Ramblings from a sleep deprived Mommy...


Well it seems as though Lindsay is coming out of her sweet little sleeping all the time stage... The last few nights she has been keeping Mommy awake until about 1:30 or so.... Then she wakes up at around 4 in the morning again...
So here is a play by play of our night last night at bedtime. Rick and I and Lindsay head to bed around 10:30. I decided to nurse her in my bed before I put her in her bassinet. (Rick is already asleep) She then throws up all over me and herself.... So we get up and bath her, then I get her dressed for bed again and get her to sleep in her bassinet. (By this time it is 11:30) And I fall fast asleep! 11:55 I wake to screaming... I tried to cuddle and comfort her and rock her and even nurse her while we in the bedroom to no avail....
Needless to say by this time I was fairly irritated. And I give up and come out to the living room, I get to the living room and flip on the light and look down only to see the biggest grin on her face ever!!!
Of course how can I stay irritated after that. Well her smile didnt last long. She then screamed for the next hour and a half!!! I finally got her to sleep and back in her bassinet and it lasted another 20 min. I gave up and just laid her in bed with me. She sleeps just fine if she is sleeping right next to me... But I am so scared I am going to roll over on her. What can I say she has a way of getting what she wants...
It wouldnt be as big of a problem for me if she just stayed awake at night. But it kills me when she lets me fall asleep for 20-30 min. and then wakes me up. I think she knows it too. :)

Oh, I am so sorry! That is so hard, and I wished I lived closer so I could take her for a few hours....or days...and let you sleep! I hope she's not getting sick or something! Good luck, and know we're thinking of you!

Ok so now that I am feeling a little less sleep deprived I read back over this last blog I wrote and thought wow what a whiner! So I feel it necessary to say how much fun it s been to have a newborn in the house again, every little diaper that needs changing..(remember they arent really stinky yet...so I am not that crazy) every little smile, every bath, every coo, every feeding, I love it all!!!!

Awwww! SHe is so cute and cuddly. I too, wish I could take her for a few hours or days. All I hear is blah, blah, blah about the no sleep because she is so sweet and adorable that nothing else matters. No seriously, I hope things are better now and she starts letting you get some sleep, so you can enjoy her. I miss you guys.
