No Sleep

Wednesday night was a rough night. I had worked at Children's that day and I had to work at Baptist on Thursday. So Makenna and I went to bed early. She woke up about 12:30 screaming and crying. DJ brought her to me and I nursed her but when he tried to lay her back down she went crazy. She cried and cried so he brought her back to me. I laid her in bed with me and she wiggled around but then almost fell asleep. So I asked DJ if he could take her back to bed. As soon as he laid her down she started to cry again. So we let her cry for a little while but then she just got more hysterical so DJ brought her to bed and laid her down with him. She laid that way for a while and then made her way to the middle of the bed. She wiggled and wiggled and wiggled. DJ can sleep through this kind of thing but I can't. So, needless to say I wasn't getting any sleep. After a few hours she finally fell asleep, just in time for me to get up to get ready for work. So needless to say I was a walking zombie on Thursday. Of course when I left for work at 6:00 DJ and Makenna were sound asleep in the bed together. Figures!! Well, thankfully I had wonderful patients on Thursday and had a good day at work. I'm still tired today. It has been a while since I have had to go on a few hours sleep. I forgot how hard it can be!

Nash has been doing the same thing for a while. I finally let him cry for a little while and go back in to rock him and do the process over and over again. It was tiring at first but I think it paid off because lately he has been doing much better. I hated doing it but he was so reliant on coming to bed with us and then I was not sleeping good. Now if he does wake up he will go back to sleep on his own.
