It is no secret that Daniel is cute. He is smiley. Daniel is a good eater. He is generally a very good natured baby.
Our secret is that Daniel is not sleeping through the night. And I have to say it...I stronglly dislike people who have babies who sleep through the night on their own because I am at a loss on how to get this one to sleep through the night.
We have been working on sleeping through the night in a serious way for the past few weeks. But, it never fails, at between 3 and 3:30 AM he decides to wake up, and then sometimes he wakes up again at 4 and then at 5 (when I finally feed him). He hasn't been fed overnight for several weeks but that has not twarted his attempts at night time attention.
I feel like I should have this figured out by now. He is my third son. He, however, is not like his brothers who needed just one night of crying for 10-15 minutes. No, Daniel, cries for an hour before Chris or I break down and go give him his pacifier and a pat to let him know we still love him. The bags under my eyes and the ecezema breakout on my hand attest to the stress I am feeling. We have a couple weekends of trips coming up and sleeping for more than 5 hours would be so refreshing.
He is really cute though....see...
