Lydia is absolutely LOVING bath time without the hammock. Tonight we put her in her baby tub (inside the big tub) and her little legs just went flying... splashing water all over! She'd then pause to look at me and grin as if to say, "Look at what I can do, Mama!" We put a little toy at her feet that she can kick at. I'm not really sure if she likes kicking the toy or just likes kicking in general, but it's great fun to watch her.

Night time has been glorious around here lately. Knock on wood, but I think we might have tackled the old bedtime woes. Our whole family is finally getting good nights of rest and Brent and I even get to have a couple of hours to ourselves after the baby is in bed.

It's really great to be getting 7-8 hours of sleep again. Two whole weeks now without a middle-of-night feeding. This is super helpful as I've started my new job. Now I can get Lydia up around 7 to feed her, dress her, and do our other little morning routine items. Then she goes down again for a morning nap at 8. Typically this nap will last until 10, so I get a couple of hours to eat breakfast and do some work. The rest of her day is not usually so predictable, so I try to make the most of this time.

Tomorrow we leave for Cincinnati to visit my family. Mom's birthday is tomorrow and Joshua's is Sunday. I'm very much looking forward to celebrating with them! It will be interesting to see if Lydia maintains her good sleep habits away from home. She's never spent a whole night in the Pack N Play (at least not since her first week home from the hospital). Here's hoping she'll still sleep through the night as long as I keep the rest of the bedtime routine the same!
