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.

Oh I am so glad you got some sleep!!!! No one can understand the craziness of forced sleep deprivation until they've been there! Don't be dumb like me and wake your baby up because you are freaked out that they are actually sleeping :)
