Ya’ll…thank GOODNESS it’s Friday. Not that the weekend is that much different than the weekdays for me while I’m not working but I’ll have Robert home to help for two days and that’s awesome. This week has been….challenging. Spencer is definitely asserting himself more and isn’t quite that easy, sleepy newborn we had the first two weeks. That said, when it comes to newborns, he’s still pretty good and we can’t complain. Maxwell on the other hand?…oh Maxwell. He has been another story. I’m not sure what’s going on with him (jealousy? major attachment to me?) but he’s been a terrible sleeper this week. Terrible. Naps have consisted of him screaming and wailing in his bed for over an hour. I don’t know what to do because I can’t sit in there and rock him because Spencer needs me. He’s SO tired and needs the sleep but just starts crying as soon as I walk out the door. Nighttime isn’t going that much better and he’s wailed for over an hour the past 3 nights before finally giving in to sleep. He’s always been SUCH a good sleeper and gone to bed with no problems – I have no idea where this is all coming from. I just hope it’s a phase and we can get through it because I am one tired Momma and my nerves are shot from all the screaming.
Still, regardless of how hard this week has been I do love, love, love these boys…
and, yes, Spencer is in a monkey outfit. It was a cold morning and the fleece monkey costume was warm! 🙂
Here’s to a great and RESTFUL weekend ahead!
