Sleep Regression, I hate you

This has been a rough week for sleep in our house. Baby Girl has decided sleep is for suckers and isn’t sleeping as long during the night, waking up to eat more frequently, and eating for longer amounts of time. This all adds up to less sleep for me. This I am not happy about. Here is an example of what we’re dealing with, last night’s activities:
9:15-10:00 – Cora eats
10:00-10:15 – getting Cora ready for bed and getting her asleep.
10:15-10:30 – get myself ready for bed
10:30 – lights out for me
1:33-2:40 – Cora eats and still manages to be asleep most of the feeding
2:44 – I get back in bed
4:45-5:50 – Cora eats and sleeps
5:50 – Cora wakes up as I put her back in her crib. I give her the pacifier and leave her room, hoping she will go back to sleep. No such luck. Give up at 6:10 as her protests are getting louder and I don’t want her to wake up J.

Now if I was able to fall asleep right away every time I got back in bed, I would have gotten 5 hours of interrupted sleep. But I didn’t. I probably got like 4 and a half. Nap time can’t come soon enough today. And unlike Tuesday, today I will be participating in naps.

Ah man

I don’t know if there is anything worse for an exhausted, nursing mom than a big spit up at 1:30 am after a 30 minute nursing session while burping baby and realizing we have to start all over again (not to mention we both need new PJs now).

Also, blogging about how great napping was going yesterday seemed to have jinxed me. Cora did not eat or sleep well yesterday at all. Hopefully it was just a one day setback.

We went to a Just Between Friends sale yesterday evening and really scored. Tons of jammies for 3-6 months (we only had four pairs), a couple bottles, a dress and jeans in 6-9 months, a couple hooded bath towels, and an extra boppy. With how many stairs we have its become cumbersome to try to lug it between floors, especially since I’m usually also carrying Cora, my phone, and a cup of water (I keep one kindle upstairs and one on the bottom level for this very reason as well – a great luxury!). I can’t remember if we got anything else (it is 2 am now :P) but I will snap pictures at some point.

Oh, and if the formatting has become weird, its because I’m using the WordPress app on my phone as I can do that one-handed. Modern mommyhood 😛

Time for this munchkin and mommy to go back to bed. Night all.
