No Sleep Till Brooklyn

Well, make that Rhode Island. Things have been a bit dicey in the sleep department here in Hoagie-land. My formerly wonderful sleeper is now waking up several times a night. I figured out (belatedly) that he is simply hungry, so now he is a night-nurser once again. It has been so long since he woke up in the dead of night to eat that I was expecting the marathon sessions from the newborn days. Now it isn't even a big deal since it only takes him 15-20 minutes to eat.

I leave tomorrow for a weekend trip to see two beloved friends tie the knot on the East Coast so I will actually be able to catch up on some of my missing ZZZZZs. Poor Don however will be warming up a bottle at 2 am and again at 5 am all by himself. He will need some serious down time when I return. I feel guilty for looking forward to me time, and I feel even more guilty that Don will have a stressful weekend while I am having fun. And I feel very sad that I will be away from Logan for so long. Oh the torture of being a parent. I know it is silly, but the feelings are there nonetheless.

In other news Logan is sitting better than ever and has been continuing to do well at daycare. We have noticed a big improvement in his social skills since attending, which is nice. The wonderful Ms. T continues to be all we hoped for and more.

Sunshine is still on a weird eating strike, we really hope it ends soon. More attention really isn't doing the trick, nor is dry food, though it is helping some. She is running around like crazy though, so it hasn't affected her energy level...

I know there are about 1,000 other things to write about but I can't think of any of them right now. Wish us luck on our weekend apart and I will let you all know how it went when I return.

Ok, I'm all caught up! Can't wait to see you tomorrow. SO wish we could see Logie and Don too! I know you will all do great this weekend. Here's hoping for sleeping babies all around!
