Mom-1 Mason-1

The game is tied. Mason may be mysteriously waking up during the night like he is 3 freaking weeks old again, but I am ruling the daytime nap game. For the past couple days (knock on wood) I have been getting the kid down in 2 minutes flat thanks to my 'oh you're getting sleepy' sixth sense. Of course he pays me back by fighting ruthlessly when it is his last nap of the day or in the middle of the night when his once-a-night-3am feeding has turned into (on Sunday night) 12am, 2am, 5am, up for the day at 6:30am. Or last night: 2:30am, 6am then back down until 8:15am. Seriously, child. WTF are you doing?

I am hoping that the two wakings last night versus the 3 the night before means that he is getting back on schedule. Like, tonight he will be back to his once-a-night feeding. But honestly, he weighs over 12 freaking pounds, you would think the kid has enough fat stores in his cheeks to get him through the night. Obviously not. The only things I can come up with at this point is that he is hitting his 3 month growth spurt a week early, or spending the night at grandma's on Saturday (OF COURSE he slept like an angel) royally f'd him up for a couple days. OR he is getting another cold, but I doubt it because there are no other signs.

This is how I spend my days: Analyzing why HIS HIGHNESS will not a.) go to sleep or b.) stay asleep. Everything else is fine and dandy.

Oh...this sounds waaaay too familiar! Stink was a frequent night waker, nursing every 2 hours and then some. He was also a terrible napper. He slept--just not when I wanted him to. He was always (and still is) at the 98% for height and weight, so it didn't effect his growing....just totally frustrating! It is great that you are able to have him on any kind of schedule--I didn't know that term until Stink was 6 months old!

OHHHHH TIffffff....yowzers! Well, for not getting much beauty sleep at night I do have to say you are quite beautiful!!! Maybe if Mason read the book himself he'd understand what he needs to do. Hmmm...
