Sleep is one of those things that as soon as you don't get enough you can tell. They say that having a baby means goodbye to sleep. Which don't get me wrong I don't sleep nearly as long or as heavy as I used too. Fortunately, we have been so lucky, and I say lucky because I didn't really do anything I don't believe, to have a baby that sleeps through the night. She has been doing so since I went back to work.

One gets used to getting a full nights sleep. For the most part, I feel rested and ready to tackle the day. Today though, is not that day. Little miss woke up 3 times last night. Yes 3 times! All 3 times I woke up to screaming from her room. Which I may have forgot to add that we moved her from our room to her room and she has been sleeping in her crib for over a week with no issues. Talk about jumping out of bed. I half expected to find a mess, either wet or poop but nope just a baby not happy with life. I changed her and put her back down and I fell back asleep too. Not even a half an hour later the same scream but sweet Matt got up to check. Then came the third and I'm pretty sure I almost fell into the door tripping over the dog because my eyes just wouldn't open. 

When we finally woke her up she was all happy and smiling. At least one of us was smiling! So I applaud you mama's who do have to get up during the night because I am dragging today.


  1. I remember those days! I honestly don't miss them though :)

  2. The best sight in the world is a just awake smiley baby. I love it. You can definitely tell when you don't get sleep. My daughter sleeps through the night most of the time but those nights when she doesn't, don't talk to me. I think the every half hour is even harder because just when you're relaxed & falling back asleep you have to get up. Makes it even worse when they are in their own room because of the walk. Bleh! Hopefully all are sleeping better again.
