sleep troubles.

Another beautiful day in Virginia.

Okay, so I'm working on Wyatt sleeping in his own bed. It's really difficult... mostly for me. I think I'm the only one with the REAL problem. Although, Wyatt does want to wake up every hour or so lately, but I quickly nurse him back to la la land. I'm not sure if he's really "eating" as more he's just soothing. So we'll see how many times I have to get up tonight. I have to admit I usually have no idea how many times I get up because I'm usually hazed over with sleep. But I'm going to go into this with realistic expectations. I WILL GET UP SEVERAL TIMES TONIGHT. There, I said it. I really do believe it will be better for both of us in the long run. I love holding my baby all night, but I never really feel rested because my back is always aching from holding him in a weird position... or maybe I might wake him up from moving around... or he simply gets all sweaty from having his head lay on the skin of my arm. So, I will do this. But why am I so nervous and reluctant?

Wyatt is doing much better with naps though. He seems to take a quick 45 minute nap every 2-3 hours. And of course he sleeps in the car like a dream. I have often just sat in the car playing with my phone so as to not disturb this precious baby.
