My Big Baby Girl

Last night was an amazing night. I put Lilah to bed at 8:30pm as usual, but I was completely shocked when I woke up at 4am and she was STILL snoozing. I of course had to check her to be sure she was okay, and she was, of course...but then I did something I never thought I'd do. I woke her up. I'm not a big fan of waking babies up in the middle of the night, but for the sake of my milk supply, I needed to feed her. I woke her up, nursed her and put her back into bed and she slept until 7am! What a GLORIOUS night. It was the first night since she's been born that I could stretch and roll over and sleep with no one snuggled up close to me. To be honest, I KINDA missed her. Not so much that I would RATHER have her in bed with me, but it is kinda sweet to wake up and look over and see her sweet little face. It really amazed me though because up until this point, the longest she's EVER slept was 4 hours. I wasn't expecting this...but we did have a bit of a tiring day, I suppose (shopping and a bit of driving).

Aaron now has 6 teeth--they're arriving in such a weird pattern. He has the top 2 and the bottom 2 of course, then that random molar...and now he's had the top, left tooth next to the middle ones pop through. He's also talking up a storm. Of course, no sentences or anything, but it seems like he says new words every day. He says "help", "baby", "more"--while signing "more", Lilah, of course, Abby, Mama, Dada, thank you and more I can't think of right now. Such a smart little guy!

She did it again last night, what a blessing!! It's so nice to wake up in the morning with her in her crib!! So much better on my back!

Yes, Aaron is awesome. I just love that little guy. He can also say, "knife" (his favorite dish to pull out of the dishwasher) and "shoe". He learns words almost as fast as he's getting teeth, it's so hard to keep track of it all! :)
