Well-Rested

I am certain that as soon as I type this blog post and hit "Publish" things will change, but I just  wanted to brag on my girl.

None of my babies have slept in my room past 2 months. I just find that both baby and I sleep better when we're in different rooms. I will wake up to every little tiny sound they make and I don't really give them the opportunity to learn to put themselves back to sleep. I just works that much better to have them in another room... one where I can hear them if they really wake up and start crying, but not where I wake up at their slightest sound.

Unfortunately, in this house, such a room does not exist. The kids' bedrooms are on the completely opposite side of the house and upstairs. I am certain that Libby would wake up the girls before she ever woke me up. And having three children awake is not ideal.

So, Libby has been sleeping in our room in the Pack N Play. And as a testament to what an amazingly wonderful kid she is... having her in my room doesn't bother me one bit. Her little noises don't wake me up. And she RARELY wakes up in the night. She's in bed by 9pm and wakes up around 6am.  I feed her and she falls back to sleep until 8 or 9am.

She takes WONDERFUL naps too! 

I'm one very spoiled mama. And I can't recall a time that I felt as well-rested so soon after having a baby.
I love my Bibby.
Ain't she a doll?
(And yes, she's a tummy sleeper.)

Yay!!! That's exactly how both of mine were. I've never understood how so many moms kept having kids after having such non-sleepers. Crazy, I tell ya!

I'm so jealous! Especially since I was up with my five year old at 3 a.m. because her mosquito bites itched and then up with my 5 month old who wanted to nurse five times last night....coffee...where's the coffee? :)
