My Social Baby

Let's blame it on hormones (thanks PCOS!) that I was being whiny about my sweet girl never sleeping.  Truly, it is mostly a blessing.  I love it that she's awake with us most of the time and gets to be part of everything we do.  And it's great for our busy lifestyle that she doesn't have a set schedule.  Like last night.  We went out for my best friend's 30th birthday and ate at a nice sushi restaurant where she napped through part of our meal and then woke up the second food hit the table to eat a bunch. (Just noodles and chicken- I didn't give her sashimi).

Afterwards, we played at a park with my best friend's two kiddos and then went to a really nice fondue place for chocolate.  She was still really good and stayed happy even though we didn't get home until almost 11.  Then she slept great and woke up happy this morning. 

So, it is really nice to not have a schedule to allow us flexibility in our social lives!  Aaron and I like to be out and about and it's funny to see how much Paisley already enjoys it.  We had already taken her to the zoo yesterday afternoon, so she was a busy girl.   But I was reminded of how incredibly good-natured she is and how lucky we are!  She rarely throws a fit, and it's easy to cheer her up from them when she does.  She loves seeing new places and people.  And she genuinely enjoys being out of the house.

Spoiler Alert: I know alot of people think I took the neurosurgery job a while back, but I actually didn't. I've still been working full-time at Aaron's clinic.  I took a job this week though, so I'll update on that tomorrow! 


  1. If mommy and baby are happy and she's getting enough sleep then it's all good!! =) I think it's great that she gets to experience all kinds of different things, too. Looking forward to hearing about the job!

  2. Oh my, we have the exact opposite in our house - we barely ever leave and when we do, it's planned around meal times, nap times, etc. I don't know if I created monsters by doing that or if they started out that way, though! I wish I could do more with them, but we tried last weekend to go do something and they just had a ROUGH day, crying ALL the time. I'd love to take them out to do stuff, but...not for now I guess:). So glad you can do that with Paisley!

    Can't wait to hear about the job!
