Dear Cupcake,

Last night you slept 9 hours without waking up once* – that’s a record! But DANG, you just don’t want to give it up at bedtime. You yell and holler and gnaw on my shoulder – your eyes roll back in your head, eyelids close then you force them open and cry some more. I walk and walk and walk and walk and sing and sing and sing and sing and sing.

you are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray

I think you’re feeling better though, this last week was a little rough. I blame it all on Sophie Giraffe and her runny soy ink eyes and the Prenatal Vitamins I forgot to check the ingredients on. Also, you have no idea how many things have soy in them. Thankfully your dad is an amazing cook, who needs to eat out anyways? I just hope we get all these allergies sorted out soon, the doctors annoyingly keep asking about supplementing with formula and I really don’t want to. For as hard as breastfeeding was in the beginning it’s quickly turned into one of my favorite things in the whole world.

You cuddle up around me and we’re so warm together, your little sighs (hmmmph, hmmmph, hmmmph) as you gulp gulp gulp, you raise your eyebrows and make the most curious expression like you’re surprised every time. Pull away, look at me and smile, then right back to eating more determined than ever.

I watch you growing bigger and stronger everyday and think wow, we did that! Just me, you and my boobs – haha. It’s truly an amazing thing. xo

* Two nights ago I woke up at 2am to feed Peps and was a little chilly! I changed her diaper and put some little pants on her since she was just in a onesie. She slept through her 5am feeding till 8am. Last night I put her in pants before bed and she slept 9 hours. Pants rule!
