1:22 AM

Lorelei has been sleeping through the night for just over a month now. It has been the most wonderful gift in the world to me, someone who has always been teased for how much I enjoy my sleep. To be able to sleep straight through the night is something we often take advantage of until we are blessed with a child.

Please, do not get me wrong, I know that when she grows older, I will miss the days when she needed Mommy in the middle of the night. However, due to my post partem depression and awaiting my meds to even out, I already have troubles sleeping. So, when she awoke almost an hour ago at 1:22 AM, I was not in a joyous manner for this occasion, having only successfully fallen asleep about 2 hours previous.

As I changed her, she smiled up at me as though she knew just what to do to make me think her the cutest baby in the world. But although that would work during the day, Mommy was all about business and she's STILL AWAKE! Ugh...Here is hoping that soon she goes back to sleep than sleeps till Mommy is done sleeping!

I understand how difficult the middle of the night stuff can be. I think that every Mom has experienced similar feelings. I remember saying to myself.."He/She's not doing this on purpose, it's nothing personal!" Is that ridiculous? I felt so selfish. It's hard to be yourself when you don't get a good night's sleep. Don't be afraid to ask for help. I will ALWAYS make myself available to help...if you need a break...you are a great Mommy. Lola's a lucky baby!
