Bounce

Oh Boy...

I hope this isn't the start of something. Please say it's a fluke, or the result of something I ate. Please tell me that is what it is.

Port has been awake pretty much all day today. He woke up at 9:30 and has only slept for 10 minutes here and there ever since. He is acting like he has a tummy ache - lots of squirming and red, contorted faces, but I am starting to remember exactly what his big brother did to me at this age.

Oh Lordy, I don't know if I can do this again.

With Kiddo - sometimes the only way to get him settled down was to do this ridiculous exaggerated bouncy dance, complete with deep knee bends and squats. He could sleep on my chest while I did that dance for as long as my legs would hold out. It was a great workout; toned my legs up quick - but well, it was not exactly how I wanted to spend my hours.

I found myself doing that dance a minute ago. And when I realized it, I promptly put Port in his bassinet. He slept for about 3 minutes.

*sigh*

This cannot be happening again.

Until,
D :)

I found myself in the same boat just the other day when N started to act just like C before the colic set in, and I had my *oh no, not again* moment. Keep our fingers crossed that our seconds are better sleepers than our firsts.

Sending "just a fluke" vibes!!

You poor thing! But it will pass like everything else, so just try to sneak in the rest when you can for now and know sleep will one day return!!
