People, we have turned a corner. Bella did fantastic last night. She slept from 8-midnight, woke up and just wanted to be soothed (which Husband took care of while I slept blissfully unaware in the next room) and then slept from 12-4:45 AM. After that she was only up one more time.
After getting all that sleep last night, I feel much more like myself today. It wasn't such a miserable struggle to clean the house or exercise. I know that this might not be repeated again tonight, but the fact that she was able to do so well last night at least tells me that she is capable of doing it again. She's moving in the direction of sleeping through the night and that is awesome.
Now here is the promised photo of Bella doing 'happy baby' pose.
And here she is in her bathrobe. How cute is a baby in a bathrobe!?
