What a strange Saturday.

My Saturdays usually go something like this.

Wake up at 8am with the baby.  Hang out with her for awhile then put her down for her nap.  Take a shower, be lazy, get motivated and do something.  Get baby up from nap - spend time with her doing whatever we do, run errands.  Make dinner, eat dinner, night.

This Saturday I made the mistake of telling my good friend Stephanie that my kid was doing GREAT sleeping through the night.  She woke up at 3am crying...and Grace isn't really a middle of the night crier.  She usually just chats with herself until she falls back asleep.  So I went down and again, not entirely convinced she was even awake.  I got her out of bed once and rocked her, turned on her CD, and tried a couple other things...but she cried off and on until 6am.  (No fever, sign of sickness or anything out of place). 

At 6am I took her upstairs with me and let her sleep in my bed - boy did she think she was a bigshot!  Finally she fell asleep which was cute and snuggly until I realized my arm was falling asleep and this was NOT going to be comfortable.  Ah well - finally fell asleep and slept off and on until she woke up at 10am. 

We got up, hung out, I was TIRED.  We didn't do much of anything this morning and she finally went down for her nap at 2pm.  I may have taken a shower and fallen asleep on the couch.  I cleaned a bit, made lunch and basically did nothing all afternoon.  Around 4 she woke up, we ran to the store and got a few things picked up.  Came home, made a cheesecake for my mother in law for mother's day, contemplated making brownies, hard boiled eggs for church tomorrow and feed the kiddo.

Then we watched a Max Lucado kid's video and she went back to bed.  Sooo, a whole lot of nothing today.  Which I kind of feel bad about since my husband had to work 13 hours at the teen center...but he is a tough guy, he can take it!  :)  It's been a good, snuggly day with my kiddo but other than that, didn't accomplish much!
