The small things 

This morning, I got an unexpected extra 2 hours of sleep (and baby snuggles) when Charlotte and I fell asleep together on the couch. I also got an uninterrupted shower AND a hot lunch AND I am wearing my pre-pregnancy running pants. 

This probably means that the evening is going to be hell, but boy did this mama need a morning / afternoon like this!

  1. Oh Charlotte! You make me want to get on a plane right this second and go squeeze you and hug you and kiss you. What a gorgeous little baby! And those days! They’re amazing aren’t they. Saturday, the boys slept (Noah in the bouncer which he hasn’t done since he was like 3 months old and he climbed into it himself, and Levi in my arms) for 2hours and 45minutes! It was GLORIOUS!!!

  2. Aww! She’s already growing like a little bean. I love the newborn stage. Treasure all your little naps together. It goes by way to fast.

  3. Gah! She’s such a doll! Take the good when it comes and don’t worry about what else is coming. Babies help us live in the moment!

    • It’s funny, her hair changes color depending on the light. Sometimes it looks so red and sometimes it’s totally brown. I can’t wait until she has more of it so we really know what color it’s going to be!

  4. You must feel great! Did Charlotte nurse or eat a lot yesterday? Gia was super chill today too after a day of marathon eating yesterday. It could be a growth spurt or maybe the cooler weather. Either way, good for you! It’s nice to feel a little more normal for a few hours.

    • I’m thinking growth spurt, too. She’s been inhaling food for a few days now. I can’t believe how fast she’s growing. My tiny baby is suddenly almost 10 pounds. It’s crazy! How are you and miss Gia doing?

      • Wow I must be really tired because I just commented again on this list as if I’d never seen it lol. Gia’s having a great day then a rough day and so on. Today was a rough day! But she’s Sooo sweet, nurses well (too well – still every hour, sometimes more than that) and is growing. Charlotte is so beautiful!

      • It’s no wonder you’re tired! Charlotte had a rough day today too. Even at her worst, she’s totally irresistible. These girls just have us wrapped around their tiny little fingers!

  5. She’s so beautiful! Sounds like you’re surviving and still in love 🙂 I’ve been falling back asleep in the mornings too. It’s delicious and I’m sure you need it! Does Charlotte take take soothie pacifier with the animal attached? Gia won’t do any pacifiers so I bought that hoping it would encourage her but so far, nothing. Anyway have a good rest of your week.
