Did I call it or what? That was the longest night since we came home from the hospital (Night 2 of his life at the hospital was very long also). By long, I mean I no sleep. Though last night was long, it was not filled with wailing and too much unpleasantness. Mostly Maddox was just awake and refusing to go to sleep. Then I’d finally convince him to fall asleep and place him in his bassinet – then poof, awake again. Or he’d stay asleep in his bassinet for 20 min then wake up. Eventually (about 6 am), I decided screw that and let him just sleep on my chest. This waywe both could get a little rest. That lasted about 45 minutes, and then it was officially morning.
Basically during the night Dallas and I would both wake up. Dallas would change a diaper, I would prepare a bottle of lovingly pumped breast milk, Dallas would feed the baby, I would pump more milk, Dallas would go to bed, I would convince the baby to fall asleep, then I would wash all the bottles and nipples etc for the next round, climb into bed for 20 minutes and we’d do it all again. Surprisingly I’m doing okay today. I’m tired, but I can manage. I must be running on adrenaline or hormones or something. I’ll probably crash in a few hours – and either fall apart or fall asleep.
I’m hoping all this nonsense was just a result of the vaccinations and life will go back to normal soon.
