Guess who slept a whole night on her own in a bouncy chair...
Jeff and I were almost giddy when we put her down not 1 but 3 times and she stayed asleep. We're hoping this is not another fluke. Although, even laying in my own bed without a baby on my chest, I didn't sleep well. While Jeff dreams happily of cats and special children in our house, all of my dreams are like getting up to heat a bottle or checking on Lily to see that she's okay... which seem like they are all really happening. So, even when sleeping-- I feel like I am not sleeping. I feel like I've just come home from youth camp or a lock-in or something. My eyelids hurt and the thought of a nap fills me with glee... however, thinking of a nap is a futile effort.
My parents have taken a geriatric vacation to "Warshington". The first day my parents are gone -- Jeff gets sick, so I take the whole night with Lily. Day 2- Jeff needs to go to San Antonio for work and I notice Lily's eye is infected and have to take her to the doctor. Of all the times that I need my mom's help...
Things did get better though. Lily is growing up and becoming a little more even tempered every day. However, I am very glad my parents will be back tomorrow.
So... here is a formal apology to Team Motherboy. I should not have called you super annoying-- really, we were just jealous of your pop culture prowess. After such a comment, you seem like genuinely nice people and I am sorry for not cheering you on. Maybe this could explain why I have very few girlfriends. I'll try to keep the humor purely SELF deprecating from now on... you never know what people are google-ing.
