Sleepless Nights

I'm so tired. This adorable little guy is going through some kind of sleep regression, and it's wiping me out.

He's fighting nap time. We are still rocking him to sleep for naps and bedtime. So he will scream and scream and scream, even though he's tired. But he doesn't really try to get away, just more like screaming, hey, I don't want to do this. Then he gives in and sleeps. He'll be dead asleep in my arms. I'l carry him to his bed and the second I lay him down, he wakes up and is screaming and doesn't go back to sleep, unless it's in my arms. 

Bed time is a little different. Conrad rocks him to sleep and Austin doesn't fuss very much with Conrad. Conrad will lay him down and a few nights he's done the same thing that he does at nap time, wake up as soon as his head hits the bed. 

He's also waking in the middle of the night. Screaming. It takes him hours to fall back asleep and I'm not able to again lay him down. So he's ended up in bed with us. This kid likes to move in his sleep, oh my goodness! He ends up horizontal in bed. He likes to steal my pillow and kick off covers. 

So you would think that somethings wrong with his bed right? We've checked about a million times. We've even added some cushion to his bed to see if that helps. I started slathering him with a lavender night time lotion after his bath hoping that will help. It seems to be hit and miss. Maybe it's a growth spurt or teething, or both. 


So if you see me this week and I look like a zombie, you know why. I'm dead tired. 

Send coffee.
