First Day of School

Lily had her first day of school on Monday! It was definitely an experience. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have to bring her with me on campus so that I can give her to Alec after his class at 8 am and before my class at 9 am. I come home at noon and then head back to campus with Lily at 1 pm after dropping Alec off at work. I was so excited to pick out her clothes for that day even though I knew no one would see them. I spend most of the day putting on hand sanitizer because nothing seems clean enough on campus anymore. I never thought I would join the ranks of the stroller pushing, student mommy's, but here I am!

On another happy note, the other night, Lily slept from 11 pm until... drum roll please... 4:30 am!!! That's right. 5 1/2 hours straight! She woke up to eat, and then she went back to sleep from 5 am to 7 am!! Talk about a miracle!! We still have lots of sleep to catch up on, but hey, one step at a time.

Here's our little sleeping beauty in her swing. Thank goodness for this thing! It's the only way I get anything done during the day! Even with the swing, I find myself getting distracted by her cute little noises she makes while she sleeps. :)

I'm glad to have the first week of school out of the way! Just 15 more to go in the semester... :)
