Our kids are not good sleepers. They are definitely not horrible sleepers either though. They are both very light sleepers…which they probably get from me…definitely not from Lance who can sleep through a tornado.
If one kid wakes up crying (specifically Reese) then it wakes the other kid up. Last night I had to get up FIVE times…yes, five!
And Sam just doesn’t want to start sleeping more. The longest he is going at night is six hours. I can’t wait until I am getting more sleep. He definitely tricked me early on. In mid-January he was sleeping around eight hours at a time. What happened to those days?
Reese has been waking up at night to go to the bathroom and then wants to get in our bed. While it is fabulous that she is not wetting her pull-up and is waking up dry, it is very frustrating to be woken up unnecessarily. Last night I was able to get her to stay in her bed by laying down with her until she fell back asleep.
On top of not sleeping at night, Reese has given up sleeping during her afternoon nap. Luckily she stays in her room (and most of the time in her bed) during her naptime. And usually I can have some quiet time because I can get Sam to nap during that time too.
Switching topics…Sam ate ALL of his cereal today. He is such a big boy!! I really can’t believe that we are already doing solids with him. Time has gone by so fast.
