You guys, the baby still doesn’t sleep. He will be 10 months next week and he is still up every 1-3 hours, all night, every night. I’m haggard.
I think about blogging several times per day. I miss it. I have lots to share with you around the house, too. I’ve never shared Ben’s room, Nate’s big boy room, our bedroom and bathroom are almost finished and so is the kid’s bath. This weekend we are getting new carpet in the basement, we have new furniture down there I’ve not shared. Then there is the playroom. Basically, what I’m saying is I may not be sleeping but my house doesn’t show it. I have no idea how I’ve accomplished a damn thing to tell you the truth but I guess having projects help the time pass until I can lie down. I miss my bed, I miss sleeping in it. I spend most of the night in a rocking chair.
I’m trying to fix the baby. crying it out isn’t working for our situation. I did it with Nate when I took his paci away at 18 months but that was just at the initial put-down, it wasnt all night long. Ben’s issue is all night long. I just can’t force myself to watch the clock and go in at 5 min 10 min 20 min in the middle of the night when I can just pop a boob in the kids mouth and he’s out in 15. I just ordered the no cry sleep solution per my ped’s suggestion and a friend said she had great luck with the baby whisperer. something’s got to give. I need sleep.
My in-laws arrive this weekend and after that I think we are in the clear for a while with guests. I hope to be writing more regularly. Even if it’s just to talk about how tired I am because sometimes just writing about it can make me feel a little bit better.
