We've had a lot to celebrate today...
First, I must report our little scrumptious one is sleep training like a champ! I always begin at around a month and this little lady is already putting herself to sleep for naps and going down to bed around 6:30pm (that's if mom doesn't eat anything unusual that upsets her poor tummy!) I couldn't be happier about her emerging sleep patterns--for a schedule-oriented mama, this is bliss. The sooner we conquer sleep, the sooner our life finds its new normal. We are already partway there! woo hoo!! I think God heard my prayers for a good sleeper--there's no other way I'd be surviving otherwise. :)
Secondly, we celebrated our sweet pup, Custer's birthday! The boys were so excited to make an event out of it... Cus turned 8 yesterday, but we decided to extend the celebration to today when he could have some "friends" over for a party. Unfortunately, one friend hurt her paw yesterday (stitches, splint, etc.), so Custer and his cousin, Jackson, had their own puppy fun together. Mimi and Papa (good sports) also came over to celebrate with the boys. We all wore party hats, sang "happy birthday", and watched the pups enjoy some puppy snacks. Are we cheeseballs or what?! I feel like I'm making up for the past few years of missing the "big" event... Other priorities? You think? :)
