Sleeping Like A Baby…. STILL.

When Christopher and Em were newborns, I remember thinking “this won’t last forever, soon they’ll sleep through the night…” I eagerly clung to the bright future of uninterrupted sleep. Well, here is what the last two nights have been like…

Sunday, 11:45 pm: I heard Emmy chatting with someone. I went to check on her, she was just sleep talking.

Middle of the night, 12:30 a.m: “Daddy? Where’s my headband? I need my hair bow.” I walk out and find Emmy sleepwalking in circles and looking for her sparkly headband. I put it on, tucked her into bed, went back to sleep.

3 a.m: Emmy climbs into bed with me, I am too tired to move her out, so I pretend I don’t notice.

3:47 a.m: kick, kick, kick. Dang it, I should have moved her back to her bed.

5 a.m: I hear Christopher’s voice… “Mommy, I just throwed up in my bed.”

6 a.m: My alarm goes off for the day.

Last night was fairly similar…

11:30 p.m: I hear little boy wailing. I run to his bed, assuming he is about to throw up again. Nope it was nothing, he was still asleep.

12:30 a.m: A blanket was lost and rediscovered.

4:30 a.m: Christopher’s voice again… “Mommy, what time is it?” He was sleep talking, so I didn’t answer.

5:15 a.m: Emmy remembered the night before when I didn’t move her and slept walked right back to my bed.

6 a.m: Alarm.

No wonder I’m ready for bed by 9 p.m every night!

Sleeping like a baby...

Sleeping like a baby…

So peaceful...

So peaceful…

Sometimes, when they sleep, I think they look so sweet and cute - I have to keep myself from waking them up and covering them with kisses...

    It’s amazing how much bed those little bodies can occupy and just how little sleep is available to the bigger body in bed with them.

    Oh my, a child’s world of sleep is so mysterious. I love these cuties. What a mixed blessing when they want to share a bed with us.
