Every 3 hours...

Imagine... you're in your soft warm bed, enveloped between your 300 thread count sheets with your face in that "sweet spot" on your pillow. You are just drifting into dreamland, a droplet of drool happily forming at the corner of your fully relaxed mouth. The crickets are chirping. The moon is pregnantly hovering over the roof of your quiet home. All baby monitors are silent. And miracles of all miracles, your husband is actually NOT snoring. You fall asleep...

... and then the baby wakes up.

Repeat every 3 hours. Seriously. My daughter is 6 months old. She SHOULD be sleeping much longer stretches than that. But, without fail, the past week this has been my nightmare. 10 minutes after I crawl into bed she is waking up. Then she wakes up two more times before morning. I feel like I have a newborn again! And it's really doing damage to my days because I feel sleep deprived and lazy. I just want to sit on the couch like a vegetable.

She is cutting her first tooth. It's got the smallest layer of skin over it... as thin as rice paper. I know it will break through if not today than definitely tomorrow!

So! Scrapping has been good lately. My Aunt and Gramma came down for a visit and I was busy with my Mosh Posh layouts and lots of sewing. We were so crafty! We found the cutest doll patterns on Etsy by Bit Of Whimsy. I made a baby doll for Grace and for a friend as a gift. I'll have to post pics of them soon.

Here are my pages for the Mosh Posh Design Team this month:

I love October Afternoon! I really enjoyed these papers because they are double sided with a colorful pattern on one side and a black & white one on the other side. It was very versatile. I also had tons of fun playing with the Maya Road chipboard bird mini album (which I took apart to use the birds as embellishments). I'm making a decorative mobile from the rest of the birds. I can't wait to see how that turns out!!! ;)

Anyways, I better go. I have errands to run today. Once the baby wakes up from her nap (lucky her) We'll have to be ready to go. :)
