I can’t believe our baby turned already 3 months this week. After I mentioned how great of a sleeper she is, she obviously felt the need to prove me wrong. So we ended up with three pretty bad nights in a row. Once Josephine woke up at 3.30 a.m. and wouldn’t go back to bed. So the three of us had a very early start into the day. Yawn. I am not productive at all on those days. And once more I was incredibly grateful for being a stay-at-home mom right now. I would have been absolutely unbearable if I had had to go to work.
By now it seems we have passed this spell of bad sleep. I recently read somewhere that it is good to remind oneself that “it is so hard to be a baby” – and I think that is so true. Josephine doesn’t do these things to annoy us. Instead she herself probably suffers the most from not sleeping well.
Else, not much happened this week – I am really pretty useless when tired. Most likely my biggest success has been that I managed to eat breakfast every single day. It’s the little things :-).
