Can Anybody Explain to me...

Why Jeramy can sleep through Jillian's loudest cries but I am so attuned to her every little noise that I must wear earplugs to get any sleep at all?

And why one the one night of the week that Jeramy is assigned the middle of the night feed does she sleep for 8 hours? (he'd have more nights but he does need to be awake for work whereas I can feasibly operate in a zombie like state)

On another note, next week is "Cat Fight Week" on Judge Alex. There is always so much to look forward to on daytime T.V.

LL also tends to sleep different hours whenever we assign S to take a middle-of-the-night feeding. That's why I reserve the right to ask for a "do-over" and assign him a different night later that week instead.

But then, at 3:30 this morning, I was so exhausted when LL woke up hungry that I actually woke up S and told him I'd give him $10,000 to take that feeding right then. He turned me down.

If it makes you feel any better, G never had to take Lemy over night. Ever. Since I'm still BFing, I just handle her all the time. So, I feel you on your lack of sleep. ((HUGS))

Cat Fight Week - thanks for reminding me! (just kidding...LOL)

8 hours of sleep? That's incredible...Jules has only had 1 night of 5 hours...but usually it's more like 3 hours...UGH.

My DH tries to help out by taking a night shift, but it's usually the morning shift that he takes (around 7 or so)...so he can sleep thru the night for work. Lucky dog!

Bean is one of the worst sleepers ever, and DH can't help with feedings/comforting until science allows men to spontaneously lactate, so I've been a zombie now for more months than I care to count. Don't worry, from the sound of it, Jillian will be STTN before you know it. Bean didn't sleep 8 hours in a row until 7 months old, and he's only done it about four times.

Thanks for the heads up on Cat Fight Week. I myself am partial to People's Court (I have a crush on Judge Marilyn Milian) but Judge Alex has been growing on me.

OMG that's so going to be Lance too. He can sleep through anything. I had to LOL at Nicky offering "S" $10,000! That's great!!

I actually got nauseous thinking about watching Daytime Court TV - We need to get you some movies ;P

Reed is a light sleeper, and with me already doing one alone - I almost feel rebellious to make him get up with our (hopefully future) baby. Just so I can laugh and say "SEE! Not So Easy Is It"

Yeah - he's the type to think parenting is just so easy if you just ----(do this or do that) until he's faced with it. I've definitely had my share of laughs with Reed and Dylan.

I've heard other people talk about how their kids sleep much better on nights when their dad is on duty. Mr. W doesn't even think he'll hear the boys at night. But that's OK, if he doesn't hear them, he'll feel my feet pushing him out of the bed. Haha!
