Confession of a Not-So-Tired New Mom

Liliana is 3 weeks old today! I seriously can't wrap my mind around the fact that 3 weeks have passed since she was born. Time needs to s-l-o-w down!

Lily is an angel baby! She likes to sleep...a lot.

She has her fussy moments...

...but it usually means that she wants to cuddle or go back to sleep.

We were blessed for the third time with a good sleeper. She kicked it off by sleeping for 4 hours straight on her first night out of the womb. We thought it was a fluke, but she repeated it the following night.

Since we came home from the hospital, she has been sleeping 5-6 hours at night before waking to eat, then goes back to bed until I wake up in the morning. She knows the moment I wake up, and joins me. She eats again, and then goes back to sleep for several hours.

She is more alert during her awake moments now, but my girl loves to sleep. This mama? Not tired. Somebody must have thought 35 weeks of daily morning sickness was enough, and decided to go easy on me!

I love my sweet baby girl!!!

Happy 3 weeks, Liliana!
