Pleading With the Baby Sleep Gods

Please... Just SLEEP

She is adorable right?

Sitting there in her crib, playing with her toys when she really should be sleeping.

Which is becoming a common occurrence these days. She doesn’t care for sleeping, especially when she has to wear her helmet to bed.

Hell, I wouldn’t want to sleep with that thing on my head either.  Would you?

But at almost nine months old I could really use a good eight hours straight with no interruptions.  Unfortunately for me I am up with Addison at least two or three times a night.

She gets up to nurse, and typically goes back to sleep but I am just at my sleepless wits end.

I am short with the older kids.
I am nursing headaches on a daily basis.
I am cranky.

I just want some sleep… that is all.
Even if it was just one night… one full night of sleep.

Is there some kind of strange magical spell I can put on her for the night, or something I can sacrifice to the sleep gods to actually get her to let me have just one full night… just one!

Please… I will do anything!

Sadly I know it is going to be a while before I get that full night of sleep. My middle son didn’t sleep through the night till he was fifteen months old. Yup a one before a five!

Why can’t all kids be like my oldest? Sleeping through the night at four months old. I guess he spoiled me and turned me into one of those smug parents who brags about their sleeping baby. Now I got payback times two!

Moms!

How do you do it?
When did your baby sleep through the night?
