The Walking Tired

The Walking Tired.  Yep, that's me.  (borrowed that cute little phrase from my bff who came up with it this morning as we were texting about how horribly our babies are sleeping at night.)  Henry has been up hourly after midnight for the last two days and it is driving me insane.  I have googled it and apparently it could be a 4 month growth spurt.  I hope it passes quickly.  It is insanely tiring.  Would make for good torture of your worst enemy.  Husband and I have been taking shifts since 12 weeks, where from 8-1 he will be "on call" and I can sleep, and the rest of the night, it's my turn.  Husband came to bed at 12:15 last night and said he had just put Henry back down.  I figure he'd be good until at least 3.  Nope!  At 1:15 he was up.  So, I nursed him until 2 and put him back down, and that stinker was up at 2:50!  I tried rocking him and then husband gets up because of all the crying and I let him hold him for a while, and then he hands him back to me and says that I "can" bring him to bed (like I need the permission) and he can just put earplugs in.  I was like, "I wish I could do that."  So, from then until 6:30 in the morning, I laid in bed with Henry draped across me, nursing and snoozing, while I tried to sleep.  Needless to say, not much sleeping was done.  

But, big advancement today!  Henry rolled over!  And I wasn't looking.  :(  I put him down on his tummy and was typing a text message and looked up and he was on his back!  But, I grabbed the iphone and waited a bit more, and he did it again.  So proud of him.   Now if he could just be a good boy and do some sleeping!  :)
