Sleep Please


Due to Columbus Day and working til 1 am one night I got to put baby to sleep and wake up with her 4 days in a row. So last night when I had to go to bed before she went to bed, I didn’t like it and she apparently didn’t either. I got up at 2am and finally got her to go to sleep. So I’m going on about 5.5 hours of sleep.
It’s not the same with daddy. We don’t know if he does things differently or if she thinks of us differently. Usually I nurse her, but last night I just held her and rocked her quickly. She doesn’t awaken when I talk, but if daddy so much as sighs or clears his throat, even when I’m holding her, she wakes up and looks for him.
I’m hoping tonight is a better night. I want to cry because I can’t stay up and put her to sleep. Maybe I’ll get to do that again on Thursday, but for tonight I’ll just pray her time with daddy is smooth and she sleeps soon.
