Last night was a great night! Lily slept for her longest extended period between feedings (4 1/2 hours) and then went back down in her cradle pretty easy and slept for an additional 3 1/2 hours. Whoo-hoo! It doesn't sound like much but those extra few hours of uninterrupted sleep have made a huge difference in how I felt during the night and my level of tiredness today. Hope she can keep this up!
Yesterday was my birthday (last year in my 20's) and we took Lily into the office to meet my co-workers and have birthday cake (carrot cake... mmm!) that Hilary made for me. I was a little nervous beforehand about how Lily would do at her first "social function" outside of the house but she ended up doing really well. She even let Amy hold her for a long time - I'm thinking she probably recognized her voice from hearing it every day while in the womb (since Amy sits right next to me). It was really nice to get out of the house and see everyone at work and catch up on what's been going on there. After our office visit, we took Lily on her first trip to Target and Starbucks! She pretty much slept the entire time we were there but I think she enjoyed the trip... :)
