Our little Arlo has been keeping me up way too much. In the past week I have been averaging about 4-5 hours of broken sleep a night. It's ugly. He was doing good before then and then regressed. I think his cold sorta reverse-sleep trained him into waking at night. Cold's gone now though.
however, I have dedicated myself to sleep training this week. I have nothing (especially not sleep) to lose! So I have read a book that teaches specific ways of handling his night wakings and have started adhering to them. Last night was the first night and I think I got a couple more hours of sleep!
It's nothing to crazy. He's not crying for hours on end. In fact, I think he was crying more BEFORE I started this training because I'd be so deep in a sleep it'd take me a while to hear him.... and get the energy to go see him.
we will see how it goes! But man oh man would I like to drop this current obsession and move on to being interested in things like exercise (which, besides walking I have not done a lick of) and fitting back in to my cute clothes and swimsuit! Weight loss is going ok but I feel so sluggish every day that I eat whatever I want. And I want a social life back!!
With that said I am going to go wake up Arlo from his afternoon nap because it's 4pm and he's not allowed to sleep past 4 anymore! And then I am going to bundle up my boys and go on a big fat walk and enjoy the last few hours of sunshine!
Cy was literally rolling in mud the other day. He has a mud mustache in this pic.
