Great Big Yawns

lindsey's visit may 10 by you.

This is how we have been feeling these past few days. I posted a picture of Henry and not myself because sleep deprived Henry is so much cuter than sleep deprived Allie. Since he has been sleeping in his own room (a change we made to encourage longer chunks of sleep at night) he's been up every hour/hour and a half (go figure). We are trying to sleep train him as well as cut out a few of the night feedings that have recently become more southern comfort food for him than anything. Throw in the fact that he's hardly even napped in his own room let alone spent the night there all alone and you have a baby waking up all. the. time. thinking where the H am I and what is going on?!

Lately he's been jumping and twitching in his sleep, like he's in the middle of some awful dream. I contribute this to all of the recent sleep changes we've made (I've also been having crazy dreams) and figure that some of these baby sized nightmares must be part of what's waking him up so frequently.

But what unpleasant things could babies possibly even dream about? As I nursed him back to sleep last night I thought about this and could really only come up with a small amount of things. I've listed them below (in super creepy font for the full effect):

blank by you.
I keep waiting for the night when he finally lets me get a good amount of sleep. Last night he slept six hours for the first time in forrr-ev-errr but I'm not counting on getting that lucky again.

Any night now Henry, okay? I'm soooo ready to sleep as soon as you decide to let me!

He will get used to it. It may take a while but he will. We are planning to put the twins upstairs with Hudson tonight for the first time. I'm kinda scared shitless but it's Friday so I figure we can be lazy al day tomorrow if we get no sleep.

Thanks Courtney and Paige!

EB: Good luck! I'm sure they will do great :) We started sleeping H in his own room on a weekend night for the same exact reason...we ended up sleeping so much om Sunday!

poor little guy. those are all of my baby's least favorite things, too. except, add car seat to the list. and taking off his clothes...

allie said...

Oooooh, the car seat! Yes! Henry definitely hates this one too...

Allegra said...

very cute list! also, if all else fails with Henry and the sleeping, you could try The Sleepeasy Solution (www.sleepyplanet.com). It worked beautifully for us.

xoxo,
