The End of an Era

For all you kid-less people out there--listen carefully: You know how every year around the end of October or beginning of November, there is this magical weekend? You know, we gain an hour...you can stay up 'til all hours of the night and wake up late the next morning, only to find out that it's NOT late? Yeah. Well--enjoy those weekends. Because once a cute little one comes--it's all over. (Well, Daylight-Savings-Time wise...) Joel and I naively thought that if we start pushing Ollie's bedtime back last week, by the time Saturday came he'd peacefully sleep until 7. Nope. What happened is that he woke up (and so did we) at 5:00a.m. for the next 3 nights! After letting him cry for 30-40 minutes, we'd have to get up. Man, he sure doesn't go back to sleep easily!

He is now waking at 6:20--which is much closer to normal. Ahhhh......

But all of you kid-less people out there--enjoy these while they last...

I was just telling mom how this time change was the best thing that has ever happened to me because now I don't hate the world near as much when I wake up... apparently this won't last...

Yeah we were at Erin's Grandparents for that weekend, sleeping on a hide-a-bed. With a six inch mattress. The only advatage we had from the time change was a morning which seemed to last for about a day.

well, Ava isn't waking up at 5 a.m., but she is waking up earlier because its so bright in her room by 7am now! That's kind of frustrating...i can't complain though..you guys have it way worse :)
