Send sleep!

Sorry to not post for so long!  Not much here to say other than talking about sleep regressions (baby) and lack of sleep (mommy).  I have been cutting my to do list daily to try to get to sleep earlier.  So homemade food for baby, but piecing things together for me.  Some food shopping, but no Trader Joes.  Post Office cut.  Some messages I should send wait.  It goes on.

I hear (from the world of internet moms) that a sleep regression is normal right now.  We have a baby who pulls herself up and can sit back down but forgets that part a lot.  Hopefully as she builds confidence, she can stand up and look around…and then sit back down and sleep.  Right now she gets stuck up and it upsets her.  I think there’s also some teething happening…still no teeth yet!

It’s amazing how quickly I got used to sleeping all night (or one wake up).  We did this from about 4-7 months old, so I’ve been getting decent sleep for a little over 2 months.  And it was lovely.  But we’ll get through this and I get extra baby time at night for now.  Things will slide, but this is how life goes!

How is your sleep?  Is there someone keeping you up at night?

Not a review…yet

I had all intentions of writing a review of Les Mills Pump this weekend but it hasn’t happened.  I could rush one out now just to do it, but I really like the program and want to tell why.  I want to write about each video and give it the focus it is worth.

But life got in the way, mostly in the way of a not sleeping baby.  She wakes up every 3 hours most nights, but last night was every two.  She’s taking longer to fall asleep.  A lot of the time I’m up is restful for her as I hold her until I think she’ll go down.  And she has taken a good nap both today and yesterday.  So tonight, instead of writing all about the workouts, I still had bottles to make, breastmilk to freeze, laundry to start/move to dryer…and a screaming baby.

So now, after a busy day of playing, hot yoga, a birthday party, and more playing, I’m going to sleep.  I will say that my first time back at hot yoga went better than expected.  I never felt the need to bolt out of the room and was able to do all of the postures in some form.  I’m so glad I finally made it to a class!
