I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Here we go again

I could blame it on the time change last weekend, but I'm starting to wonder if it's my fault. Baby Ellie has started waking up very often during the night. I went through this with her big sister and I can't go through it again! Okay...I can, but I don't want to. I'm tired and irritable and I need more sleep. Of course, I've been researching sleep issues today and I know I'm not alone. I did this same research when Maggie was about this age and I know some of the things to do.

Please pray for me and Baby Ellie...seriously. After the sermon at church today, I've decided that I should pray about this.

And a little weekend update...
Baby Ellie and The Muffin had a great time staying with Nana & Pawpaw while Big Daddy and I spent a little time away. We looked at that car, had lunch at P.anera and then went to T.arget and Old N.avy. I skipped Star.bucks...sadly. I still have shopping to do, but Muff is taken care of.
Today, we went to church, had lunch with my family and then had Cousin Callie most of the afternoon. The weather was great so we spent time outside swinging, drawing with sidewalk chalk and riding bikes/walking.
The week ahead is looking good! The Muffin & Cousin Callie will be out of school, so I'll have three girls for half of the day. On Thursday, I'll be leaving Ellie & Maggie so that I can go to my yearly Ob/Gyn appointment. I'm SO excited about that. I'll be driving to Sanford, seeing my favorite midwife Peggy and then going to the hospital to see my sweet mommy friend, A and her new baby daughter. The baby will be arriving by c-section on Tuesday or Thursday. To top it all off, I should be going to visit A with our other mommy friend K. I'm terribly excited about seeing them, but I'll miss my two girls at home.

Sleep issues and irritability....here too! Andrew is getting his molars so he's been up about 3 hours every night for almost a week. I have "lost it" with him more than once (before I figured out what's going on) and I feel like such a terrible mommy. I must pray about it and remind myself how lucky I am to have a child who wakes up and is healthy. Hope your situation gets better!!

So sorry about the sleep thing. I can relate. Caleb is 22 1/2 months, and still rarely sleeps all night. I've been sick more this year then ever, and I think it's lack of sleep. Sounds like you have a busy week ahead! Enjoy!! ((hugs to you and the girlies))

I know nothing of the sleep issues you speak of... okay I lie. I sincerely hope it gets better for you, for both your sake and Ellie's sake!
