five hours?

so it’s 4:39 a.m. on sunday morning. i just fed davey (a bottle) and i’m HOPING he’s falling asleep. i’m up pumping and thought that i would just pop on to say a few words. i’m SO THANKFUL that my kid is pretty flexible. his day-time schedule gets "messed up" so often and yet he’s still pretty understanding and well-behaved. i LOVE my little guy. davey and i fell asleep while he was nursing as dave and i watched a movie. about 30 minutes later i woke up and thought "uh oh – this might be bad for having him get a good night’s sleep tonight" but he’s doing okay. he went down (in his crib) around midnight. he was pretty fussy and dave had to go back in and hold him for awhile. then it was about 1:40 a.m. so i held him for a little bit and then put him in his carseat in his crib and he was out like a light until 3:45 when he finally got some more food. that means he went 5 hours again from the start of one feed to the start of the next…. two nights in a row.


and my little boy is getting a double chin. yep. my wee one. so cute. i love that he’s filling out. now i’ve just gotta make sure to get him into all of his preemie and newborn clothing AT LEAST ONCE before he outgrows it all! i definitely have my favorite outfits that he wears over and over and over and over again. (speaking of favorites – we tried on the denim jacket today…. still a little too large).

uh oh. i think i hear some rumblings from the nursery. gotta go and get him sleeping!

we’re skipping sunday school – so very tired today.
davey was asleep when i was done with this post so off to bed i went. but then the freakin’ neighborhood cats who roam free got in a hissing, pissy fight (likely on our deck – at least it sounded like it) and woke us ALL up at 5:45 a.m. – including davey. doesn’t help that the cats get the dogs barking, too. so i tried to calm him down and put him back in his crib, but at 6:30 the neighborhood dogs started barking so i finally had to bring davey to bed with us just so he would sleep awhile… i was too tired to sit up and hold him until he was ready to go down. and i was too tired to listen to him cry.

  1. There is nothing wrong with bringing the little man to bed with you here and there so you can all get some much needed z’s. I always said I would never let Markus sleep in our bed… ha! Especially after that early morning feeding (between 5-6) he would often come back to bed and snuggle with me or Mark. After about 6 months we quit bringing him to bed with us, and now he won’t sleep with us for anything. And there is a big part fo me that often wishes that he would sometimes. Not for sleep’s sake, but just because there is nothing l snuggling with a sleepy baby to warm a heart!

  2. Yep, enjoy the cuddly in bed moments. Noah slept in our bed for a while and then hit a point where he wanted nothing to do with our bed. They grow up way too fast!
