This is me, officially proclaiming that I am so ridiculously grateful to have a copy of the book The Wonder Weeks to continually remind me that babies go through crappy stages and phases...but that awesomeness is actually occurring inside them during these times.
You'd think I'd know this by now.
But when you're in the thick of it, it sucks and all you can think about is how much you would love to be sleeping. And all you care about is finding ways to prevent your brain turning to mush and coming out of your ears. Yeah gross I know, but that's how it feels.
The awesomeness that happened after this particular phase?
Bebecita can now crawl.
Specifically army crawl, but nonetheless she gets around. And FAST.
Cue the baby gates.
We have left behind yet another baby development phase that translated into crappy sleep, crankiness, fussy feeding, whining...all that goodstuff.
Bebecita finally slept well last night, after about a week and a half of awful sleep.
She still did wake up to eat once and then really early at around 5:30am, but then went back to sleep.
One thing I want to remember about last night...
When she woke up in the middle of the night, she just cooed and babbled
and I kept on sleeping through this.
Eventually she got a bit impatient and so she decided to do something about it.
I began to feel little hands patting my face...first ever so softly and then a little more impatient but still gentle.
Pat, pat, pat, pat...
OK, OK, I'm awake.
So, she nursed and all was well.
