Is it really only 11:00?

It feels so late to me...I think b/c Emma had such a hard time falling asleep tonight. She already went to bed a couple of times and ended up getting back up, but now I think she is finally down for the night. I was ready to go to bed around 8:30 actually.

She took a step or two tonight!!! She has been pushing her little chair around the living room all night (she does that all the time) and I put her down about two feet from it, she stood there for a minute and took a step toward it so I scooted it back a little and she took another step, but then she went down on her hiney!! She didn't do any more than that, though!! It won't be long I'm sure until she is walking!

I ordered her a couple of birthday presents tonight, too. It's still a couple months until her birthday, but I found something I really wanted to get her and it was on sale/clearance so I was afraid if I didn't order it now then it would no longer be offered later. 

We had a busy morning today - we ran errands starting around 7:30. About 11:00 we both fell asleep on the couch for about three hours.  You know, before I was never really able to take naps. I always felt so much worse after the nap, but these days I find myself taking naps from time to time. Usually on my Fridays off Emma and I snuggle up on the couch for either her morning or afternoon nap or she falls asleep on me while I'm reclining on the loveseat. I guess as you get older you need more naps, huh!?!?

Well, now that she is finally out I think I might try to get some sleep myself - though, now I won't be able to fall asleep. That's how it usually is - when you can't go to sleep you could easily fall asleep, but then when you finally get the chance you're too wired! Ha!!
