Tired

Right, about now I am feeling super overwhelmed!! My 9 month old will not fall asleep on his own for the life of him. I have been trying to get him down for a nap for about the last 45 min....he is so tired but just keeps crying. I am guessing he is over tired and getting over stimulated by his older brother. Currently he is in his crib crying, crying and crying. When bedtime rolls around it's the same deal. My husband and I recall our oldest son going through a similar faze (although, I must have blocked it out of mind because I have no recollection of it). Let me tell you it's emotionally draining. My oldest son is definatley having his own set of issues as well. He's 3 and I know his behavior is very much the norm but I am out of tricks and exhausted.

But, tomorrow I get a spa day. THANK YOU JESUS!! The timing couldn't be more perfect. So, I guess I can muster up the energy and grace to make it through the rest of the day and tonight (my husband will be working late) for some much needed rest and relaxation tomorrow.

I better go get the little guy!!!

I know exactly what you are going through! All Jake wants to do is play with Ashley, bu tgot her so over tired that it took forever to fall asleep as well. I think that it has a lot to do with the terrible 3's. Don't worry, Ashley was able to start soothing herself after a few months. This to will pass!

I have nothing but empathy for you sister! Instead of moving the crib into the house, we're buying a mattress so I can sleep in the baby's room with her. I've given up!

How nice you get a spa day!
