I actually feel bad for people who try to have conversations with me thorughout the day because I must sound like I'm completely brain dead. I hope they don't look at me and think, "how on earth is she going to raise a child? She's an idiot!". At least I know it's from lack of sleep, but they probably have no idea. We've tried shifting Connor's sleeping schedule but even if it works for a night, it seems like he bounces right back. We swaddle him, rock him, bouce him, etc. in an attempt to lull him to sleep, but the second we think he's finally out and put him down, we'll see those little eyes POP open and then it's all over and we're back to square one. I know lack of sleep is normal for new parents, and I shouldn't be complaining because overall his schedule isnt THAT bad compared to some other horror stories I've heard, but my oh my...i'm exhausted!
Maybe one day in the not so distant future our little baby will sleep for hours on end in his own crib. But until then, this term "sleep like a baby" baffles me.
