little letters

Dear Mia, we had such a good sleep schedule goin'! You'd go down between 8:30-9 and sleep until 7. But every night has been a surprise this past week. Sometimes you wake up at 3, eat, go back to sleep. One night you were up at 11:30, 1, ate at 1:30 but didn't fall back into a deep sleep until 3:30. I got used to my sleep and I need it, ha ha! Are you having a growth spurt? Do you need to start eating rice cereal? Are you teething? This part of being a mom is hard! I have to make a decision on what will help you, and I want to make the right choice!
P.s. You're still cute as ever!

Dear Eric, I admire how dedicated you are to your job! Such a hard worker!!
P.s. Take those middle of the night work calls into a different room. Like I said before, I NEED my sleep. Love you!

Dear running, I really want to start training big time but I need a running buddy! I'm not very good at motivating myself. And I need a baby jogger. Definitely need that!

Dear money, why don't you just grow on a tree in my back yard? That way I can get a baby jogger! Such a simple solution to my problem :)

Dear readers blog friends, what do you think of the sneak peak picture from Mia's 3 month shoot? See why we call her our angel baby? She is perfect! I can't wait to see the rest! Even though she is over 4 months old now... ha ha!

Dear Mother's day, I am loving that I get to cash in on you! I definitely plan on being pampered (hint hint husband). But I really love that I'm a mom to the sweetest baby ever. Such a blessing to have her in my life! I'm excited to celebrate Father's day as well, because without Eric, there would be no precious Mia! I love my little family!

Jennifer said...

Love this photo! She is most likely teething.

Dee Stephens said...

I think she's ready for some rice cereal.

Elsha said...

I need a running buddy too! But life would be too kind to put us in the same place :( Your babe is adorable

Tami Rebekah said...

lori said...

love the picture! hope that she starts sleeping good for you again soon ;)

Jessie said...

Sweetest picture ever! As a first time mom you worry about everything. Trust your gut, try a few things, and wait wait wait. You will get your sleep back! Wish we lived closer. I'd totally let you borrow our single jogger all summer and be your jogging buddy. Have you tried ksl or craigslist?

Heather Leigh said...

Aww, She is just precious! I had to put my baby on rice cereal because the milk just wasn't cutting it anymore. :)

Evie has been having an odd sleeping schedule too! I have tried to put her own a schedule and she was doing great! But now she's got her own thing going haha!

lex said...

Same thing happens to Ellie at four months! And we haven't been able to get back to regular sleep schedule yet! Ahh! ;) Cutest photo ever!

Dear Courtney, I cannot relate to any of this, minus the money part.

J and A said...

That pictures is the sweetest!! I'd like a money tree too. :) Check for 2nd hand running strollers, my friend found one that was pretty much brand new for way cheap! :)

We have been going through a weird sleep regression right now too.....at 10 months :(( Hoping it gets back on track for all of us!!

Afton Brinkerhoff said...

I don't think she's teething. She'd be super duper cranky all.day.long. She's probably going through a growth spurt . You can try rice cereal now, but z hates that stuff and it never helped her sleep longer anyways.

Laura Beth said...

Come to Canada and run with me!!

Rebecca said...

Oh my word, that photo is adorable and the hat, I love it. Iit alway makes me smile when I see your pics of her pop up in my Instagram feed, she always looks so happy!

Shio Waline said...

You are so cute!! And your baby is sooo ADORABLE!! I heart her pic, I wish I did stuff like that for my kids when they were babies! And yes, SLEEP is such a big thing for me, I know your pain :( I hope you get some good sleep soon, good thing she is cute though huh :)

Shio

Love that sweet picture. So Brooklyn just went through this. I thought I was loosing my mind. I pt felt almost like the early days. 2.5 weeks later and we are back to normal. She might just need more food...growth spurt? I couldn't figure it out but glad my little sleeper is mostly back. Best of luck. It's hard to loose an angel sleeper but hopefully it's temporary and she'll be back soon. Get some naps in! Ha

LOVE this shot of her :)!

Leslie said...

I have been dying to get back into running too. It's still going to be awhile for me though since baby isn't even here yet! Such sweet pictures of your baby girl :) She is adorable!!
