6:00pm -- Adalyn goes down for what will probably be a 45 minute nap before her "bedtime". This is just one of the MANY 45 minute naps she has had through out the day. Meaning that I spend A LOT of time feeding her and putting her back to sleep.
6:10pm -- Shane goes down for a ridiculously early bedtime because he isn't napping, woke up super early and was crabby and tired all day long.
6:15pm -- Kenny leaves for a evening meeting.
6:45pm -- Addie wakes up from her nap. I get her in her PJ's and ready for bed.
7:15pm -- She is back to bed, hopefully for the night?! If I am lucky she will be asleep for 4 whole hours. If I don't go to bed right now I end up missing out on sleep I could be getting.
8:20pm -- I finally wonder into bed myself.
9:23pm -- I wake up hearing Kenny come home.
10:20pm -- I wake up hearing Kenny come to bed.
11:36pm -- Baby is awake. She eats 4 ounces and I pray that means she'll be down for another 4 hours! I head back to bed to try to get warm and comfortable, and to calm my mind to attempt to go back to sleep yet again. I usually lay awake for a good 15 minutes just listening for the baby.
12:10am-- I have just about fallen asleep, when I hear Shane running out of his room. He is scared. I carry him back to bed.
12:15am -- Baby is aroused by hearing Shane's voice. I give her the pacifier back and hope that is enough for now.
12:50am -- Shane is back up. He needs to go to the bathroom.
1:23am -- I have finally once again settled into bed and Adalyn wakes up. It's been 2 hours typical for her after her long 4 hour stretch. She is up for 1 whole hour this time and is very difficult to get back to sleep. I am now hungry and my mind is completely awake.
2:47am -- Once again I am settled into bed and Shane is up again in our room saying something about how he still has his PJ's on. I get him quieted back into bed for the third time!!!
3:30am -- Baby is making noises so I go and check on her. She appears to still be sleeping....unlike myself.
4:34am -- Baby is awake. Another two hour stretch. I kick Kenny and ask him to PLEASE feed the baby this time and to try and not wake up the other child who has been up 3 times tonight. I hear her crying on and off as Kenny tries to deal with her. I hear it took about 45 minutes to get her back to sleep.
7:15am -- At some point I fell asleep. I am woken up when Kenny comes in with Adalyn in his arms. Morning has arrived. A new day begins even if all you want to do is stay in bed and sleep all day long.
7:20am -- Shane is up for the day as well.
Not all nights are quite this bad. I can't say they are a lot better though. Shane usually stays in his bed. He just had a rough night of being scared for some reason. Probably the super early bedtime has something to do with it.
