Long Night

So, last night was a long night. Someone didn't want to sleep, which really sucked. I tried to put him down, then hung out with him until 11:30. P took the 11:30 to 1 shift. I then nursed again and was up with him until 2:45, at which point he finally fell asleep. He the got up to eat again at 6ish and wouldn't go back to sleep. He napped a little in the morning, but I was trying to get a couple of things done around the house. When I was done, so was he (with napping, that is), so we did tummy time, played on the playmat, and read a story. He then ate again, and then we went to run errands, which, of course, he slept through. Sometimes I think he knows that we're doing something that I can't sleep through (like church or shopping or walking the dog) so he decides that would be a perfect time for him to sleep. I hope he sleeps more tonight!

As a note, I no longer function well on 4-4.5 hours of sleep. But he's so sweet, it's impossible to be upset.

Is it wrong to use a photo of your child sleeping for a birth announcement? Because I really want to use this one. How could anyone not be completely head-over-heels for this guy?

That is precious, most little ones sleep a lot so that would be a cute pictures!

Neither of my girls ever slept through the night. They didnt' start until my youngest was in pre-school. Really sucked!

I love that picture and most of the birth announcements I get are of sleeping children.

It would be hard to be upset at that...although I am not looking forward to sleepless nights!
