I am so completely exhausted! I can hardly function. I can hardly sit in this chair upright. Not only have I had a couple busy weeks with lots going on but Sam’s sleeping habits have been terrible. It’s really my fault. I’ve been inconsistent. I’ve been running here and there catching naps only when they are convenient. We’ve been having many late nights. And it’s resulted in him waking up several time a night. Sometimes 4 times. His napping has been terrible too. Super short.
It’s not enough sleep. For me or him. He’s unhappy. I’m unhappy.
Right now he crying in his bed because some little toddler ran past his room in a delightful scream and woke him up. I want to cry. I don’t want to get him. It’s so sad. He’s such a darling little thing.
I know what I need to do. Routine. Have a regular bed time, regular nap time, and scheduled meals. I am just not that type of person. But I can try. I can do better than what’s been going on around here.
Sigh. 4 kids is
killing me such a joy and a delight.
On a positive note, this darling baby boy has quite the appetite and is looking at my dinner plate like he wants to devour the entire thing. Yes, he is hungry. Did you see his cute 2 teeth in the pic above? They’ve been in for a month or so now. He isn’t even 6 months yet.
He is also beginning to sit. This is when I start to enjoy these babies much more. So cute and rolly polly. I love it when they can sit and play with a toy for a few minutes.
So tell me, have you been successful at sleep training your babies? Do you let them cry it out? Do you lovingly rock them to sleep? Nurse to sleep? There are so many different ways. How do you fit soccer, ballet and carpooling into nap time? Do you stick to routine or fly by the seat of your pants like me?
