Sleeping Like A Baby My Butt...

Who started this phrase anyway??

Because apparently they haven't met or heard about my fourth child. Baby M. I would never say I want to sleep like her. More like NOT sleep like her.

She is 13 weeks old and not really a sound sleeper. It's odd. I can vacuum in the room right beside her crib and it not even make her flinch. BUT someone can whisper across the house in a room with the door shut and it will wake her up!!!!

THAT IS JUST WRONG!!! WRONG!! WRONG!

For me to actually be able to do things around the house instead of sit on the couch/bed and hold her as she sleeps I have to use my wrap. She will just sleep in that. I sometimes wish I could do something like that. All snuggled up to my mamaw asleep as she rubs my back. Now that would be a good nights sleep for sure.

Baby M fell asleep in the swing for the first time this past week. I thought, "THIS IS HEAVEN!".

Sooo, for me, instead of saying, "I wish I could sleep like a baby".

I will say, "I wish I could sleep like a man after a Thanksgiving meal." Or any meal at that on a Sunday. :)

BTW, I came up with this post after reading another blog about the same topic. I am sorry but I forgot where I read it. Please if you are a reader of my blog yell at me and I will give you due credit for this post of mine! :)

Here is a picture of Lil O WITHOUT her paci sound asleep.

Last night was really hard for us. My HB said he was about to go to Walgreen's and buy her a new paci. She would tell us, "I miss my paci". "Please give it back." "I miss sucking it." Add lots of tears and crying--it broke our heart.

I know today will be better for her.

Awww. . . You're having all kinds of sleep issues, aren't you? I'm sorry. You know I can relate because it was my blog you were so kind to visit! That picture of your baby in the swing is an all too familiar one! Wish I had a wrap. I have a snuggli, but I feel too constricted to do anything with it on! It won't be long before we miss these baby days - let's cherish them.
