it’s a new phase

dear world,

since baby N got sick a couple weeks ago, she’s been waking in the night every two hours to eat. on really bad nights, she woke up about every 45 minutes. i don’t know if she just needed to snuggle or if she was going through a growth spurt, but goodness it is exhausting!

i feel like i spent two weeks in a fog. i felt so tired by the end of the day that i couldn’t focus at work. i snapped at V. (not without cause, but usually i try to be a little more patient.) i felt so tired i could just cry. anytime, for no reason.

then, finally, last night she slept! not through the whole night, but she woke up at 10:30pm, 1:30am and 4am then slept until 7:15am. so awesome. i am like a much nicer and more alert version of myself. it’s amazing what a little bit of sleep in a row can do for a person.

here’s hoping this new phase lasts,


ps- we also decided to add rice cereal to her diet to hopefully fill her up more. we tried around 4 months and she had no interest in it. yesterday she actually ate some. and she ate some at school today, too. i’m hoping she’s getting the hang of it and that will help her sleep longer, too.
