It’s 11 o’clock and my baby is still sleeping!!!


14 years ago, as a new mom, I would have woken him up hours ago; worried that “something’s wrong”. I’ve got 4 babies under my belt, though, and I know this is nothing but a growth spurt, he’s growing, that’s all.

I’ve come to know that there are 2 sure fire ways to tell your little one is about to bean stalk it up.

  2. They sleep, a lot! Well, I am here to tell you that I, “Let them sleep!”

Well, I’m off to enjoy a little cocoa and some quiet time :-)……..
