By the time I get to her room which seems 10 miles away now, I am imagining the worst. What I find is a sleeping baby (on her belly) who has kicked off her socks, mittens (her hands get cold at night), and light blanket. Her pacifier is nowhere close to her. Yet, she's sleeping soundly.
So, I feel like the world's worst mother this morning. I slept 8 hours solid for the first time in 4 months, but my baby may have needed me. I checked her face for dried tears and her eyes for puffiness but found neither sign of prolonged crying. She smiled brightly at me this morning when I got her out of her crib like she didn't blame me for my mistake. And she ate like a champ when I got her up, possibly because she was starving.
And there is a chance she never cried at all. The last couple of weeks, she's been getting up once or twice a night but it's really only that she rolls around and makes some noise and I can't go back to sleep. So, I always just go on in there and feed her knowing that she'll sleep soundly if I do. Maybe she doesn't really need to eat or even have me come in there. Point is, I feel terrible and I'll be absolutely certain from here on that I can HEAR on the monitor!!!

|She loves her Jenny Jump Up already. She doesn't know how to bounce in it but she can turn around and it puts her on eye level with our dogs who she loves to watch.|
|This baby LOVES bathtime! We have started playing in there about 30 minutes at night and my tub has now been taken over by bath toys.|
|Wish this one wasn't blurry, but she was being SO cute!|
