Running on fumes

I am pretty sure I have had a grand total of 5.5 hours of sleep in the past 48 hours.

Elliott started sleeping through the night two nights ago which is awesome. I have not yet enjoyed the benefits, however, because Jackson is not feeling well. Last night was the worst so far. I went to bed just before midnight and woke up to him crying at 1:30am. He fell asleep in my lap around 2:15am, snuck him back into his crib, fell back to sleep, and woke up to him crying at 3:15am. Got back up with him but he was already wise to me trying to get him to sleep so he would jerk himself awake every ten minutes or so. I lasted until 5am at which point I took him upstairs and put him in bed with Pete. Crashed out again and woke up to Elliott needing a bottle at 6:15am. Jack was back up by 7:30am so we all went ahead and got up to start the day.

I was supposed to go to a sales meeting with Pete at 10am, but given the previous night's circumstances and the fact that Jack is simply not himself due to being sick, I opted to stay home instead. My mom came over and offered to listen for the babies so I could take a nap. I managed to get about 45 minutes in before Elliott and Jack needed me. I really appreciate her coming over and helping out. It helped me get through the rest of my day.

I am hoping and praying that Jackson feels better tomorrow. He needs a good night's rest (and so do we!)

  1. I hate to hear that Jackson is still not well. When little guys hurt, it is tough on everyone. I'll keep praying. Your mom is a jewel.
