You Are Getting Sleepy.....Sleepy....Sleepy

It just occurred to me that I have not slept straight through the night in well over a year.

It is all her fault!!!

First it was the pregnancy and having to go to the bathroom all night.  Then it was living in the apartment and sleeping on my little foam pad on the living room floor.  But I have been sleeping in a real bed now for about a year, the same amount of time she has been living outside my uterus.

I will admit that it is partly my fault.  Usually, by now, I would have gotten fed up with the constant desire to nurse and be held by mom in the middle of the night and used the "tough love" approach and let her cry it out.  But, I am old now and she is my 6th and probably last baby - much as this old lady wants sleep, I just can't seem to make myself!

I know I will have to force myself to do it....soon....before she is spoiled....or is it too late already?  I don't know. 

I do know that I need sleep.

And I would prefer it in a bed...not on the floor.....

Hey, wait a minute....maybe I should put HER to bed on the seems to work wonders!  Maybe she is still remembering our apartment months....I know my back still remembers those months.

What a perfect little angel. May you BOTH sleep sweetly tonight.

Those pics are so cute! I still wish my babies would fall asleep on the floor once in awhile! I'm having issues sleeping, too, but it's because of L. and Charley! Makes me grumpy during the day...

I am a really light sleeper...if my dog just walks around, the sound of his collar and nails on the hardwood are the enough to wake me up. I can't even imagine babies. I'd be such a grump!

But...then again...she is the baby. And the baby should be spoiled. It's just sleep, pamper that precious little girl!
