Please sleep, please sleep, please sleep. You are waking up every night, every half an hour, for an hour at a time. I am exhausted, daddy is exhausted, you are exhausted. It doesn't matter what we try, you don't sleep. You have calpol, we have tried the "crying it out" thingy, you've been in our bed, I've been in your room. You wont sleep!
I need to tell you that no matter how long you keep me awake for and no matter how many times I dream about putting you in the bathroom and jumping on a plane to Hawaii, I love you very much! This motherhood thing is getting harder and harder by the day. Saying that, it is also getting more and more rewarding by the day too!
Firstly, you can say mum! Well, mumumumumumum! Close enough for me sweetie! And the other day, you sat up by yourself! It was the most amazing thing. You went up onto all 4's and wiggled backwards until you were sitting upright. And then you gave me the biggest smile I have ever seen, and I knew that all those long nights were worth it! In fact, it made me think that perhaps you are having a growth spurt and that's why you have been up all night!
Anyway, I do hope you sleep longer at night soon monkey.
