Okay, first of all, to any of you with a newborn, or kids who do not normally sleep well, I apologize for what I am about to complain about! I have been very spoiled with a boy who normally sleeps through the night.
Anyway, last night was one I do not care to repeat any time soon! Rowan went to sleep fine, no crying, no whining, nothing. Keith and I went to bed early, so we both felt like this was going to be a good night to catch up on some much needed sleep.
Fast forward to 3 am. Rowan is crying. So, like I usually do when he cries, I went into his room to see what he needed. He didn't seem to want anything, just to get out of bed. So I told him that mommy was going back to sleep, and he needed to stop crying. This usually works. Not this time! About 10 minutes later he's crying again. I went in again, and this time gave him a big hug and some water. Then I showed him that it was all dark in the house, and mommy and daddy were sleeping. He went back in his bed and was quiet for a few minutes. Then the crying started again! This time Keith went in. He went in again about 10 minutes later. Now I thought for sure we'd be able to sleep. It was already 4 am.
Well, what do you know, he starts crying again at 4:30! This time I went in and rocked him and sang songs until he fell asleep... half an hour later! I went to bed thinking I would probably get to sleep in because Rowan would be so tired from being up for 2 hours. WRONG! He woke up before Keith's alarm, and that was it for my rotten night! Needless to say, I'm less than impressed with anything that is happening so far this morning.
