It Won't Be Like This For Long...

It's Christmas Eve... 10:30 PM... we all went to bed about an hour ago but Moana apparently decided that she's slept enough already today so she's up now (all WIDE EYES) and I'm trying to get her to go back to sleep in her swing (where she seems most content)...

We had an awesome Christmas Eve evening... celebrating Scott's promotion at work with a bottle of wine... roasted turkey, potatoes, and green bean casserole for dinner (I'm apparently a good wife/mom at Christmas!)... listening to Christmas music and dancing around the house... all good.

Would have been really good if Moana had gone to sleep like we wanted to, but she's 8 weeks old and hasn't quite got it that dark = sleep, so sometimes we're up later than we'd like to be.

Okay, I haven't slept through the night in 6 months, but who's counting?

Anyway, I'm reminded of a song by Darius Rucker called, "It Won't Be Like This For Long". Perfect song for any new parent dealing with a newborn who is up a lot at night. Download it from iTunes, or listen to it here... This song was written for us.

merry christmas to you and your family.

if it is any consolation, i have been up since 5:15 here with the 5 month old that thinks that is a good time for a yelling, squealing party in bed. :)

Great song! Oh gosh, I hope not wanting to sleep is not contagious...maybe sara brought it to your house! Notice the time (1:25). We're up for the second time already tonight! :) Merry Christmas!!

Merry XMas. Congrats to hubby on the promotion, that's great news. You should check out the book or video - Happiest Baby on the Block. My friend with an infant recommended it to me and I got the video at the library, it seems like some great techniques (swing is part of it) and I can't wait to try it out.
