Bad Afternoon/Good Night

We visited cousins Dawn and Tayla this afternoon, and had a great time catching up! We're so fortunate to have such great family members close by - they are so supportive and kind, and always are available to listen to any concerns/questions I might have. And Tayla is going to be a great baby-sitter in the future. This photo is from when they first visited us after we brought Ava home.



After we came home from visiting, Ava decided she was done napping for the day, so she was up from 3:00-10:30pm last night without a nap. And she was CRANKY by the time bedtime rolled around...we had tried to get her to fall asleep several times during that time period, and she absolutely refused! We gave her a nice, warm bath, wrapped her up in a cozy blanket, and then I gave her a bottle (just to make sure I was feeding her enough). That did the trick - before the bottle was empty, she was out! And she ended up sleeping until 4:30am today, so she must have been REALLY tired.

We've got our Mommy & Me class this afternoon, and my 6-week postpartum check up after that...it's going to be a busy day!
