Mae (Sweetpea’s new name) is going through a stage where she will scream in the middle of the night until we bring her to bed with us. It has made for a long couple of weeks. We have started to go to her room and reassure her that she is alright and then we let her cry. It has been hard to let her cry. I just want to go and get her and let her sleep with us, but I know that is something that we don’t want to encourage. It also makes it hard to sleep when she is crying and screaming. The last couple of nights have been a little easier. I am just hoping we can get over this stage quickly.
Last night, Mae did well and only cried for about a half an hour until she returned to sleep. It was another little one keeping me awake last night. Little E was kicking so hard that it woke me up. The kicking lasted for about an hour. I finally woke D up so he could feel it. It did not take long for him to feel a good kick. That was neat. I have felt E move a little, but not a lot. Because of the positioning of everything I was told not to be surprised if I did not feel the baby move or kick. So, I am glad that I was able to have that experience.
I am just glad I was able to take a nap this afternoon. Looking forward to the day off with Mae tomorrow.
