Oh the Quiet

Elliora Grace - Hospital Birth Photo
We've come a long way since I was born...

The house is blissfully quiet this Sunday morning.  I have a sweet, newborn lying beside me with her hand clutching my laptop power cord.  She already loves technology.  No husband or two year old in site.  A mug of hot coffee to my right and nothing stopping me from enjoying it, while I listen to a sermon online.

We're taking it easy today, after overdoing it yesterday morning. I know, you're shocked that I would over do it, right?  Well, I couldn't help it.  Yesterday marked one of the biggest events of the year at the Mission, of which I am the event director.  So, rather than be completely absent, I marched our little family down to the shelter at 9 am to witness the 3rd Annual Rescue Run. It was a smashing event!  But as always, I pushed a little too hard and hobbled my way out the door when it was over.  

So, I'm on orders to take it easy today (thanks husband!).  

On a side note...I feel a little foolish for forgetting how little sleep you get with a newborn. Elliora has had no problem reminding me.  Crying from ten til two?  I think I blocked those memories from my mind after Annelise started sleeping through the night - which was at ten weeks old.  Therefore, I have a new goal...are you listening Elliora?  You will be sleeping through the night before you reach your eighth week of life.  So help me...

Man, I don't even sleep all the way through the night. Good thing I'm not your sweet little daughter! : )

You are insane woman! I would never have been able to get out of the house to an event like that a week after my c section! Take it easy my friend!

Ug...Ana was sleeping through the night at 6 weeks old and now...she's back to waking up at 3/4/5...it's really hard to go backwards. I hope it comes soon for you!

I love that she has 'Luter eyes". At least for now. She may look like her GiGi Bartlett :)
She is so cute, and that fuzzy little sleeper. I miss those days a bit.

She is soooo cute! I stopped getting the hospital photos because my kids looked really homely in them.

Adam cried from midnight to 3am, for 12 weeks. It was awful, horrible, and I know how you feel.
