My very first

Today is my VERY FIRST Mother's Day. The first of many to come. I've only been a mom for 3 months (although at 4am feedings it feels like forever) but I barely remember what it was like before him.....except for sleep. I remember sleep. I long for good uninterrupted SLEEP. But that is a thing of the past. I can't complain too much because my little guy is a good sleeper. 2 months he was sleeping 4-5 hours at a time and usually only woke up 1-2 times a night. By 2 1/2 months he was waking once a night and sleeping about 6-7 hours between feedings at night. I have a great husband who trades off night feedings with me so we each only have to get up every other night. And last night.....HE SLEPT ALL NIGHT. It's like he knew that was a great mommy's day gift. I put him to bed at 8 pm and he slept til 7:30am. I woke up at 6 and was alarmed he hadn't woken me up yet then I looked all dreamy at my husband, thinking he had gotten up last night with him. Then I realized the bottle was still sitting on the counter. Then I got concerned so I crept over to little mans room and there he was ASLEEP and snoring. How did I get so lucky!! 

This is him crashed out on the couch at 9am. I like to think he gets his laziness from ME! Lol
