So stinkin' tired!

I am so stinkin' tired I can't even see straight. Gabe has been getting up in the night the last couple of nights, and deciding that he doesn't need to sleep. He wants to be held, rocked and fed. And he wants all of that from mommy - no daddy for this boy. He's been staying up for around 2 hours each night. Monday night it was from 1-3, and last night from 3:45-5:45. Since I've been getting up and exercising at 6:15 that doesn't leave a lot of extra time for sleep.

On the flip side, he's been taking decent naps. He should - he's probably exhausted too! I guess I just might have to join him this afternoon.

What I'm looking forward to most is this weekend (can you hear the sarcasm?) We have a family reunion - which I am looking forward to seeing family. But we're all staying at the same place, and I can only imagine 50 people being thrilled that Gabe's screaming for those lovely 2 hours at night. I'm thinking we might have to stay somewhere else so the family can get some sleep.

Well I'm off to face the day.....

We were watching our friends baby a couple of years ago, and he was Gabe's age, and that week he decided to learn how to walk. He spent most of the night just pacing up and down his crib - no sleeping. Unfortunately he shared a room with his older brother, who kept crying "luke, lay down, i'm so tired, luke, please lay down." but he never would. But, by the end of the week he had walking down! It did involve a bit of screaming on Luke's part too, in the middle of the night, but it only lasted a few days. As soon as he learned to walk he was fine, and he's just smile and smile as he strolled up and down the crib. Maybe its some growing pains too - Blake had those when he was little. Anyway, we love you lots!
