Sleep, what's that???

Mason will be 4 weeks on Sunday. I would say we are almost through the first phase. I consider 6 weeks to be the first baby phase, and by that time you know you are starting to get close to them sleeping through the night. And oh how I can't wait for that. Did you know that the Tonight Show comes on again in the early morning hours. So does Oprah. And if you missed Karen and Abner (the news for you out of towners) at 10p.m. you can catch them again in the wee hours of the morning. And Carson Daly is just dumb. He's not even funny. I can't believe he has his own show.

The kids are adjusting to Mason pretty well. Madi likes him a lot, and loves to help. She really is a good big sister. Kyle on the other hand seems to have a little bit harder time. Not just because there is a new addition, but because he is just a momma's boy, and always has been. He likes you to do everything for him, and he is so stubborn! But all in all, they are doing well with him.

I am definately hurting in the sleep category. During the night last night Mason woke up every 2-3 hours to eat. The night before he didn't sleep from 11p.m until 3a.m. My mom came and got him at 3 and let me sleep. Fortunately the kids slept until 9a.m. that morning, so I did too. That was nice. All of that, and I have still managed to shower, do my hair and make-up everyday. I know, even I am amazed. Well except for today. I got kicked out of my house today, so that they could re-tile my bathroom. So I am a little out of sorts today. I've just figured out that if I don't keep going, and I stay still too long, I'll fall asleep. So I just press on. Sleep is overrated anyways, right???? :) I remember when Madi was born I always asked myself two questions. Will I always be tired? and Will I always be hot? I was always matter what or how many naps I had. And I was always sweating. Carrying around that carseat is no easy task. Well I find myself asking those questions again, but I know the answers. No, I will someday sleep, and someday I will not profusely sweat. :)

I don't know what I would do without my mom though. I am so serious. She has just been a lifesaver for me. I feel like I owe her so much for all the help that she has given me. I keep telling my parents that the nursing home that they will move into someday just keeps getting better and better because of all the help they have given me. I am SO grateful to be near them.

Well I better go...there is more to be done!

You poor thing!! Sounds like you could use a break already!! I know how you feel about no sleep though, I'm not getting any sleep because of my huge stomach! Those infomercials are getting boring!! Maybe we should start calling each other when we up at night!! But you are right, we can sleep when we get older! Who needs rest! Take care and I hope to see yall soon. Oh, your mom is great huh!! What would we do without them!!

The lack of sleep can make you batty, it did me at least. Glad to hear how he is growing and things are progressing along. How nice to have your mom right there and to come at 3 in the morning! I look forward to seeing you again soon! Maybe later than sooner, we have all had the tummy bug :( Hopefully on the healing side though!

At least you know that it wont be much longer until he starts sleeping. If it makes you feel any better, Maverick wakes us up 2 or 3 times a night because he thinks it's funny to growl in our face. I guess it's not the same because I just slap him and tell him to shutup. Probably not an appropriate thing to do with Mason :)

Man Larissa, I cannot imagine! Lack of sleep can effect everything in life. You are in my prayers. I pray you have strength and patience. I am so glad you have your family.

Praying you get some good sleep very soon! Those first sleepless weeks just feel soooooo long! Then before you know it the baby's not a baby anymore! Craziness! And I'm with Lynsey, if you are able to sit down and update I don't think anyone else can use the "too busy to blog" excuse anymore!

No sleep and sweat...not a good combo but what a good excuse you have.

Hope you get some good rest soon.

Oh, yes, I think you are almost there with the sleeping all night thing. Remember the first time your others did it? You woke up and went, "Hey, hon, did you get up with them, cause I didn't?...Oh, yes! They slept all night!"

Thanks for the update, despite your tiredness.
