Sleep in Heavenly Peace
It's amazing how our feelings about sleep change as we get older. I for one, and I'm sure most of you mommies out there will agree with me, feel like I have been sleep deprived since the moment I found out I was pregnant. It suddenly becomes such a big deal how you sleep, how much you are sleeping, where you sleep ( I spent the last month of my pregnancy and the first three months of Chasey's life on the couch. I do NOT recommend it!) and so on. Babies get to sleep as much as they want. I've realized lately that I have a ton of pictures of Chasey sleeping. So much so that I can't wait to do an entire segment in the scrap book, just of him napping in various places!
Obviously the carrier is a popular spot!
And again, something to consume us, is baby getting enough sleep at night? Are they taking naps during the day? Are they on their backs, not covering their face with the blanket, warm enough and not too warm, oh and are they breathing??? As we get older it seems the desire gets stronger for sleep, but the amount of time left over from a gagillion other things makes the actuality of sleep harder. I guess that is just what mommies do. So I will take one for the team! I will continue my depravation for the greater good! Here's to my men sleeping in Heavenly peace. I'll catch up someday!!
