Remember me? I am Morgan, the former blogger...ha! I have so many things I want to blog about, but I thought I would stop right here to document that our nights of good, solid rest have come to a screeching halt! That's right, baby boy Watson is at it again.
Actually, he has been very sick with a sinus infection. Normal people, including myself, sleep when sick...but not Eli. On the contrary, it has been around the clock all-nighters since last week.
Thursday I was up twice with him...I think. Actually, I can't remember because this past week has been one EXTREMELY long day if you get my drift! Friday night was spent sleeping on the couch. I did wake up twice completely drenched from a leaking sippy cup. Darn things!
Saturday night Eli was up every, and I am not exaggerating, EVERY 25 minutes!! It was horrid!
Despite being sick himself, Eric took baby duty last night so I could rest. It was wonderful!!
I used to wonder why people had only one kid...now I know!! They had bad ones the first go-a-round. I've always heard people sa, " if (fill in name) had been my first, it would have been my last."
Well, I got my last first. What? What I mean is, I may be done. If I do decide to venture out for another one, it will be a very, very long time. And if by chance I bring up the "b" (baby) or "p" pregnancy words to you within the next half decade, please do me a favor and slap me...or at least remind me that I managed to birth the worlds WORST sleeper the first go-a-round. It really is a GREAT form of birth control, and if you don't believe me I'll loan him to you for the night. Trust me, you'll be back on the pill in no time flat! Ha!
The truth is, any time Eli doesn't sleep I get anxious and border line depressed. I am walking a thin line right now and could use your prayers. The support from my husband, family and friends is the only thing that keeps be semi-sane during our sleepless spells. We serve a Mighty God, and during the good times I've filled my heart with his word to encourage me in times like this. I am pulling from that pool of scripture today. Please pray for consistent rest in our home and for a healthy little boy.
It may be a while before I have enough energy to update you, but please know I am so thankful for your support!
