Dear Baby

My Dearest Baby Boy,

I realize that you have only been on this planet a mere 6.5 months and things are all new and exciting for you.  I also realize that it is hard being a baby.  Teeth, gas, rolling over, the lint and stale cheerio you were trying to eat off the living room floor all contribute to you needing to stay awake all night and process through your very bright and very new brain.  I get it son, I really do, BUT - MAMA NEEDS SLEEP.  Sweetheart you aren't an only child.  You are one of 3 very sweet, but very needy boys.  It is bad times when I am so tired that I forget your oldest brother's drink in his lunch or his lunch all together, because you decided it would be fun to roll around grabbing your feet while simultaneously screeching about not being able to get to your foot through the sleep contraption you insist of sleeping with at 3 am. I have left keys and wallets places they shouldn't be left.  I drove away one morning after warming up my car (gotta love the -10 degree weather!) forgetting that I was driving the big kid to school.  Oh and while we are on the subject of sleeping my love, naps?  Yeah, lets work on them.  I would love nothing more than to snuggle you and carry doze on the couch holding you for your naps like I did with your brothers, but I can't.  I have too much to do and I don't relish the idea of living in squalor.  I only ask for 1.5-2 hours twice a day, in your bed so I can do stuff like....shower, wash dishes, clean up the gazillion toys looking to ruin my feet while I walk, and think about all the cool stuff I want to do with you guys that I can't do when I am going on 2 hours sleep a night for months and months.

You know sweetie, they say that parents of babies who sleep are much more fun.......

All my love,
