today was the first day i got up and dressed and did my hair by 9 am in months. mostly because we have had lots of visitors today. but also because mikey slept so well for me last night! i'm hoping the little "tricks" work again tonight that I tried last night. it felt good to wake up and not feel desperate at some point in the night. we slept in at least 3 hour blocks. he has had two big awake periods today, but mostly has done great with naps again. we also got to break out the stroller this afternoon and go for a little walk down to get the mail. good times! i couldn't ask for more.
