Sleep! my old friend, how I have missed you!


Last night went well for us.  Nate slept on the couch with the monitor and I was in bed by 9:30pm.  I ended up taking a Tylenol PM because I had such anxiety about Nate being the sole caregiver through the night.  I did wake up every time they cried because at this point I think my body is on autopilot.  Aria woke up at 11:30 and then Liv woke up around 1:30.  I woke up around 5:30 with evidence that I hadn't feed the Aria or pumped for Liv so I  had to remedy that unpleasant experience.  As I was pumping I realized I hadn't heard Liv around 3am Like I usually do and wondered if I slept through it.  I went back to sleep until around 6:45 when both girls woke up hungry.  Nate came in with them so we could tag team the feeding and I knew I was up for the day.  He said Liv slept for almost 5.5 hours!!  Pardon my language but what the hell!!!! Why would she sleep for him and not me!!!!  He said it was because he feed her more at 1:30.  trust me I have tried that and she usually never eats more that 2.5 oz.  Last night she did and slept longer.  I will try that tonight but I am not me I own every sleep book and have tried everything!  So apparently they just like to sleep for Nate.  We will see how tonight goes.
Anyway, I woke up this morning thinking I still want to sleep.  I didn't wake up with that refreashed feel I thought I would have.  I will admit I was really disappointed.  I slept 8 hours with 5 being a straight stretch.  I haven't done that in forever.  So I got up with the girls around 7am  although for Nate to get the full experience he should have gotten up with them and started his day.  Maybe another day.  Anyway, I got the girls dressed and made coffee.  The next thing I knew I had 2 loads of laundry almost done and I made some homemade fabric softner without even dragging.  Maybe my body appreciated the sleep more than I thought!  We will have to see how the rest of the day goes.   Now I need to pack up and get the girls ready for a Chili cook off at PSU!
