Just another night in the life of having an infant

8:00 p.m. nurse. Baby goes to sleep. Is he gone to sleep for the night?

8:44 p.m. Baby wakes up. okay, let's play!

9:00 p.m. Raspberries, everybody.

9:15 p.m. Let's change to pajamas, yeah!

9:30 p.m. He must be tired, we go snuggle in bed and nurse.

10:20something p.m. finally he is asleep. Is he deep enough to put him in his crib? Dunno, I'll just wait a few minutes until he's good and asleep.

12:30 a.m. Wake up startled, look at the clock, it says three a.m., because the power went out yesterday. I'm all
disoriented and confused. Baby still sleeping soundly. Gather baby up, take him to his crib. Stumble back to bed, drift off...

12:40 a.m. Baby wakes up and cries out. K. goes to get baby, baby is hungry, take baby to couch and nurse. Compose this post (and about 4 other posts) in my brain as baby is nursing.

1:40 a.m. finally get back into bed after putting baby in his crib. Aaaaah, sleep finally comes, and it's 2 and a half lovely uninterrupted hours

4:12 a.m. Baby cries out again. Go to baby, take baby to couch and nurse again.

4:36 a.m. don't even try putting baby back in crib, I'm a terrible, irresponsible mother and leave him on couch. stumble back to bed.

6:00 a.m. Wake up with a start, baby crying. Get up to go get baby, baby is sound asleep (still on the couch). Apparently I just dreamed the baby crying. Stumble back to bed.

8:00 a.m. Baby wakes up, cries out, I go get him and nurse him (still on the couch). Yay, good morning sunshine! Let's start the day!
