Back with Baby

As you know we are back from our Mexican vacation. Back to reality. We came back to a 2 month old little girl. Yes AL turned 2 months the day before we got home. Thanks to my awesome in-laws we have photo's.

AL 2 Months

Hope you enjoy the photo as much as I am enjoying her!

Also I am proud to say she is sleeping through the night! She has been doing this for about 4 weeks now and I couldn't be happier. I know many of us need our sleep but for me if I don't have sleep I become a BEAR. I know, I know, real mature right? It is just one of those things that I have never been able to fight.

This is my secret to getting the kids to sleep through the night so young. I would like to start by saying, sadly I do not breast, I tried, it did not work. So for you nursing mom's it will probably not be the 10 - 12 hour span I get. But any long stretch is nice right? Anyhow the secret is what I call reverse "napping". So although during feedings and a little after each feeding AL is awake, I also keep AL up for 2 - 2 hour periods. Sometimes I do not get the full 2 hours but 2 hours is my goal. I know this is not the only way but this is what has worked for us. What works for you? Did I mention Schedule, Schedule, Schedule? This is also a necessity.


  1. Wow- you left her with your in-laws? Nice. She is a cutie. I am glad you had a good trip.

  2. She is too adorable & I'm so happy for you that she is sleeping through the night!

    We all need our sleep...it's so important to our well being!
