Ugh. I'm so tired today. I just can't seem to find any energy to do ANYTHING. I managed to struggle through Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD while the boys pretended to take a nap. After that I've been wiped out.

They suck at sleeping the past few nights. They wake up in the middle of the night to eat and then are wide awake. I can't put Isaiah back down in bed because he just gets noisy and then none of us get any sleep. He could be fast asleep but the second I lay him down he's wide awake. 

Then Julian wakes up and decides to poop. I can't leave him in it all night so I have to wait for him to finish, and by that time he's wide awake too.

I went to bed at a little after 11 last night. I was up at 12 something to feed Isaiah. Julian woke up at like, 2 I think and I handed him off to Chikezie. Isaiah woke up a little before 4 and then Julian short after. Isaiah refuses to fall asleep and I was still awake close to 5am. I finally fell asleep with him on the couch at some point...Then Chikezie got ready for work early this morning; before 8. So him opening and closing doors, making his lunch in the kitchen and just making noise woke me up then. I'd say I got maybe 4 full hours of sleep last night.

All after just last week they both slept until 5 and 6 am. And the past few nights Julian has slept until 5am-ish and Isaiah only waking up once before then.

I'm getting really worn out.


  1. hang in there mama! you seriously deserve an award for taking care of TWO!

  2. You are doing great! This is a challenging time and you will get through it ... although it doesn't seem like it most days. Major kudos for even attempting to workout. You are amazing!! I think the babes go in spurts at this age ... they give you some hope by sleeping great for a few days and then they retreat. Hang in ... this part will get better! ;)

  3. Thanks guys. Last night was much better. Both were super sleepy by 8pm and Julian actually fell asleep in his bouncy chair which hasn't happened in a long time.

    They both woke up at 1:30 to eat, even though they weren't asleep until around 2:30. But neither boy woke up again until 6 and then fell back asleep for another hour or so.

  4. I hear you. My twins have been terrible with their sleeping this past week and I too am T.I.R.E.D. I hope you are travelling better now.
