Once upon a time, there was a girl named Rachel Clare. She was energetic and busy and full of life. Then she had a baby, and suddenly she was tired and lethargic. Then that baby started sleeping through the night, and she was able to feel like herself again. Then Rachel Clare had another baby (this one a bit harder than the first) and she was tired and lethargic and wondered if she'd ever feel like herself again. Then that baby started sleeping through the night (much later than the first), and she again found her old self. Then she had a third baby, the same year she turned 30. And it was all downhill from there. She is tired and lethargic and sometimes (more than sometimes?) impatient and a tad grumpy. She's chalking it up to the fact that she hasn't slept for 4 months. Despite this fact, she's still desperately in love with the following baby, and plans on sleeping through the night soon. Because she wants to feel like herself, once again.
Little Maura Clare is 4 months old today. And she's just such a peach! (Well, from 7am-7pm anyway...)

Oh my gosh, I need to hold her! I want to hold her and have that sweet fuzzy baby head under my chin and breathe in that yummy baby goodness. She's so beautiful Rachel! She's just delicious!!!! And, a 12 hour stretch of being wonderful is pretty good :) Did I mention that she has good fashion sense? I love her little dress.

Rach, she is such a DOLL! I love these! (And YES- definitely blue-eyed! Too cool! You can tell her she gets it from her auntie. :) Though I think hers are bluer than mine.) I LOVE HER!

She is so gorgeous, Rachel! These sleepless night WILL end sometime. Good thing she's so cute, huh? Try to enjoy ever minute. It all passes so quickly. For instance, how can E be 6 years old already? Crazy! Love ya!

Awww the yumminess. I miss her already! Sleep...sleep, sleep. Wherefore art thou sleep?? I miss it too. Was just thinking today what a lame mom I am lately & how I used to be so energetic & fun. Oh yeah, that was when I was sleeping all night every night. Not having a full night's rest in 6+ months is not good for anyone. BUT I know it will come....I'm waiting..................

crystalyn says:

first of all, she's gorgeous. second of all, this too shall pass. third of all, perhaps the fact that i had my first child at the age of 30 is why i am chronically exhausted ; ) thanks for the insight.

and in all seriousness, i hope you can start feeling like yourself soon.
