Late Nights with Maya

I've been trying to wean Maya from nursing. Slowly. And we've reached the only-once-in-a-while night feeding stage. This is hard for Maya! She gets hungry, and also wants that snuggly time with me in the middle of the night. Last night was particularly rough. She woke up at least 3 times. Finally Wes was able to get her back to sleep by rocking her (thank goodness for dads). But at one point I took her into the kitchen to feed her a cereal bar. She was SO groggy and tired. So was I. So I found this all really funny—especially her Flock of Seagulls hairdo and her puffy sleep suit (that she still wears). Check her out:

Post Edit:
I wasn't waking in the night to nurse Maya since about 9 months. I was just nursing her before bed, and she would make it through the night. But once I quit doing that, she started waking up hungry. She won't drink milk of any kind, and rice cereal before bed just hasn't been cutting it. I'm sure we'll find our groove... :)

Poor thing was probably thinking....well sucking would be a lot easier than eating right now! Too funny.

That was HYSTERICAL. I love the blank confused look on her face. Like she has no idea how she ended up where she is. The hair totally adds to the effect. Classic!

I LOVE this video. Maya is so adorable. Her expressions here crack me up! On another note, you're still nursing her in the middle of the night?! You are one strong woman. I totally made mine kick that habit at about 8 months. I couldn't handle the interrupted sleep anymore...I'm so lazy!

That hair is amazing! Loved this video, glad you thought to make it! I'm usually so annoyed and tired with night wakings I don't think I could of mustered up the energy, so I'm impressed! But then again I'm pregnant, so I'm already waking up multiple times per night, any extra and I'm not a happy mama. At least that's my excuse for now :)
