longest sleep stretch ever so far!

wow. last night little baby girl slept from 8pm to 4:10am! that's an over 8 hour stretch! i woke up a couple of times, anticipating her waking.. and at 3am.. had to go into her room to make sure she was still breathing :-). let's hope this becomes a trend... now - how to get you to sleep later.. waking up at 5:30/6am is too early for mommy... i'd love for you to sleep til at least 7am! you used to go 7:30 to 7:30.. but then again, you'd get up 10+ times between those times.. so i think i'll take the 5:30am right now.. ;-)

in LA for the day

jason and i flew down to la for the day... had dinner with tom and amy tonight to celebrate their engagement.. greece in october - yay! baby girl really is a good little baby... sleep is hard... but she's pretty mellow. she slept most of the plane ride... then during dinner (at a restaurant that doesn't even have high chairs or booster seats!) she held out so well.. eventually fell asleep in my arms she was so tired... oh, and today for the first time, she started sucking on the pacifier! kinda late to start a bad habit... but hey, if she wakes up multiple times at night, and keeps on biting me when she nurses.. then she's not hungry and just wants to suck... so i'm all for the pacifier! anyhoo... now i'm in the eensy weeny hotel room with baby in the crib in the bathroom while jason is out drinking with his bud..

First Night Out w/o Baby!

6 1/2 months after baby.. jason and i have our first date night... on valentine's day! i can count the number of times that baby has been with just daddy on my fingers.. but she's never, ever, ever been without the both of us at the same time! i was dubious. my parents came over, and jason and i had dinner reservations at the early bird hour of 5pm. not that we don't love our little munchkin, but what a nice night to be able to enjoy dinner by ourselves :-). of course, i wanted to call and check in.. but jason wouldn't let me. we left a bottle, and all sorts of different baby food. we got home around 7:30.. poor little munchkin was tired.. but doing just dandy in my mom's arms. nothing to worry about. and i thought she would be screaming for mommy.. ;-) the tears started when we got home though.. i think it was - 'where were you? why did it take you so long.. i'm tired and wanna go to bed!' now jason wants to do this every week! :-)
