I am especially thankful for a short work week after a not so very restful night… or rather several nights. We’re adjusting things and hoping that Enzo will not keep fighting bedtime and will also not keep waking up in the middle of the night, but in the meantime, Phoebe has also decided not to sleep through the night. We’ve all been a bit fussy due to lack of sleep. Remember moments like this? I do… I do.
Last night it started with an earlier bedtime for Enzo, however it was still an hour later before he finally stayed put in bed. We think his clock may be too bright now… go figure. However, he still woke up at midnight, so I stumbled into his room and ended up laying down with him, only to wake up at 2:00am because I could hear Phoebe squirming and fussing in her crib. Josh was blissfully sleeping, despite the monitor by his head, so I found her pacifier and crawled back into our bed. Around 3:00, though, Phoebe was standing up in her crib and fussing. I may have swatted Josh a few times and told him it was his turn to get up. Baby girl was wide awake, though. Josh changed her and she continued to stay wide awake in our bed rolling around, crawling on top of us.
Then at around 4:00, I heard Enzo again… he was back and whining at the gate in his doorway. Up I got, and talked Enzo into crawling back into bed by agreeing to lay down with him again. He put his hand on my arm this time – probably trying to make sure I wouldn’t get up again. He fell asleep, though, and aroudn 4:30 I headed back to our bed… only to find Baby Girl had completely taken over my side of the bed. I gave up and made Josh give up part of his half and managed to close my eyes for half an hour before it was time to get up. All this to say… I’m tired and really looking forward to a short week even though it won’t mean sleeping in like it would have in the past. Ha ha. Maybe we can convince the kiddos to sleep until 6:00 or 7:00 if we’re lucky. 😉
Fat Chance 🙂
Oy to sleepless nights. Hopefully the kids give you a little break over the holiday!!
