This new baby stuff is hard folks. Not that I ever thought it would be easy, lol. My girl is super cute and I love her to pieces, but I can't wait until she gets herself straight and realizes that people are awake during the day and sleep all night. Right now, she is a party animal and enjoys the nightlife. I, on the other hand, just want to pull my hair out.

I've been living on our couch since she likes to be awake at all hours. DH has to be up for work and out of the house most days by 4am. He's no longer surprised to find us girls wide awake on the couch when he comes downstairs in the morning. God help me if she is still pulling the third shift when I have to go back to work next month.

The only benefit to baby sleeping all day is that I've had some time in the afternoons and evenings after napping to work on my stitching. I have barnwood buttons almost done! Last Sunday, I also met up with the ladies at our LNS for the superbowl sale. I picked up the threads and first chart for the BRD mystery sampler and Christmas at Hawks Run Hollow. I saw this piece last year at the Woodlawn show and have been thinking of it ever since.

Hope you all are well and getting the stitches in!

Oh dear! Hang in there. Yes, I remember. I do not envy you. Soon, very soon, she will change it around for you. =)

My son is almost 14, but I will never forget those early sleep deprived months. Hang in there. Sleep is just around the next bend! BTW, my son began sleeping through the night at 2 months old. Enjoy your little one.

I used to tell my mother that if I could just get 8 uninterrupted hours of sleep, life would be so much better :)

Don't worry, this too shall pass and your little one will be sleeping at night.
