I'm so damn tired. I didn't think it would come to this! Yesterday was Colton's Baptism which equals people over and kids get zero naps in . Colton still takes 3 naps a day which totals about 6 hours of daytime sleep. But yesterday, he got about 1 hour TOPS of sleep all day. I figured (but should have KNOWN better) that he would of slept all night long. Was I wrong! Can I just say, I woke up on every single hour, with a SCREAMING baby who could not get consoled back to sleep? Next time, no matter what, NAPS! I don't care where we are, who we're with, etc. With Chayden, I was very STRICT on his nap schedule and no matter what, we scheduled our day around him so he could nap. I got a ton of shit for it but guess what, ... he was the most awesome sleeper you'd EVER imagine! Colton is different. We schedule our lives around us now instead of him and that needs to stop. I am the one who hears Colton at night. I am the one who wakes up every hour to console him. I am the one that wakes up at 7am for the day. I am the crabby, bitchy, get the hell out of my way ... type of person when I don't get at least 4 hours of solid sleep. So guess what. Today, get the hell out of my way. I'm exhausted! And I hope Colton is not that overly tired that he naps well this afternoon. Like, 4 hours straight.
Lesson learned. No nap for baby = overly tired baby. Overly tired baby = No sleep at night baby.
So, if you babies don't get their naps in, are they SO overly tired at night that they don't sleep? Or is that when they sleep amazing?
