4 months old

I started this post about a day in my life, but I got bored with it by 9AM. See my day usually starts between 2AM-4AM depending on when Jillian wants to eat, then it is a constant cycle she eats, she sleeps, I do X. X being clean house, eat, workout - whatever item I need to do until she needs me again. Add in getting Evie to the bus stop, picking her up, taking care of the dogs and well, lets just say not an exciting blog post.

Instead, now I have a 4 month old and a 6 year old. Jillian turned 4 months on the 2nd. She has successfully slept through the night 2x and that was a few nights ago. A good night is she will sleep from 9PM-4AM and then wake again around 6AM. I am waiting for her to slept through the night more, but until then I live on coffee and vitamin B-12.

As usual we try to take a monthly picture and it usually ends with me yelling at Evie (6 year old) to back off. At the end of the day the a photo of them together is priceless. Even if J looks like she is annoyed with big sis.
A fun comparison of the girls. Evie in purple and Jillian in pink, both 4 months old. Evie had a few pounds on Jillian, but you can tell they are sisters. It will be interesting to continue to watch them grow and see how much the look alike.

We are used to having a baby in the house and I can't imagine it any other way. Will their be more little ones.....nope! We are set, our little family.

How do you deal with sleepless nights?

  1. Seriously….I couple of nights ago I woke up at 2:15 and couldn't get back to sleep….I little thing called "midol" got me through the day…helped for my aches and the caffeine in it kept me going…who knew?

    I dropped last night at 9:30 and slept until the alarm went off at 5:20 this AM …needed that!
