I am so tired... and worried.... and tired. Ashlyn has been getting up VERY early, as in it is still the middle of the night early. I tell her that it is still night-night time, and she cries, "no, eat." She is surely not that hungry that she can't make it through the night?! Other nights/mornings it has just been once, generally around 4:30 or so. 5:30 is just the earliest that I am willing to get up. Well, willing is not the word, but I do get out of bed anyway. Last night, she was up twice. The second time was just before 3! I don't know how early the first time was, Allen got up. I have no idea why she is getting up now! I have been hoping for a time when she would sleep to 7 most days, instead of 6. Doesn't she know that we are not morning people in this house? She'll be up at 4:30, coming into our room, crawling into bed with me, saying "hi, Mommy" in the cheeriest voice.
This getting up at such early hours just makes me more stressed about this new baby. First of all, I've just been more worried that something was wrong this pregnancy(worries for no good reason.) Then, a friend of mine with a new baby has been telling me about how often her child is up at night. I don't know how I am going to manage getting up at 5:30 after being up during the night with a new born. I wasn't worried about how often I would have to get up with Ashlyn, because it was just going to be the one baby. Now, a baby with a toddler? That's a different story. Thank goodness Allen isn't about to deploy this time. Agh. Sleep babies, please sleep.
