Hila usually wakes up between 6:00-7:00am. I generally hear her playing or singing at the early end of that and we don't go in there until she sounds like she needs us -- sometimes 30 minutes later.
Since we both work from home, we don't get up until Hila wakes us (and then Menachem usually lets me sleep a little later...).
This morning we woke up at 8:15, on our own. Hmmmm. 8:25 comes and goes. Strange. And then 8:35.
I don't generally worry, but Hila's not one to sleep for 13 hours straight, so maybe we should just go check on her....
We quietly turn the knob of her door and we hear her sucking an empty bottle--we leave a bottle of water in her crib for her.
Who knows how long she's been up, but there's my little angel sitting up quietly, finishing her water bottle, not making a peep, letting her mommy and daddy sleep late.
She was very excited to see us. :)
