So, I took a long break from the blog but I'm going to try and post little things here and there. So far, I'm loving being a mother. Now that she's in my life, I don't know what I'd do if I lost her. I can tell I'm going to be a paranoid mother. I don't want her going anywhere without me, I flinch every time someone gives her to someone else to hold, I worry when she makes odd noises (her little grunts and groans) at night, and I could go on and on. She is my everything and I know Chase feels the same way.... Sadly that means I've got competition. She already won the "Chase's First Kiss of 2011" competition. haha Oh well, it could be worse.
Well today, I have a chance to update the blog because Hadley is taking a nice nap in HER room :) In her swing, not in her crib, but baby steps... She's not a fan of sleeping when it's quiet so instead of leaving the TV on at night for her I'm making the house a quiet zone during naps until she starts to get use to sleeping like that. Before I would have the TV on, doing dishes, or even letting people come over and see her because I knew she'd stay asleep if she were tired. Well, she fights sleep at night and I'm fixing that now instead of in a month. I can't imagine going back to work and her sleeping like she has. At least when I go back to work, I'll have help at night but it would be nice if neither of us had to get up much. As of now, I'm letting Chase sleep since I don't have to wake up early but I sure do give him dirty looks at night when she's being difficult and he's dead asleep.
Well, so far I'm liking the quiet zone. It's nice not having the TV on constantly (never thought I'd say that). Day 1 has gone smoothly up to this point. I thought she'd scream and cry for me to pick her up since it's so quiet but she didn't but for a second. We'll see how night 1 and day 2 go though before I start to brag about how genius I am. haha But I think we're on the right track.
Well, stay tuned. Hadley is going to her first Memphis basketball game Saturday with Aunt Angie and myself. Then Sunday, I'm letting Uncle Jay and Aunt Angie babysit while Chase and I TRY to have a relaxing afternoon without her. We're going to see Harry Potter and have sushi then I'm sure we'll be rushing back to pick up Hadley.
