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.
