There she is peacefully sleeping. It could almost fool you into thinking that this baby thing is pretty easy. Almost. My little munchkin has really been putting her daddy and I through the fire by deciding she doesn't want to nap anymore and nighttime should be spent in our bed. Every night I find myself praying, "Lord, please give me the grace and patience to get through this night." And, He does. I knew before I had Haven that the lack of sleep would be really tough on me. I've always been an 8-9 hour required sleep girl. Not anymore.
And now that she's awake more, she's decided that's all she wants to be during the day. So, I have to be pretty crafty to get her to take a good nap. She's only three months old--I'm told it gets easier. But, I have recurring nightmares that she will be 6 months, 9 months, a year old and I will still be getting up 3 or 4 times a night. On the plus side, she generally sleeps in until about 8 in the morning. That's gotta be better than a 5 a.m. wake-up call.
