The other night, Maribelle logged a personal best when it comes to nighttime sleeping. Normally her sleep schedule involves going to bed between 8 and 9 p.m., waking to eat between 1 and 2 a.m. and again at 5 or 6 a.m., and waking up for the day around 8 a.m. However, the other night our little sleepy head ate her last meal of the night around 7:30, fell asleep around 9:30, and ... get this ... didn't wake up until nine hours later at 6:30 a.m.! Now THAT's what I call sleeping through the night! Jer and I checked on her multiple times during the night, and in fact, I woke up at 6 a.m. that morning just WAITING for her to get up! I know it was a fluke and is likely part of a growth spurt she's going through, but it's nice to know that she CAN sleep for that long of a stretch! Thanks for the extra "Zs", Maribelle!
Today Maribelle had her first play date! A friend of mine had a baby girl two weeks after Maribelle was born, so we paid her and her two adorable kids a visit today. Maribelle and Nell didn't really seem to notice one another all that much, but it sure was fun to see two babies laying next to one another!
