Never Get Involved in a Land War In Asia

And never commit the other, lesser known classic blunder - bragging on the Internet about how long your baby sleeps. Clare took a long nap last evening. And then she was up, and hungry, at 11 p.m. And 1 a.m. And 3:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. And then she was up for the day! She has only, just now, at 1:30 p.m. fallen asleep again.

But - earlier - she smiled! For real this time. I am sure of it. It melted my heart. She was upset that I left her laying by herself on the floor while I watered plants. Once I picked her up, she grinned. I talked to her a bit, and she grinned some more. Then she fell asleep.

P.S. In case you are wondering, the title of this post is from a movie. Not just some random weirdness.

I am sucking the life out of you. But look how cute I am!


  1. You are cracking me right up. I need to resurrect my blog. If you have a blog and a new baby, certainly I can do it too.

  2. Hey! I just realized what she's wearing! And yes, she is sooooo cute.

  3. Love the movie reference, and I got it RIGHT away! Oh, babies, they make us so tired. You never knew you could actually function being so tired, did you? I type that as I'm downing the coffee this morning exhausted... But not from the baby - from the loud, loud rain storm that kept me awake and I prayed that Mason would sleep right through (he did).
