Sweet baby Elle, I am tired. So tired. You are four months old and am hitting the wall. I am begging you to sleep. Please. I am not sure I can go on.

Last week, I wrote a sappy post about how I will soon miss waking up every night for her bottle. Not sure what I was thinking because last night, I was ready to cry out of desperation. If you have had kids, you know how tired you can get after four months of not getting sleep. You are a walking zombie. Even if I nap, I can't feel normal.

So today, I am heading to the grocery store and purchasing cereal. It may not help but it cannot make it worse. I will feel better that somehow it may help the cause.

I'd write a longer post but I swear I can't think straight I am so tired. I am off to eat an English muffin and then I am taking a nap. I am sure I will miss having a newborn someday when I am well rested. That's why God gives you grandchildren, right? Night, night.

Oh man, I remember that so well. My Tommy NEVER slept. He wouldn't sleep longer than an hour at night and would not nap at all. Sleep deprevation is the worst feeling in the world.
I hope the cereal helps.
Night, night.

My son slept through the night from the time he was six weeks old. Then my daughter came along, she's seven months old now, and STILL getting up at least once a night at least four times a week. I've cried with her some nights; I feel you there.
I hope the cereal does the trick.

My son did not sleep through the night until he was 14 months old. He is now 18 months and is still waking about 4 nights a week. I feel for you!! I hope it gets better!!
