We had our first rough night in a while last night. Not necessarily bad for him but exhausting for me. Ayden got fussy around 7:00 (though not gassy fussy which is good...). He seemed to be over tired. All of his naps were cut short all day for one reason or another and I think it just caught up with him. We finally swaddled and put him to sleep around 8:30 and he slept hard! He woke up to eat around 10 and fell back to sleep nursing. I woke him one more time around 11 to put his night time diaper on him and nurse him a little more so he wouldn't wake up hungry after I had only slept for an hour or two. He woke at 2:30 as usual, we got back to bed by 3 then he was up by 4 and ready to party. I think his night sleep just got moved up a bit. If I had been sleeping while he was it would have been fine...
My wonderful hubby could tell how tired I was this morning so after Ayden's late morning feeding David strapped him into the stroller, leashed up the dog and got out of the house so I could nap for a bit. Though it was short, it was sweet! Perhaps quality over quantity works here too? I slept so hard that when they got back I felt like it had only been a couple of minutes rather than a half hour. I could have slept a bit more but I felt pretty awake for some reason.
We ended the day with a wedding:
And another victory for our CATS in the NCAA tournament!
Ayden was relatively good at the wedding. It landed right during feeding time so I pumped before we went and David fed him during the precessional. When the bottle was almost gone, David took him to the "Family Room" (a little sound proof room with a 2 way mirror in the back of the church). I was a little nervous about taking a baby to a wedding, (we didn't want to be "those people") but it was the perfect set up. Of course he looked so cute in his little outfit!

A rough start (for me), but perfect ending to Ayden's first St. Patrick's Day!!
