Oh what a beautiful morning...

I went to bed around 11:00 by midnight she was up and no mild soothing was going to work. She wanted to eat. In the middle of that I heard Austin howling about something. Thinking this was going to be the beginning of a nightmarish evening I walk to our bedroom with baby attached, flip on the lights and make Joe go up and deal with Austin. He was trying to get into his bed which if you saw via twitter he found every stuffed animal we had and put it on his bed. So Joe dealt with that. I put Ashley back to bed and go back to sleep. I think I only woke up once and looked at our monitor, saw it tick and drifted back to sleep. Finally around 6:30 she started yelling for me, I go up and am greeted by a great big smile. We survived.


...Everything's going my way!

.... oh what a beautiful day!!! So very glad all SURVIVED the night with Ms. Ashley upstairs et al. Difficult transition, but wasn't going to be easier as time went on. Oh my - the princess is growing up but ever so beautifully.

She is getting too big!

Beautiful. I personally had much harder time with Leila going to the crib then she did. I kept going to check on her and was ready to bring her back to our bed any minute... but she was fine. And yes, that morning smile is priceless :-)

Thank you girls! I'm not tempting fate as I let her sleep in her swing this afternoon am I? Each night will get easier I know with a few snags along the way I'm sure. But the first cut is the deepest right?

Congratulations! She has a beautiful smile and I am impressed to hear how the night went! Sounds like things are going well!

I have fingers crossed for a smooth night tonight!

That first night is always the hardest. Sounds like she did well and so did you. Her smile is so precious! Such a cutie.

Thank Kiera & Renee

Last night was even better. She was out by 8:30 and didn't get up until 6:30 this morning. We did have one false alarm at 3:15 but that's okay.
