Of all the things I worried about during my second pregnancy ‘not getting a full night sleep 1 and 3/4 years later’ wasn’t one of them. 

Warning:  I’m really just here to complain. This post is more for my own personal archives to prevent me from having a third child ?

I’m going to throw down a comparison. 

My first daughter slept through the night at 5 months and 21 days. One of the happiest days of my life! 

As I type this, my youngest is stirring, and I know in about 20 minutes she will be awake. 

Why? I don’t know. I’m not sure where I went wrong. I’ve tried almost everything. Only stopping short of setting up a bed for her in the basement so I can’t hear her at night.

Sometimes I feel like this suffering must be some punishment for something I did in another life! What other reason could there be?!

I thought at 9 months I would be in the clear. Nope. 

Then I reasoned that she had to be over 25 pounds to sleep through the night (I hear that is the weight when they don’t get hungry for at least 8 hours over night). I was wrong again.

I hoped at 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 months that THIS month would be the month that I slept properly. Hahahahha. What was I thinking?

So I gave up. I try not to go to bed before 2 am. I figure that there is no point. I’ll just be up anyway. I save my sleep for Friday night’s when my mom takes the kids. 

Aaaaah pure bliss. Uninterrupted sleep.

When my baby sleeps through the night I don’t know what in the world I will do with myself. Maybe I’ll become a morning person!

Just kidding. Hopefully, I will be able to get back to 10 hour sleeps.
