I tried something new last night. it’s called sleep. I had had enough of Caylee being in my bed and wanting to nurse every 45 minutes to an hour. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the cosleeping IF it’s working for all individuals involved, mommy, baby and daddy. For the past two months it hasn’t been working for mommy, and Daddy hasn’t really been enjoying it either, for Caylee it was great, it was like sleeping at an all you can eat buffet.

I couldn’t really tell why she was waking up so much, I could tell she wasn’t really hungry every time she wanted to nurse, and I figured it was linked to an excess of gas stirring in her belly. Since she ate all night, we always nursed laying down, I thought maybe that was the problem, so I tried sitting up each time I nursed her last night. Not only did I do that, I put her back in her bassinet after each feeding. She never once laid in our bed last night. And I must say… it was WONDERFUL.

She still woke up 3 times in the 6.5 hours I was up there sleeping, but the sleep I got was actual sleep, it was great.

When she woke up at 6:30 she nursed then went back to sleep, but since my sleep seemed so great I decided to get up. I have been wanting to get up before everyone for weeks now. That uninterrupted time allows me to get a lot done. I read my Bible, spent time in prayer, drank some tea, loaded the dishwasher, folded clothes AND wrote a blog.

I was so proud of my blog, I uploaded pictures and everything. I was on top of things, I was writing my Meet and Greet Monday post at 7:20am!!! I was so excited that I had it done. It has been ages since I participated in a Meet and Greet Monday carnival.

I was very disappointed when I realized today was Thursday. Maybe I’m not as on top of things as I thought I was…..
