Blessed Sleep

Look who slept in her own bed last night! She took a late afternoon nap yesterday and was still going strong at 7pm. Even after her bedtime bottle and jammies. So I let her hang out and play. At exactly 8pm her head dropped to the carpet and she zonked out. Since she was already asleep, I thought it'd be a good time to try transitioning her to the crib.
Of course, she woke up as soon as she hit the mattress. Then showed me her spicy side as I tried to get her back to sleep. Even though she was so exhausted her eyes were rolling back in her head, she fought hard... for 2 solid hours! My girl is almost as stubborn as her momma. In the end, momma won.
She was asleep by 10pm and didn't make a peep until 8:45am. I couldn't believe it. Momma even got to take a shower, put on make up and do her hair! I keep an eye on her at night through a video monitor but I still woke up at 4:30am shocked I hadn't heard from her. So I got up and checked her. She must've just really worn herself out arguing with me cuz she slept like a rock. She didn't hold it against me though and woke up her normal sunshiney self.
After a fresh diaper we headed downstairs for the morning bottle.
She sits in her high chair while I make it.
I think she's giving me a look like "why are you taking my picture and not making my breakfast, woman?!"
And in case I didn't get the message, she decided to tell me a little louder. LOL!
When her belly is full she likes to play.
Mia loves her seat. She gets bored laying on her back or belly all the time and likes to sit up and see the world. She still topples easily so for now she gets a little help. And yes... those chunky thighs are stuffed in like little sausages but she doesn't mind.
The many faces of my silly happy snotty nose girl.

OH lawdy she is seriously adorable. How on earth do you get anything done? I'd just sit around and snuggle and stare at her cuteness.

Finally, we get to see Mia herself in that crib that you so carefully designed and put together. At last, the room is complete! How sweet.

And what a smiling sweetie she is! I can tell you two gals are gonna have lots of fun together.
