six word sunday: A sight both rare and beautiful
six word sunday challenge
In the past 2 weeks Donovan has gone from eating every 3-4 hrs during the day and 4-5hrs at night, to eating every 2 hours during the day and maybe going 3-4 hrs at night. This whole week it seems he's hardly slept during the daytime, allowing me perhaps a 20-30 minute catnap here or there. Just today he's seemed so incredibly sleepy yet anytime I set him down he gets woken up 5-10 minutes later by something-- dirty diaper, pacifier falling out of his mouth, invisible gnomes pinching his toes...
He's now been in the sling for the past 20 minutes, eyelids looking heavy but never really closing, and even if he does fall asleep now he's only got another 30 minutes before I'm sure he'll be up again for the next feeding.
I know I shouldn't complain as he still sleeps much better during the night than many other newborns his age... I guess I just keep waiting for a nice, long, hour nap b/c he looks so tired it doesn't seem like it's gonna happen.
