sleep...what's that?

While this beautiful babe figures out her days and nights we are doing a lot of this around here.
And since this silly sprout figured out how to get out of her crib during naptime-there's even more time to play! :)

good luck with the sleeping thing! My twins just learned how to crawl out of their cribs and it's driving me nuts! It's changed everything 8)

Em said...

1st of all... I feel your pain. I like my sleep... Second she's adorable and third... I love the frame around her photo. Where did you get it? Good luck with all the not sleeping and tons of fun playing...

Bria had her days and nights confussed too! It's so frustrating until you look at her cute little face huh? Hope she figures it out soon so you can all get some rest!

p.s. I hate fake sleeping pictures and I need to validate that I am actually asleep in this pic.

4 days on 2 hours sleep/night makes even the carpet feel like Intelli-gel

Karen said...

not easy to sleep when baby sleeps when you have a toddler!

susette said...

i would be happy to tend these little cuties anytime!

Sara Ancich said...

Are those eyes blue or brown at this point?

Tiffany said...

Don't you love it! Great photos..and Collin, I am glad to know that you are actually sleeping in this photo and not faking =) Have a great weekend!

Hayley said...

First of all...Colin - you totally looked zonked out in that pic.

Second - She is one of the most beautifulest (yes it's a word, lol) little girls in the world!!! Great job guys!!!

My ds never had his days nights confused BUT he did sleep through the night until he was a year and a half and then it was just random. At 3.5 now, he is doing much better, but still gets up once a night about 2 times a week.

Good Luck!!!

I'm not a serious scrapper (yet) so this may be a silly question...how did you get the pretty white border around the edges of the photo of your newborn? Is it digital or actual stamp and ink? Beautiful photo and beautiful family!
Thanks.

I feel ya on the no sleep thing. Only mine is almost 4 months now and she's got it down! A couple of times this week she has slept 12 hour stretches (without eating) through the night, and HOLY COW I feel refreshed!!! But when she was your baby's age she was a 'no sleeper.'

Love the changes you have made to your blog, and the new pictures. Cute digi frame around the photo. And pink suits her ;)

Look how alert she is, awwe and touching Daddy's head as they snooze. I loved the Bobby pillow, it is a life saver, especially for nursing. I guess it's time for a toddler bed for bis sis!!! How fun! Thanks for sharing!

Jennifer said...

She is absolutely BEaUtiful!!! I love your pictures as usual. I too am curious how you did the edging of her picture. What program do you use?

She is absolutely a doll!!! I love your pictures as usual. I too am curious how you did the edging of her picture. What program do you use?

Christi said...

Ah, I remember those days...then you have that first night with 8 hours of sleep and you awaken with alarm, wondering if you were stricken deaf, or something. :) Until that blissful day, follow Colin's lead and enjoy naptime!

Holly T. said...

Yeah...been there, done that! My oldest learned to get out of his crib when his brother was born too. I think they know they are missing out on something!
Grab little naps when you can.
Blessings,
Holly

Darlene said...

Enjoy all this deliciousness that these girls are providing you!! These are such precious times (even with lack of sleep...hehe)

How absolutely darlin' is that little girl... (both are) but your little babe has grown so much in such a short few weeks.

blessings & hugs

ps.. hope you get some sleep soon... gets easier with each kiddo!

momodafoxes4 said...

yep...joining all the other comments you've been given...crash when and where you can!!

And I think the photo edging and swirl effect can be found in Adobe Photoshop Elements..yes?

Good luck with you beautiful babes! It just doesn't last!!

She is absolutely beautiful! So sorry that she has her days and nights mixed up. Makes it very hard for mommy who has a toddler. Try and get rest when you can.

Awwh, such a special time in your lives! The sleep deprivation is the hardest part, but as you know, it's all worth it. You are a beautiful family!

Mary and Ryan said...

Oh my!! I am in love with little Quincey!

She is so beautiful, Elizabeth! I love her eyes!

Kristi Lee said...

That baby girl is gorgeous. I love how alert she looks in all these pictures. The sleep thing gets better of course. My oldest is 15 and was 2 when his sister came along. I think that is when I started drinking coffee :-) Now I have a toddler again. It's great fun! Enjoy!
