So it is 6:25am and I’m sitting with my first frappe of the day. For those of you who aren’t Greek frappe is the Greek’s version of iced coffee. I have been up since 2:00. I awoke worried that my little one hadn’t woken up yet. As one mommy so well put it the other day, I wake up freaking out that they’re still breathing! Well that was me last night/this morning, of course the little one was fine, she decided to have an extra long slumber before her feeding. Well once the feeding was done she wouldn’t burp well so all in all that took 45 minutes. Now I’m not sure about you but after 45 minutes of being awake, I’m done. So I did what everyone does but you’re not supposed to do, I picked up my phone. I checked Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, I was even tempted to look at Google+. I played my Words With Friends and checked emails. Put the phone away and waited for this amazing slumber and rest to take over my body. Ummm yeah not so much! So I Googled the best transitions for getting your baby to sleep the night in their crib (our little one is still in her bassinet), I Googled the transition of ready made formula to powder or concentrate (we’ve tried both and she didn’t like either). I even Googled ways a mom can sleep better at night. That was a joke! I listened to my husband snore (sorry babe) and my little one gurgle, cry and moan in her sleep, even getting up a few times to make sure she was okay. Everyone was fine and snuggled in their beds while visions of sugar plums or ponies, danced in their heads. And then there was me…so I did it…I got out of bed. On the couch I found out that our TV was down, really we have to do something with this high speed internet that never works when you need it! When it came back on Mystic Pizza was my show of choice. I put away a load of the baby’s laundry, folded a load of our laundry and put in another load. I paid some bills and even took a shower. And now I sit here typing away sipping my frappe at 6:30am. Not sure about what you’re planning to do on your Sunday but I feel pretty accomplished already!

Sounds like a great Sunday, even if it got started a bit too early! Thanks for the picture by mail – what a cutie! I bet she looks adorable asleep 😉
It actually has been great…ask me again at 5 when I’m falling asleep! She is a cutie and totally makes it worth it, especially when she is in a deep sleep and starts smiling. That smile melts all the stress, tiredness, and worries of the world away!
I love this!! It’s all part of this amazing thing called motherhood!! Enjoy it!! By the way did I tell you how beautiful she is!! She looks just like you!!! Filakia polla to you all!!
First Frappe of the summer!!! you beat me to it!
I just had my first Greek frappe last night at the Arlington Festival! Hope you get some sleep:)
Enjoy the rest of the day
LIke any new mother, you will have these nights on occasion…. But you REALLY need to get sleep yourself. I know, it’s not easy, just wait until she takes the car out for the first time! Enjoy every minute, before you know it she will be 26 like Jonathan or 23 like Natalie (hard to believe it!) Of course, I am still 39! Love ya
