Okay, It Was a Fluke

As the title of this post suggests, Molly's sleeping through the night was, sigh, a fluke. Last night we kept her up until we went to bed again, but she woke up at 3:45, and then again at 6. It's okay, though! She is making progress, and we don't mind getting up with her. (She is, after all, a little baby.) She ate at 3:45 for a little while and then went back to sleep. She got up at 6 to eat again. I was so tired, though, that I convinced her to sleep a little more on my chest while Bill went for a run. (He is running five days a week now, and I am really proud of him!) We got to sleep until about 8 or so. Now it's only 9:30, and she is asleep again, lying on me while I am typing. She was fussing a lot while I was making my breakfast so I figured she was just hungry. When I tried to feed her, she ate a little, but kept crying. I cuddled her a little more, and she settled right down. I think she might have been cold. Regardless, she seems to be happy now.

The weather is certainly getting cooler, as fall-like as it gets in the Bay Area. Molly has been wearing pants with her onesies.

Well, my chubby little baby is waking up now so I suppose it is time to eat again!

Sorry to hear it was a fluke, alas, she is a baby, and she'll start sleeping throught the night. Still, only waking up once in the night is fantastic!!

Have you tried feeding her in the lying down position? You can almost sleep right through feeding her, and then if you're lucky, she falls asleep cuddling right up next to you and she may sleep a little longer than 6 am? I don't know if it would work for you, but it worked miracles for me and Ben (but there again, he was still waking every 2 hours at 10 months, so I was desparate to try ANYTHING to sleep just a few more minutes!)

She's so beautiful! Enjoy your fall-like day!

In the "How to be a baby handbook" it is written that it is mandatory to keep your parents guessing. So, Miss Molly Z is proving that she is a good learner like both of her parents. She studied the manual and is practicing what she learned. A chip off the old blocks I'd say.
Looking so forward to our visit next week.
Love you!
