we may be getting somewhere

Lily woke again last night at 11:30 and I fed her. Then she woke at 2:30 and we battled until 3:20. She then slept until 5. The time she was awake seemed to be getting shorter.

I feel a little more rested and I'm hoping that tonight Dave will feed the 11:30 and then I can sleep until 2 or so. That would be so fabulous to get at least 5 hours of sleep....ahh, bliss.

Moving away from the sleep world, I think we will venture out today to the farmer's market. I love the idea of buying the veggies from someone local. We also loved to get Eloise the flavored honey stick's. She loves them.

My mom is coming down tomorrow with my niece and nephew. I'm pretty excited to have the help and for my mom to clean my floors. Eloise loves my niece and is attached to her from the moment she arrives.

Another happening of note, my grandma just found out she has lung cancer. A bit shocking, but not really. This is her fourth cancer. She has had breast, colon and throat. She has survived them all so we are hopeful for this one. It is stage 1 which is positive, but she will still have to do chemo. She is in good spirits and knows where she is going if the Lord does happen to take her home. She is 79 and very busy so she is looking forward to "slowing" down. I don't really think she will, but she has high hopes. She is amazing women who is very blessed to have 12 Great-grandchildren. Lily is #12. I just can't believe that. I will never be able to see that unless Eloise has children when she is 18 and then her child does too....but let's hope not!

off to have a wonderful weekend.
