I heart growth spurts (said no one ever)

Charlotte has been in a growth spurt for the past few days. Last night this lovely spurt meant no sleep. I literally spent 3 stress and anxiety filled hours sleeping and about 6 house bouncing and/or feeding the little one.

Remember when I was all excited that the lady was sleeping through the night? That is no longer the case. Hopefully it’s only temporary, but sheesh. I’m tired.

As a slight tangent, I have an app called Wonder Weeks, which helps to predict a child’s developmental leaps based on their due date. It provides symptoms to recognize the leap, information on what to expect after the leap and activities to help you through the leap. I’d definitely recommend it.

Anyway, send me positive vibes for a peaceful evening.

In the meantime, some pictures of the crankster staring at the chandelier (the best way to soothe her lately… Chandelier bouncing):

And nap time on momma today (please note the hand print impressions on her face… A symptom of sleeping face down)…

And some others from the weekend including a sneak peak of the naming ceremony, pedicures, a gorg scarf my friend made me, and my new favorite children’s book. A must have!

  1. Sending positive vibes for a full nights rest tonight! Elliot JUST for the first time went 9 hrs between feedings, timing wise it didn’t quite work out for a full night of sleep, but it made me happy knowing he could go that long. That app sounds really helpful, im gonna look into that now 🙂

  2. Those dang lightning bolts on that wonder weeks app—I dread those weeks! It’s really amazing how accurate it is too!
