle.  Some days I think I'll paint myself a flourescent color just so she'll love me as much as her toys!

She's starting to drool like crazy which leads to all of her clothes being soaked...  and I'm praying it doesn't mean a tooth is headed our way because my breasts are SO not ready for that!!!


  1. She is SO cute! I especially love the tutu turkey outfit!! :) And big round of applause for SLEEP! :)

  2. Emma started drooling like crazy around 3 months and everyone told me she was about to teeth. She didn't get her first tooth til the day after her first birthday! One person did say excessive salivation is a sign they are preparing for rice/solid foods.

  3. She is sooo sweet and beautiful! Sofia is drooling like crazy too! We were worried about a tooth starting, but maybe it's just normal?

    Congrats on sleeping through the night!! Woo hoo! Sofia sleeps a ton, but it's never a sound, peaceful sleep unless we're right there. Good job you guys!!

  4. She is so cute. And you are very lucky. I am about to post about our week from h**l, but let's just say Jackson is NOT sleeping through the night at all. And he drools a lot, too, and it started right around 3 months...

  5. It seems so early for teeth...but I guess babies all get them at different times. Ehhh I can't imagine teeth on the teet!

  6. She's so adorable in her Thanksgiving outfit! Yay for two whole nights' sleep! :)

  7. Sleeping through the night! Oh, you give me hope for the future! I hope you enjoyed that 8 hour stretch!
