Miracles do happen.

Starting last week my awake every 2-3 hour during the night baby turned into a awake every  45 min - 1 hour baby. I was hopeless, confused and very emotionally sleep deprived.
Thursday I saw her doctor for vaccines and when I told her of this, that I had yet to see my 6 week old baby sleep any longer than 2.5-3 hours at a time, she hugged me out of horror...and for the bags under my eyes.
EmmaJane must have heard us because that night at 3am I woke up convinced something was very wrong. Why? Because it had been 5 hours since I put her down...without a peep.

And as a result I had this to wake up to, this picture shows her double chin better than her smile, but you get the idea.

I understand this post was very first time mom boring of me...but it really was that amazing, I promise.

Blessin' the babe.

EmmaJane got blessed by her father on August 7th, 2011. It was bt far the best moment thus far in being her mother. When Robert took her from my arms and walked with her to the front of the chapel with a crowd of family and friends who we love, I was overcome with gratitude for the priesthood and these wonderful things Robert is able to do for our little miss. It was a very proud moment. Here are some pictures from the day!

Somebaby stayed awake for 5 hours and now will only sleep snuggled up to her momma.
I can't decide if I love or loathe this more.

Just decided, love.

Just wish I could function on no sleep.
