Happy New Year! I had no plans of staying up until midnight to watch the ball drop last night, but Miss Riley must have - she was wide awake to ring in 2009! Around 9pm she must have started to think that with the end of 2008 also came the end of milk, because the little stinker nursed for THIRTY-FOUR minutes! That is very unlike her - she is typically an 8 to 10 minute eater, so 34 minutes took me by surprise. After that meal she was wide awake and ready to party! Luckily, she slept very well through the night and Kevin and I are rested this morning.
Another thing that took me by surprise yesterday was how I found Riley in her crib. I put her down for a nap in the afternoon in her crib. As always, I put her into her sleep positioner on her side. When I came back into her room later to check on her, she was sound asleep on her STOMACH! She had turned herself from her side to her stomach, even with the positioner! I chalk it up to chance and don't think that my 3-week old is able to turn over yet, but I was very surprised!
As I write this, she is sound asleep in her swing. She is so beautiful and so precious and I couldn't love her any more. 2009 is going to be an incredible year.
