I was told that I failed to keep my promise of uploading pictures, so here you go, I'm making up for it. These are all within the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

Lack of sleep

My little boy has decided he does not want to sleep anymore. Last night, for example, he woke up 6 times between 12:30 and 5:45. You do the math. We are completely exhausted and have no idea what to do to help him stay asleep. He is not hungry and rarely needs anything except to be cuddled and put back down. It is so FRUSTRATING!! This has been going on for the past 3 weeks and I'm at my wit's end. He sleeps great on his tummy during the day and I can get some good naps out of him. But nighttime is a different story. I spent more time praying last night for better sleep than I did actually sleeping. I don't know what else to do. I know some babies sleep well and others don't and there is nothing we can really do about it, but we keep trying new things and NOTHING is working. We've tried swaddling, inclining his bed a little, white noise, different pajamas, fewer blankets, more blankets, bath before bed, no bath before bed, many naps during the day, keeping him awake during the day, etc. ARGH!! I'm so exhausted I can barely think straight, and all that is running through my mind is how I am going back to work in two weeks. It makes me want to cry when I think about it. Please pray for us that we can make it through this and keep our sanity, and that whatever is waking Levi up will sort out and go away so he sleeps better at night.

Yet again

So I know it has been a while, again, but I have an excuse this time. I have been at training for the last 4 days for work. Does that count? lol

Actually, there isn't a whole lot of new stuff to report, only that Levi is growing like a weed! He is 13+ lbs, 24 in long, and as cute as a button. He has been smiling like crazy and sleeping in his own room. He has also started taking bottles regularly while I am gone during the day. He is spending a lot of time with his Grammie and Grandpa Ken, and overall is doing fantastic! We are still lacking in a routine, but hopefully he is getting closer to falling into one. As soon as I upload some more pictures I will post them. Keep praying for us that we find a routine soon, and that he starts sleeping more at night. Thanks so much and I promise I will do my best to post pictures this weekend.
