This is my first attempt at blogging. I created this after hearing a family member say how much they loved reading blogs for their family that live far away. I love to read my sibling’s blogs so why not create my own?
I am very happy to announce that Beth slept through the night, a full 9 hours, for the first time last week! She was just 71/2 weeks old. Now, I know that this is not a permanent thing yet, but it gives me great hope for the near future. She now sleeps regularly 5 to 6 hours a night so I can't complain too loudly.
I swear that the kids have a pact to never allow me a nap during the day. Last week I had some bad nights and I was very much in need of a nap. Beth was asleep but Eric was giving me a hard time about going down. I finally said that Mommy was going to take a nap and I would see him later. After making sure that he would be safe I settled myself in bed. I then heard Eric come out of his room and close his door. He then proceeded to take the next 10 minutes and carefully sneak down the hall, across my floor and into bed with me. I was studiously ignoring him until he was next to me in bed and looked up at me, tucked his hands behind his head in a relaxed position and said with surprise, "Oh, hi mommy".I just love this little boy; he is such a joy and keeps me so busy that my head spins. Life is great.
