Her first smiles...




Here are some pictures that I took yesterday after Wyndham woke from a 3 hour nap. She was in the best mood that we have seen her in three weeks. I was happy that she had this much energy and that she wanted to show off in front of the camera. I think these are her first 'toothless grins' since she lost two teeth last month. The tooth fairy was busy at our house! =)
We're really anxious to have this type of personality and energy be Wyndham's norm again- rather than the exception. But at this point, we are just thrilled to have it at all. Funny how something as small as joking around and being silly can seem like such a big deal. It's what I am always saying though- you miss 'normal and routine' as soon as things change from that norm.
I'm feeling my own energy level slip a little bit each day myself. Last night I could hardly keep my eyes open at 9:30pm. I almost always go to bed between 11:30 and midnight. I thought I was being so smart and turned out my light by 9:45. Still, when the alarm went off this morning I felt like I couldn't drag myself out of bed. The tired phase of my pregnancy seems to be kicking in all too quickly. And I fear that my normal routine is going to have to be put aside for a bit. I have a feeling my blog time will be the first to suffer. Just as a warning to those of you who love daily doses of Nitty. I'm going to do my best...but really, if I have to choose blog or sleep...at this point my body is screaming 'sleep'! I know you'll understand.
I can always beg Chip to jump in and guest blog. He seems to be sleeping just fine these days. =)

There's nothing like pregnancy sleep! It's awesome and necessary, and you need to get plenty of it if at all possible. Glad to know Wyndham is feeling better. Your whole world looks brighter if the kids are okay.

Glad that Wyndham is feeling better - you can definitely see it in her smiles!! I juggle sleep and blogging occasionally - sleep always wins...ok, not always...

Oh Jody, I've been away for awhile b/c of moving and no internet and that Wyndham smile was the best thing about getting back here:) And, as I fell asleep on the couch at 7:30 the other night, I'm going to have to agree with not fighting the pregnancy sleep, it's necessary for us and our little beans:)
