So excited!!!

Arabella slept for 7 hours last night!!!! That's right 7 hours...how awesome is that? I'm super excited...can you tell? Hoping and praying that she keeps up with this kind of sleep pattern at night!


Aren't they just the cutest? I'm completely in love with both of them!!! I just couldn't post something about Bella without showing a pic of her too!
Hopefully I'll get some more pics up of things I've been working on!

Here is hoping that one night stretches into many! I didn't feel like a real person after the birth of my son until I started getting more than a few hours of sleep at a time.

Hope you and your mom did well at your craft show.

I can remember the first time that our daughter (who is going to be 18 soon) slept through the night. We both ran in to check on her, to make sure she was alright. She was! We then did the happy dance, so I understand your excitement. Hope she keeps it up. Congrats! The picture of your husband and daughter is adorable!

That's awesome! My girls are 10 and 11, and you totally forget about "those days" when you're sleep deprived and thinking it will ALWAYS be that way! Hang in there mom! Yeah for that 7-hour victory though!!

Shame, shame, shame on me for not following up! Alana, she's BEAUTIFUL!!! WONDERMOUS!!! Awwwe, just look at how *happy* Daddy is, with his little girl! That is such a sweet pic!

Congratulations on Arabella, AND on the 7 hour straight sleep run. My daughter (now 18) slept through the night from birth--a miracle! Her little brother (now 12), however, was an entirely different story . . . I was lucky to get 2 straight hours at a time . . . he didn't sleep through the night until he was about 4 years old . . . I was lookin' pretty haggard during those early years . . . LOL!

Sending you celebratory and happy hugs and good wishes on your little bundle of JOY!!!

OMG! She looks just like her dad!! Good for you getting 7 hours of sleep! Did you pop awake and freak out at all??
I know I did that with all 3 the first time they pulled an all nighter! She did it once.........she'll do it again.
