Tuesday was "one of those days". Greg was home sick (he's better now). Naomi was cranky and Micah did not want to sleep. I was exhausted and all of these factors were not helping that. I got Naomi down for her nap (well, she was in her room talking to herself like she usually does till she falls asleep) and was ready for Micah to sleep for the normal 2-3 hours that he does in the afternoon but he was not having it. I'd get him to sleep, lay him down and then 5 minutes later he was awake and crying. So I'd rock him again, lay him down, 5 minutes later he's awake. So I nursed him, lay him down, 5 minutes later he's awake. So I tried the swing. Finally, he was asleep for more than 5 minutes. But then I got stupid and turned the swing off because I read that babies will sleep more soundly if they are not moving, the idea is to get them to sleep using the swinging motion and then stop that motion. So I did, and what did I get...10 minutes. Thanks! Okay, so it was one of those days, we all have them. And I know that my bad days are not nearly as bad as some people have it but I just thought I'd take a moment and complain. Sorry. But doesn't he look cute in the swing.
