Hi monica. Last night actually went better. Dh said he barely napped all day and he finally went down around 6pm last night. He slept until 8, and got up to eat,which I knew he would since he hadn't eaten since 4. He went right back to sleep, and I put him back in his bed and he slept til 12am. That is good for him. Then I took him into bed with me and fed him and he actually slept really good then. He did eat again at 4am but then did not get back up for the morning until 6:30. So, I actually feel like I got a little sleep. It was a start. I didn't have to fight with him about it yet, so we'll see how it goes!

Rachael that sounds really good....I am glad you got more rest. Before you know it he will be sleeping all night. Since we do have sensetive babies there will be times when their sleep patterns will get disturb...due to colds, teething, growth spurts....Not all babies loose their pattern but I know caleb will. Last night was hard for me. We spent most of the day at the mall and caleb was on his best behavior but he didnt get any solids or enough milk....as soon as we got home I bathed him and that point he was starving and having a fit....He gets fed but does has the worse time putting himself to sleep I let him CIO for about 10 minutes but could not stand it any longer I kept coming in to comfort him but everytime I would put him down he would cry....finally after 40 minutes he calms down and falls asleep...but he falls asleep so deeply that he doesnt take his 10 pm bottle. I go to bed past 11 because I was watching a movie but for some reason I could not sleep....finally I fall asleep and at 1 am caleb is screaming for food. He has also leaked through his diaper. But he is fed and changed and falls asleep right away.....I again have a hard time putting myself to sleep and next thing you know my alarm goes off its 5 am and time to go to work. I am in such a bad mood....I am tired, I started my diet today, I got court papers yesterday my speeding ticket will cost $820, I am late on my AF.....and yesterday I snapped really bad at my 5 year old....so needless to say I am in a very bad mood...... :(

Sounds rough right now,. everything always tends to happen at once . doesn't it. That speeding ticket amount is absolutely ridiculous. Having to work really messes things up too. I find myself not being able to fall back asleep when I get up to feed Lucas. Then it is 5:30 and I am exhausted. Sorry you are having such a rough time right now.

yes what a wonderful way to start the new year....I am sure by the end of the week things will be better. I am going to try to fight my ticket...there is no way I will pay that amount... what a waste of $$$ rather spend it on Caleb. I wish I could be sleeping right now... I dont want to be here at work. But i would probably more miserable at any other job.

I would fight it too, that is crazy. It will get better too. Being exhausted always makes everything harder. I am hoping that when my mil gets into town this weekend she will offer to keep Lucas one of those nights, so I can get some rest. My fil is a superintendant for a construction co and is currently working a job in Virginia. My mil has decided to travel with him(he actually kind of insisted and got her a job with him, and she felt she had to go, did not want to) and will now only be home every other weekend. So that is all she will see Lucas. I know it is breaking her heart, and I miss her too. She is the only one who keeps him overnight for me occasionally!

Must be nice to have a whole night to yourself. Plus its your MIL that has Lucas you can rest in peace. I cant complain Caleb sleeps all night...but last night it really kicked me in the b___t....not being to sleep too may hours. So is it only your cousin who takes care of Lucas now? I dont mean to be nosy but I am curious...do you pay your relatives to take care of Lucas? I give my mom only $300 which she uses to go and spend it on Caleb.....She did that with Michael as well. She would spend all her money on them.

Thats cute that she spends all the money on the kids! My mil spends all her money on us and Lucas. I certainly do not think you are nosy! : ) Lucas goes to my cousin's on Tues and Fri. My grandmas on Wed. My mom on Monday. Dh or mil or now sil watches him Sat. I am off on Sun and Thur. So it is never the same. He sleeps all day when he is at my cousin's, she has some magical pixie dust or something! He doesn't sleep at all at my grandmas. He sleeps okay for my mom, she usually watches him at my house. It gets crazy! I do not pay them. The grandmas would not let me, and I have spent the last 15 yrs taking care of my cousin's two kids, so she owes me big!

you are lucky day care around here cost over $1000 a month....so I guess we are both lucky to have family.

 

Rachael mommy2lucas - January 3

I feel lucky for sure. A good daycare here goes for 550-750 a month.
