I am a happily well rested mama as I write this! Oh my goodness I hope Luke is turning over a new leaf and is going to sleep as well as he did last night. Saturday he cried all evening and had me up pretty much every hour of the night. I started getting really anxious because I'm going back to work on Wednesday and I was thinking there's no way I can be up like this all night and function at work during the day. So, we'll see if he keeps it up. Yesterday was my cousin Amanda's bridal shower and he was such a good boy the whole day being passed around. We were teasing my cousin Katie at the shower calling her the "Baby Whisperer" because she's now a teacher but has always babysat and had a way with children. My Aunt said she can potty train a child in a day. So, she walked over to Luke and whispered "okay Luke, you have to be really good for your mom and dad tonight and sleep for five hours." He didn't quite sleep for five, but I got a stretch of almost four at one point which is unheard of in this house! I'm asking Katie to move in today :) He woke up around 2 and was fussing a little and I got him back to sleep and then decided to put him in his crib for the first time. He's been sleeping in the pack and play right next to the bed since we brought him home and I haven't moved him into his crib because I'm up with him SO much it was just easier to have him right there. It took me a while to get back to sleep listening to every little noise on the monitors, but he did great and I slept really soundly once I got there. I'm hoping for many more nights like last night! The shower was really fun and I got to see some family who hadn't gotten to see Luke yet so that was nice. I won the "who knows Amanda best" game and a Yankee pumpkin candle. I love winning anything and so does Tommy so I feel like Luke's going to be competitive :)
Kevin's mom and Amanda with mouths full of bubble gum. They had to chew a piece of gum every time they got a question about Kevin wrong!
Sarah and the girls. Love them!
