I'm happy to report that I slept eight hours last night -- not in a row -- but I think Anna Sophia may be getting this sleeping in the night thing. Well, she did last night anyway.
During the other five nights of her life, she had been sleeping in shorter stretches, mostly during the day. At night, she has been up every half hour or so as I try to figure out what she needs.
Of course her schedule is a bit upside down, just last week she learned to breathe, to see, to live in a world outside the womb.
Today marks one week since Anna's birthday... it has been a joyful, sleep-deprived journey. I love every minute of it, even the crying parts.
