Up at 3 AM go figure

I'm up at 3 AM - my beautiful daughter has decided that night is day and day is night. She slept ALL day and has now decided that she wants to be up all night. UP-ALL-NIGHT: I thought that was just a nick at night sloagan but I am experiencing it first hand hmmm what to do, what to do...

Alright so it's official - we are out of the branch!! David and I were just released today. The new Branch president is Richie Hibbert, first counslor is Phil Meyer, and second is Ivan Hibbert. I'm sad we had to go but happy to be going back into our family ward. We are excited to go back to 4th ward and to reestablish old friendships. I am sad they took Lynette and Ivan - I love Lynette and am sad I won't see her much but her and Ivan will love the branch. I think Sister Issacson had the hardest time - the Berry's will be staying so it wasn't to hard on them.

We all bore our testimony's during sacrament - that was hard - we will miss all the branch kids that's for sure. We love them so much.

Sisters are wonderful! Two of my sisters, Becky, Brenda and I are are going to Christmas Memories in Tri-cities. It's a bizarre where you can buy and look and eat - I'm really looking forward to it. The only thing is I wish my other two sisters could be there as well as my Mom, I just love them all so much and miss them.

7 1/2 hours and...

she finally has slept through the night!!!!

It was amazing, she went to bed last night at 11 and didn't wake up until almost 6:30. I went to bed at 11 as well but unfortunately woke up at 5, I actually think it was David that woke me to say that he couldn't believe she had slept so long already - thanks honey. No, I probably was on the verge of waking as well so no loss. It was cute though cause as soon as she made one little peep he immediately says "can I go get her?". Little papa hen that he is, I sure do love him.

I'm sitting here typing as she is swingin' and loving her swing. It has a little mirror and some birdies going in a circle and she just loves it - Thank you Nancy!

Believe it or not I'm actually doing better with this blogging thing than I ever was at keeping a journal. I'll have to do a bit better though. I really like typing out my thoughts, it's much quicker than writing and a lot less messy:) I'm having a hard time figuring out all the accessory stuff though, Rachel or Melissa your going to have to show me how to do all the cool stuff you put on your blog.

Sleepwalking??? what the?!

Obviously I am very awful at writing (not like you Rachel, miss Queen of blogging!!) but to prove to you at how exhausted and out of sorts I've been lately I actually went sleepwalking for the first time ever last night. I woke up this morning with Alana laying next to me and having nooo idea how she got there.

I have been putting her out in the swing in the livingroom cause she sleeps in it so well, and when I woke up about 6 this morning low and behold there she was laying next to me, latched on. Smart girl, she must have figured out how to get out of the swing, crawl all the way down the hall, climb up into my bed, AND latch on - and all at only six weeks old - OH MY!! What is wrong with me?? I guess parenthood is really catching up with me more than I thought, or I'm just going nuts - no biggie, don't worry about little insane ol' Gail over here.

I even kept asking David - Are you sure you didn't go get her?? and he says the last thing he remembers is me climbing into bed after nursing her, that was around 1:30am. Well that's the last thing I remember too. I must have heard her on the monitor, turned both parts of the monitor off and brought her back to bed with me. Whoa, I'm absolutly stunned. Sorry if I'm going on and on about this but this has never happened to me before and is a bit unnerving and just a tad bit scary - I never thought I would do that. I guess when your body needs sleep it will get it anyway it can. I'm going to have to learn how to sleep better - on the other hand I feel like I actually slept pretty good last night, maybe a repeat... ;)
