for the last 5 nights, the mini has been going to sleep at 8pm and not waking up till 4 or 5 in the morning to eat. before, she wasn't doing that except on the days she got her vaccinations. i don't know if it's the rice cereal that we started giving her (she'll eat it, but seems kind of indifferent to the taste. i think she wants french fries.) or if she's just growing up, but it's nice.
problem is, the husband has also adjusted his sleeping schedule and goes to bed shortly after the mini does, leaving me awake. i usually use the time to fill orders and clean up, but tonight i was even MORE revved up and found myself scrubbing the hardwood floors on my hands and knees. the latest issue of "parenting" magazine suggested that you stop "working" at a certain time and enjoy something that you can't do while your little ones are up... but i don't think that they meant using your hands as a swiffer.
when i do fall asleep, i sometimes awaken thinking that i've heard the mini cry, but when i go to check on her, she isn't even awake. then i have to get up around 2 or 3 am to pump since she isn't going to get up for another couple of hours to eat. so now i'm not sleeping through the night!
i know one day i'll look back on these days and miss them. but right now i'll just settle for one night of 10 hours of sleep!!!! at least the baby's well rested!!!
p.s. they found out what is wrong with my laptop. the hard drive is fried. great.
