Yea, baby!

Miss C is doing great. As you can see in this photo, she is getting bigger and just changing at lighting speed.
She slept 9 hours straight last night (730pm to 430am) then went back to sleep after a hearty meal. While some books say sleeping this long constitutes sleeping all night, I stick by my original assertion that until she sleeps from the time she goes to bed until the time she has to get up for school, she is merely sleeping well rather than sleeping all night. In either case, yea!
The teeth are bothering her a little more than in the past, but that was bound to happen. She actually only ate once at school before coming home and that was at 8 in the morning and she didn't come home until almost 1! Isn't that crazy? Apparently she also took a 2 1/2 hour nap today after she ate so I guess between eating at home right before school and eating a full bottle little more than an hour later stated Miss C for a while. She certainly made up for it once she got home. Poor DH had to deal with a very hungry baby once he got back.
Well, that's pretty much it. We're going to be spending the weekend putting stuff up for the move. We're packing out next week and need to make sure that we have everything we want to take up ourselves separated. We're also going up north in a couple of weeks to check the place over and hopefully close then. Still stressing about selling the house here in Socal, but its a great house so it will sell. Its just a matter of time, right?
Have a great Labor Day weekend and thanks to everyone who called/emailed/dropped by for the birthday wishes yesterday!

Yay for sleep! I say it's called sleeping "through the night" when YOU get a full night's sleep! I bet you're looking forward to not having to keep the house ready for showings. Just a few more weeks!

Looking forward to all of that! Miss C is teething something fierce. Wish you were here to feel her little nubby teeth! She seems to think DH tastes reeeealllly good too!

One of the books I read said that sleeping through the night is anything longer than 5 hours. I laughed really hard at that.

Just curious, is there a reason why you put her to bed at 7:30? I try to keep Cate awake until I'm ready to go to bed (usually around 10 or 11) so we both get a nice solid block of sleep. Whatever works, you know? :-)

I used to put Miss C in bed at 9 pm but she moved up her bed time since she was tired earlier. We have to get her up at 6 am for school so this works out for her. Instead of having an overtired baby, we have one that still wakes up once a night after 8 or 9 hours. I think it works out well. On top of all of that, it allows us to spend some time together, take care of stuff around the house, sit around and talk. You know, stuff. Its an idea though.
