Growth Spurt! AH!

Oh my. What a day we've had! Caroline is apparently hitting a growth spurt - which means very little sleep, lots of eating, and fussy fussy fussy!! Needless to say, this growth spurt can't pass quickly enough. She only wants to be held...which is difficult when I need to shower, eat, or even go to the bathroom. So...I haven't showered today and every meal has been eaten with her in the other arm and (even though you don't care) I had to make her cry for a sec if I had to go pee. Judd has been working SO hard this week, getting in at night around 10pm. Tonight they had to work extra late because it's supposed to rain tomorrow. It's midnight and he's still not home.

To add to this tough day, I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a REALLY runny nose. Totally out of nowhere! I think the lack of sleep is killing my immune system this year. I've haven't gotten sick twice in two months in forever. I'm hoping it'll pass soon though.

Why am I on the computer right now instead of sleeping? Well, in all honesty, I'm waiting on the other shoe to drop. Everytime I've put Caroline down in her crib for a nap today she's woken up in less than an hour. This makes for a really grumpy Mommy when I'm alllllmost asleep and have to get up yet again. So, I've decided to just stay awake at least until Judd gets home. (As I was typing this, she woke up looking for her paci...)

Well I am going to sit (and hopefully fall asleep) on the couch until Judd gets home. Goodnight, all! Thank you for reading about my pity party!


  1. It's will get better!! When times got tough like that I tried to be flattered that Juliet wanted me that bad! A few mind games never hurt.

  2. I remember those days. No fun! Trust me, it will get better. Actually, it took 6 MONTHS for it to get better for us, but it will eventually happen.
