This is becoming a habit: falling asleep with baby, waking up late to do things around the house. Husband crashed with us tonight too – our household was down for the count before 9 p.m.
I woke up at 11:30; stepped back in to nurse baby back to sleep; and just finished checking email. I still want to chop the onions for chana masala we’ll be having tomorrow (crock pots rock) so will probably do that and get most of the ingredients into the pot before heading back to bed.
I like getting in a chunk of sleep early in the evening. Sleep before midnight is supposed to be more restful than that after midnight. Plus, I’m usually not up for that long so sleeping early usually means sleeping longer. I’m lucky, I realize, that I generally don’t have problems falling asleep. I used to have quite a bit of insomnia in my teens and early 20s, but no longer. Sleep’s a funny thing.
Just heard another noise from baby in the bedroom. She’s so sweet when sleeping … little mouth still smacking a bit after nursing, hands softly playing with her hair as she falls back into sleep. My big growing still-little angel. Running between us today for kisses; running into us with kisses as our faces collide with her little smiling face. We’re so blessed with our girl.
Wishing you all a good night.
