Sweet Dreams for Mommy!

Marisa slept through the night!! (Sleeping through the night for a baby her age is 5-6 hours. Not quite 8 hours, but still.) She slept from 11:15pm-5:15am, ate, then slept again from 5:30am-9:30am! It was HEAVENLY!! Especially since I have a cold. This is the second time she slept for 6 hours. Last time was during the beach house. Marisa usually sleeps 3-4 hour stretches in the night, so I can't complain there because she used to be every 2 hours around the clock, 24/7. But, come on now...6 hours is definetly a treat! Hopefully this is a start of something extremely exciting!
Speaking of exciting...Marisa's days are soo much better. She is on a predictable schedule now. Marisa will eat, take a nap about an hour to 1 1/2 hours later for about 45 minutes, and then after she wakes up, about half an hour later she is hungry and the whole cycle begins again. So she eats about every 2 1/2 - 3 hours during the day. Not only is the schedule exciting, but she doesn't fight me anymore during her naps. Everytime I put her down for a nap it was a battle. She would be so tired but for some wierd reason she would fight sleep! Now it takes me a couple of minutes to put her asleep. I love it!
Marisa is starting to leave the newborn stages behind and embracing the infant stages. Her eating and sleeping habits are changing, AND her body size is changing! We bought her 3-6 month new clothes yesterday! She doesn't fit into her 0-3 month clothes anymore which is unreal. I felt so wierd at the store because it felt like I should still be buying newborn clothes for her. My baby girl is growing up!

Way to go Marisa! We can't wait to see you on Sunday. I bet you've gotten bigger in just one week. We love you.

Van slept through the night for the first time last night also. He slept from 11:30 pm to 6 am. It was so nice. Hopefully he will keep doing that.
