Hannah 8 weeks

I can't believe how big my little girl has gotten already. She has outgrown so many of her clothes and is wearing some size 3 months clothes already. She has also outgrown size newborn and size 1 diapers and is wearing size 2. She is also starting to become more alert and looks around at her surroundings alot. She also smiles and focuses on things. Its just amazing how everyday she changes.
Last night I gave her a bath, which by the way she loves. She is so calm and loves to kick her legs in the water. Well after her bath she fell asleep and I put her in her pack n play at around 8pm. After an hour or so I went to lay down in bed and the next thing I know it was 2 am and I woke up startled thinking what the heck she didn't wake up? So I ran to check on her and she was still sound asleep. Over 6 hours!! A first for sure. I couldn't leave her in the pack n play anymore so I picked her up to put her in the crib and then she woke up which was ok by me because I knew she would be hungry. So we shall see if she sleeps for more then her normal 3-4 hours again tonight. If so we might have a good thing going and I might be able to get some more sound sleep.
Other than taking care of my little one I have just been putsing around the house doing nothing much. I thought that when I would be home for 12 weeks off of work I would get alot of sewing done and projects done around the house in between watching Hannah, well that hasn't happened. She takes up alot of time and when she finally naps I then have time to eat, get on the computer, do dishes, laundry etc, hardly time to start any sewing projects or stuff around the house. Oh and not to mention taking care of the dogs who drive me nuts all day. I'm sure things will change and I will eventually have time for other things. Right now I'm just enjoying being lazy and taking care of her. Oh and not to mention that I only have like 3 1/2 weeks left until I go back to work and then I have to leave her for more then 8 hours a day, which has never happened. I already have anxiety about that. But I have to go back to work so I have to figure out a way to deal with it.
Well enough rambling for now.

Awh, she is so darn cute! The first time they sleep through the night it always scares the heck out of you. I am so glad she is starting so early for you. Another good trick is to give her just 4 oz at a time all day and then a nice big 8oz bottle at 8 or 9pm and they can usually sleep 6-8 hours strait on that alone. How awesome you have 12 weeks home with her, I only got 4 weeks. By the way, you'll not have time to sew like before until after she starts school, if your lucky. :) I turn my machine off when summer starts and don't go back until fall, usually I am just to busy spending time together with my girls and keeping busy to miss it!

ohh I will have to try that bottle trick, I was thinking that she would sleep longer if she had more to eat.
And yeah I guess sewing will be on the back burner for a long time, but that's ok with me cause she is just too cute!
