Sleep.... Where are you?

Kevin sleeping this morning
Anya was not a good sleeper as an infant, or so I thought. Oh how I long for the days when Anya was a baby. I wish Kevin was just like her. She used to take 3 naps. a.m. 2 hrs noon 3 hrs evening 2 hrs and when she slept it was for 12 hours and she would get up, eat, and go right back to sleep. She slept through the night at 7 months and only got up once or twice before that.

Flash to 2007/8 Kevin is here. His first 2 weeks ALL he does is sleep. He is awake for about 1 hour all day. Now he is almost 6 months old. He takes a 1 hour nap in the am. and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon. I won't let him take an evening nap. He goes to bed at about 7 pm. He wakes up A LOT. Two nights ago he woke up 3 times, ate and went right back to sleep. It was a GREAT night. I felt awsome the next day. Last night he woke up at 11 I fed him and he slept again until 3 am. That was it, up for the day. He finally fell back to sleep at 6 and Ed woke up moving around the house woke him up and he fell back to sleep at 8. Now it is 8:38. Anya just woke up and apparently was too loud getting out of bed because he is now awake. It wouldn't be so bad if Anya napped but we have had to cut her naps to a 1/2 hour. That leaves me no time to sleep. It is partially my own fault I stayed up until midnight watching Project Runway and reading. I can't watch adult shows during the day, Anya doesn't sleep long enough. Oh enough of my pity party. Kevin is really a great baby. I have decided that he doesn't sleep because then I would have a perfect baby and that doesn't happen. It will get better, I know. But for now I walk in a fog called tired.
