I've gotten a mound of much needed and appreciated advice/words of wisdom over the last few days on this post. And I need to be completely honest with myself and admit that Baby D really is a trooper sleeper. While we've had a few rough days, it really is relative. He's been this pretty (knock on wood) perfect sleeper since we started Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child, and I was just so used to him being in a regular routine that when he strayed from that routine, it completely threw me off guard. He is still healthy, happy as can be, and while he may not be napping longer than an hour at a time, he's still getting 13-15 hours of sleep a day, for which I am incredibly grateful. Mr. D has been a HUGE help in the sleep department, feeding Baby D in the wee hours of the morning when I just can't manage to get myself up.
I may not be getting all the sleep I want/need but there are more important things I am trying to tackle right now. Like getting over this apathy of work, working out etc.
I am in a funk. A pretty bad one at that. And I am just trying to snap out of it as quickly as possible...its just taking a lot longer than I thought it would. But as always, I will be okay. I will always be okay in the end.
