On the Flip Side

Maybe Piper heard my cries that I needed sleep and needed it bad. A month of not really sleeping was finally getting the best of me. EZ told me he didn't know how I was functioning. Here are the last two nights:

Sunday night:
Feed at 8:15 down to sleep at 9.

Up at 11:30pm to feed, down by midnight.

EZ fed her at 2:20

I was up with her at 4:45am (so I got a continuous stretch of almost 5 hours). I was in heaven.

But then last night was just strange:
Fed her at 8:15-9pm but she struggled to go down to sleep. Finally asleep at 9:20.

At 1:45am I woke up EZ...she was still sleeping, it had been 4 1/2 hours and more almost 5 since she ate. This was a new record. Should I wake her up??? EZ said you might as well and feed her since you are awake. So I woke her up and fed her and changed her and pumped and was back in bed by 2:30am

She slept till 5:50am on the second go around, another almost 4 hours. EZ got up to feed her then. I slept until 6:35 and noticed he wasn't back in bed. He was just sitting with her since she didn't want to go back to sleep.

This was unbelievable. From the time I went to bed at 9:45 until practically 6am I only had to get up once. My goodness I feel like a million dollars today. If this trend continues I will definitely no longer just be in survivor mode!

Then we went for a hot and humid walk to try and get her tired, ate some more and snuggled in bed and napped some (even me). She likes to get crazy in her sleep:

Funny - look at our blog from when Amelia was a month old. Same story of random 5 hour block of sleep :)

Good job momma! Just wait till you start getting the 6-8 hour stretches!

Getting decent sleep is like a miracle pill. Everything gets easier.
