Ahhhhhh..... sleep.....

I love it. I miss it. I am jealous of my old self who occasionally took a 4 hour nap on the weekend to recharge. But I must admit that lately things on the sleep front have been decidedly good.
Ever since the Daylight Savings time change, Isa has been sleeping from 7-6:30 (or sometimes even 7!!!). Rarely a peep during the night and if she does wake up, all I have to do is re-tuck her in, whisper "Night-night" and head out. I've found that not closing the door entirely at that point works wonders.
Daytimes are also peachy-keen at the moment. Naps are rarely less than 2 hours and this week, they've been 2 1/2-3 hours. As I type this, she's 5 minutes away from 3 hours. The house is mostly clean, I've paid bills, read a magazine, and now I'm blogging. How wonderful is that? Yesterday I got a 2 hour nap in which might account for at least part of my extra-good mood today.

Oh, and I do realize that I am likely jinxing myself by writing all of this. Should I come back next week lamenting the loss of all sleep decorum, you can all tell me "I told you so."

And here's a bit of Isa B-liciousness. A few pics from last month, since I didn't get many up:
You can never have too many books (nor apparently too much hair)

Say "Cheese!"

The "Look" (aka, What You Talkin' 'Bout Mama?)

Oh I love this! First of all I LOVE that she is sleeping like a CHAMP. I am jealous of the uber-nap. Please ask Isa B to teach that one to Elsa at camp. :-)

And I'm so glad for you that you are getting some much-needed rest. It really is true that everything, EVERYTHING is easier when mama gets enough sleep!

Quinn's starting some stepping...pretty soon he'll be able to REALLY play with IsaB!

Those pictures are too much - so funny! Glad you had a good flight; I'll likely be asking for advice soon.
I have no idea if the stroller reclines. I didn't actually "assemble" it, so I'm not totally aware of its capabilities. Sometime when I have more than a half hour, I'll take a look at it. Fortunately, I was able to save the directions that SOMEONE had thrown into the recycle bin after he had been expressly directed to check the container for an instruction book....

So cute! She is such a doll and I love all that hair! Oh, and the look... aren't they SOOOO cute when they aren't directed at you?!

So happy you're finally catching some zzz's! There's nothing like sleep to give you a great mood and a happy outlook!
