Baby Please Go to Sleep

That's what I sobbed quietly in the extra bed in baby N's room last night when he woke up at:

12:00
12:30
1:00
1:30
2:30
3:30
4:30
5:00

Woke up crying of course. Usually all it takes to get him back to sleep is to turn on his music and rub his belly a little. Not last night though. I held firm and did not pick him up. He already has armitis, and I surely don't need him to think he can be held all night too.

People warn you about sleep deprivation when you have a baby, but you never REALLY believe them until you have your own.

    I am so sorry!! I know exactly what that feels like and it's not fun at all. All I can say is, he's not made of glass; if you need to, let him cry in his crib while you go to a different room and calm down. There was a time when I wanted to punch my husband out of the bed for sleeping through it all when I was curled up crying. Something that I'm going to start implementing in my house that you might want to try. Next time The Kid is doing one of his alnighters, I'm going to arm myself and just talk to God. I figure, if I can't get The Kid to sleep, I can at least grow closer to God. Will be praying for you
