We have been back for almost a week and it has been wonderful but also a little hard when it comes to adjusting.

The first morning we were here, Lily woke up at 5:30am. (way too early)

The next morning at 6:30am. (a little better)

The third morning (sunday) she finally woke up at 7:30 (the usual) only for it to actually be 6:30am due to the time change. (can’t I get a break!?)

It’s a 5 hour time difference that when it comes to bed and wake up time, kind of throws things a little off.

The best thing to do is to just go about the present time. Which is what we have been doing but, I must say I’m having a bit of a hard time with it myself.

Two nights ago I was asleep by 9pm and up by 6am.

Last night I was asleep by 10pm (a bit more normal) but, I’m writing this post at 6am and I’ve been up since 4:30am. (totally not normal)

The older I get the harder it gets for me and the more I notice things like daylight savings.

I hope to soon be back to regular timing. Whatever that is.

Here are some cell pics of our almost week here.

Oh! And I know I said I would start mamas&their babies when I would get back from vacation but, as you can see, I’m still adjusting. However, go see Natasha as a beautiful mama in her own mamas&their babies segment. And stay tuned becauseI have some beautiful mamas&their babies stored for you!
