Where's the Caffeine?!??

Seriously, where is the caffeine? Why does my child not like to sleep? What did I do to deserve these sleepless nights? UGH!!!! 

Now it's an ear infection keeping him up and screwing up the nighttime sleep and I am about at wits end. I love you Luke but can you just pllllllleeeeeassssseeeeee sleep! We have a "conversation" every night where I talk to Luke and say, "Ok buddy, tonight you are going to sleep the whole night through and not wake up once until it's time to get up. Right buddy?" But our "conversations" are useless right now because he just "isn't listening". I know, he will sleep eventually. I'm still hoping for sooner, rather than later! 

When the alarm goes off and you go get your squishy little one from their bed and they give you a big gummy smile; your heart melts and you immediately forget that you are frustrated at the lack of sleep. Trust me though, once you're at work, you don't forget and struggle with keeping those eyes open all day. That gummy smile is what keeps me going through the day. So keep up those smiles Luke. Those smiles are worth a night of crappy sleep.


Andy asked me yesterday, "So you seriously want another one?" My answer is still of course a yes. If you asked me while I was pregnant, my answer was "We will see". Now that Luke is here, I totally want another one. I want to give Luke a sibling, even though siblings can be overrated at times. If I could, I'd have another one right now and get the sleepless nights over with, but it's just not in the cards for us right now money wise. Daycare alone costs us $189 A WEEK! Can you imagine 2 in daycare at that price! We simply just cannot afford that right now. Am I crazy? You betcha!

He is so cute! And I promise a year from now you totally have forgotten about how hard these long nights are and be ready to do it all over again! :)

Aw, that is one cute smile! When he feels good, how long does he usually sleep? Caleb usually does 3 hour stretches but he'll only be 3 weeks old tomorrow.

Oh man, the second baby question. We always wanted 2 kids but now we're both saying just one! Maybe we'll change our minds but who knows! It's great that you already want another. I'm sure Luke will love having a sibling.
