Madds had a 5am waking (she hasn't had a night feed in awhile) and then went back to sleep until 720am. She woke with a smile! Yay!!
We had a good hour of hanging out (mom plays her stupid FB games with Madds on her lap loving the changing colours and we talk about our day ahead and the games and everything). At 820 she was showing signs of tired so we had a small feed and we snuggled until she fell asleep.
Well, snuggled is a little misleading... Maddy struggled and fussed and I held her tightly (like a swaddling blanket) pinning her arms and legs down. She sucked on the soother and fought for about 10 minutes before succumbing to sleep. Yes, she fights sleeping that intensely! Which is why I think CIO is hard for her right now. But she's been down for 30 minutes now, a chance for me to write and drink coffee (yum!) and catch up on emails and relax because soon the Nunu will wake!
