Sleep Deprivation

I am so sleep deprived lately! I tell you, I'm getting too old for this. I should have started having kids earlier! To think, I want one more, oh... the thought is making my head spin.

Mason's schedule lately has been a little crazy at night, he's in that "I'm almost ready to sleep through the night, but every now and than I've changed my mind stage." Ya, you know what I mean.

The last couple of weeks the time between feeding has gotten longer and longer and then all of the sudden he wants to get up 2 to 3 times a night. So, I slowly roll out of bed, yes roll, literally; get a bottle ready while he's crying like he's going to starve to death. I get him settled and one sip from the bottle and he's out like a light. I try to give him his pacifier but that trick is old hat for him. The other thing is he wants to lay down by mommy because she is nice and warm and cuddly!

So now what? He insists on the real deal, his bottle and insists on sleeping next to me. Well, I guess the entire family is going to be sleeping in our room. So much for that third child. WAIT!!! No, this will not happen any longer! Mason will continue to be put back in his crib and Dylan's bunk bed mattress will be back on the bed and in his OWN room before May is over!

I can't do this any more, I'm taking back my room and my sleepless nights...and the covers Jeremy steals!

Oh please Mason, if you love me like I know you do, please let me sleep through the night SOON! And Dylan, I love you and all but GET OUT OF MOM AND DAD'S ROOM ALREADY, man up, there aren't monsters or ghosts in your room!

The Final Countdown!

Yes, the final countdown! Six days to go until this baby is finally out of me! I mean, until our precious new addition is here.

I have to say, no matter how many kids you have, the last month of pregnancy sucks! I'm so ready to have this baby my eyes are watering just waiting for my water to break. This pregnancy has been filled with more contractions than I ever had with Dylan and I haven't even gone into labor yet.

So February 1st is the Day I am being induced, don't know what time or anything, but I will find that out on Thursday. I would love to have Mason a couple days earlier, but he is keeping his hands and feet inside the ride at all times; and by that I can already tell that he is going to be a lot like his mommy and older brother...stubborn! Dylan had to be forced out by induction and dragged out with forceps, He wasn't going anywhere. Let's hope we don't have to go that far this time.

Well, next time I post we should have our little guy here and ready for some posing for pictures.

Wish me luck!
