6 hours in a row!

Posted by lena on May 27th, 2008 filed in baby news

The sweetest angel on the face of this earth just let mommy sleep 6 hours in a row without waking her up.  I think she was trying to make-up for the previous night.  When she started stirring around 6am, I was shocked.  I worried that she hadn’t eaten, been changed, burped…but she was just in the happiest mood.  Stretching and smiling.  It is not possible for me to be more in love.

Yesterday, we pretty much sat around the house and did a whole lot of nothing except feeding.  Ilya ate every hour at least.  Its wonderful that I have this time to devote to my baby.  In a way, its kinda relaxing.   She’s sleeping right now, which means that I have not one, but two hands to type with!!!  Our list of things to do is growing exponentially, but I think that we’ll get it done eventually.

    Way to go Ilya! That first month or so is really tiring, but I promise you that you will reach a point where things will feel settled. She will probably go through growth spurts where she will want to nurse all the time but just remember to take really good care of yourself (and that is taking good care of her) and enjoy the time because as you are probably seeing, that nursing relationship is so special and sweet. They grow fast though! Hey, if you ever have any questions or problems with BF, you can always give me a call or email.

    So, are you both finding yourselves watching her blissfully like she is a mini TV? Babies are just the best! Hope you continue to get some sleep though! Love V and the gang
