On sleep deprivation and sick babies


I'll be the first to admit, I was smug.  When peanut started sleeping 7 - 9 hour straight a night at around 2 months, I was whoa smug.  And in the great way that Kama works, here I am back at work with a baby that doesn't sleep through the night anymore.  It's the perfect storm really.  Between the fact that we decided to not only move him out of his bassinet into a crib, but also out of our room, as well as start him in daycare and finish weaning in the same week, I think we set ourselves up for failure.  Rookie mistake.  And just when he was getting settled into his new little routine and feeling all comfy in his big crib, peanut got a cold.  (And for the record, sick babies are really pitifully cute.  Poor guy.)  But I guess that how babies work, right when you figure them out, something new pops up. 

And even when you are waking up in the middle of the night and have a face like this to look at....
I guess the sleep deprivation isn't that bad afterall.

  1. What a cutie pie! My baby is almost 10 months old and a very wise mommy friend told me a while ago that just when it feels like you can't handle *it* anymore (whatever the *it* is that day/week), things will change and the baby will be on to something new- so hang in there!! I hope that helps you as much as it helped me :)
