I Just Won 5 Swag Buck on

I Just Won 5 Swag Buck on

It's a sleep Miracle

I have not written in a while mostly because nothing has changed.  I was putting Little Man to bed in his room around 10:30pm and he would wake up around 1am ever night giving me less than 3 hours of sleep in a row.  From then on I was keeping him in our room since my hubbie has not installed a fan in his room yet (his room get the hottest). 
Well, Last night I put Little Man to bed before 10pm.  I did a few things around the house and than I was in bed by 10:30.  When I woke up to get him the clock said 4:00am.  I had to put my glasses on to make sure that I was not seeing thing or dreaming.  WOW, it's a Miracle.  He finally sleep for more than 3 hours (yes, I know it is only one night) but at least now I know he can do it. 
  The reason why he slept for more than 3 hours is that he did not take good naps yesterday.  He was up at 7:30am.  He did sleep in the car on the way to taking my oldest to school, but not longer than 30 minutes.    His first nap was about an hours and his second nap was only 40 minutes long.  So, I guess I need to try to keep him from napping?

Praise God!  I needed sleep!

Little Man's room is to hot!

Sorry I have not posted in a few day.  Here is what has been going on:

Little Man 's room was so hot that we were waking up in a sweat after he was done nursing.  I also did not sleep as well because I was so hot.  We moved him back in our room in the port-a-crib.  Our room as a ceiling fan and is much cooler than Little Man's room.  I told my Hubie that we can move him back when we get a fan for his room. He has been sleeping for 3 hours at a time now.  That is one extra hour for me!
He still wake up during the night and most of the time he is still asleep when he is crying.  The other day I saw that his eyes were shut so I tried to wait out the crying, but it was a if he was crying in his sleep.  My poor Little Man what could he be crying about in his sleep?

Well the last few days I was getting the house ready for my husbands surprise Birthday party.  It was on Friday and was a hit.  Everyone had so much fun.  I was even able to put Little Man to sleep in his crib so that we could all play a board game.  I was so excited from the party and actually pulling it off that I had a hard time going to sleep.  I even got sick in the middle of the night (about 2-2:30pm).  Luckily Little Man was asleep while I was in the bathroom(TMI). 

On Saturday my kids were up at 7:30 and did not go back to sleep.  My Hubie was able to sleep all over the house, but I just had to stay up and watch the kids.  By the time 8pm rolled around I was walking around almost half asleep.  I am just glad that I did not have to make dinner (we had leftovers from the party). 

Now it is Sunday afternoon and last night was the same old same old.  Up every two hours for Little Man to feed.  My kids got up at 7:30 again this morning and we went to church.  Then we had some friends over for lunch and now I am ready to try to put Little Man down for a nap and try to take one myself.  YEA RIGHT.

Oh yea, Did I tell you that Little Man is 7 months today?  Now he can not only crawl, but can sit up on his own and now is pulling up to the couch.  Every time I turn around he is learning a new skill.

I must look beautiful because I finally got some real beauty sleep!

Sorry I did not post for two day.  I have not been getting much sleep, and the kids activities keep me busy.    Yesterday night Little Man was up almost every hour and as soon as I put him in his crib he woke up and we had to start the bed time routine all over again.ARG! 

As for last night I CHEATED.  Yes, I admit it.  I was so tired that when he woke up at 12am (and I had not gone to bed yet)  I brought him back to my bed to nurse him and I was so comfortable and warm that I fell asleep.  I do have to say that it was the best night sleep I have had since we started putting Little Man in his crib.  He only woke up 2 times during the night and then went right back to sleep. I know that he must go back to his room tonight, but I really did enjoy the sleep.

If it's not one kids its another!

Last night was the same as all the other nights.  Little man was up ever two hours, but at least it was not a school day, Right?

Today my daughter work me up at 6am.  I tried to tell her that today is not a school day but I guess she did not get the memo (she has rett syndrome).  I put her in bed with me and about 5 minutes later Little man was calling for me to come and get him.  So I went and got him and put him in my bed.  I nursed him to sleep.  But each one of them took turns waking up.  I wanted to go back to sleep, but I had a friend's baby shower that I needed to get ready for.  They both fell asleep in the car on the way to the shower.  I was so envious. 

Although I did enjoy my cuddle time with my girl and my little man.  They are only young once and I love them.
