she did it! I did it!

she slept through the night! not once but twice! the first time I tucked her in comfy cozy (our little burrito baby) around 10 pm. b was on call and she and I set up camp downstairs due to strong paint fumes (long story) in the bedroom. lulu and I curled up on the couch and slept soundly until... 5:45 am! a record!

the next night was even better. ginny went to bed again at 10 pm and woke up after 6 am! mama is verrrrry happy! a bit more rested and very happy.

what did I do? I wore a pair of pre-preg pants! even though I couldn't button them I was able to get my flabby pp ass into a decent pair of pants. b and I went to a dinner party saturday night and I actually, sort of, looked like my old self. I had my hair cut and colored and I was sporting mascara AND lipstick. man... it felt good.

Congratulations, those are both HUGE accomplishments!

I can't get my prepreg pants even over my thighs even though I'm less than 10lbs over my pp weight. Oh well.

What a great sleeper! Jasper sleeps from about 8-8 and I wake him once to dream feed.. but he screams all night in gas pain so it's not like I'm getting any sleep while he's sleeping! Poor little guy.

Yay for some sense of normalcy--that is, in your completely "new normal" world that is Ginny!
And be easy on yourself..I've always heard "9 months up, 9 months down."
