Wake Up, Baby!

A lot of moms beg their babies to go to sleep, but the opposite is true for me. Lily sleeps so much that, at times, I anxiously wait for her to wake up!

She takes marathon naps twice a day, sleeps all night, wakes to eat at 6, and then goes back to bed until 9. When she's awake, she eats and plays hard, and often needs a little catnap.

I'm not the only one that gets anxious. Lexie and Dylan pounce on her the moment they hear her, and occasionally try to wake her up!

Nothing is as cute as those wide eyes peeking at us when she first wakes up...

...or the little piggies sticking out from the bottom of her catnap blankie.

She's still at the stage where she needs a ton of sleep, so we take full advantage of her waking moments!

Because soon enough, she drifts back into dreamland.

  7. Just got caught up on lots and lots of your posts :) Your kiddos are as adorable as ever. Lilly is so beautiful. I don't think I would know what to do with an easy baby! How great for you all....she definitely made her appearance and fit perfectly into the family. And oh my, can't believe about the car hitting your garage. God was definitely watching out for you all. Keep up the great pictures of those cuties!

  9. I remember those days! I would be so sad sometimes because my work schedule and her nap schedule made for very little awake time together...

  13. What a sweetie! My little guy has been sleeping a lot too, sometimes with little break..just when I was starting to freak out a little, he had a few wakeful days. Hopefully they continue to be good sleepers for us! John sure wasn't!
