Is anyone doing swim classes yet? I think I'll sign up Romea for a class in January.
Is anyone else having sleep issues with their babies? Romea wakes up about 3-7 times a night...

Hello I'd like to join. My April baby, Ewan, was born on the 29th. He has a big brother Kian who is a 3.5.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Sometimes I am afraid he has something wrong because he doesn't sleep deeply, but he is soooooo happy when he is awake I am sure he is not sleep deprived. I have no one to talk to about this IRL, because people don't understand why I just won't put him in the crib and CIO. It just feels good to know I am not the only one struggling with this. All the mums I associate with have magical babies they put down and sleep. (husband is convinced that they put them down and ignore them... who is to say?)
Thanks in advance
Hello to you all. I have been MIA because of school. It consumes all of my time. Ashton has already been to college a few times. He's going to be a whiz kid at the rate he is attending college. I am in senior classes and projects are CONSTANT. I like it but it is difficult with 2 little ones and being a non-traditional student makes it difficult for my classmates to understand (because they don't have families to take care of) and I am in a group with 4 other girls. I do the least work and it is all I can do to keep up with them. : A
my DH suggested what amounts to CIO. I told him: great, so she cries for the next half hour. What good does that do me? I can't sleep through that. I can at least doze out in the chair.
He just rolls his eyes at me for the bad habit.
I have to go on a business trip for 3 nights. I think he's worried he'll be out there doing that.
well, I am NOT superwoman today! I was miserable and sick and I had my housecleaner come tonight- wow, she did a beautiful job, I finally feel CLEAN! What a nice way to start the week!
barf, I just ate a huge peice of cake. woops.
So I think I forgot to mention last week, EVANGELINE GOT A TOOTH! woo hoo, actually she got two! perhaps a reason to all that nightwaking- and I should correct myself about the magical baby part- she's only magical when I put her down for naps or night, not in sleeping through anymore. This is her routine: rubs eyes, I bring her to her crib, soother and cover her up, she turns her head to the side, and she's alseep. Or the more complicated route, mmm, not quite tired, I'll play with this neat blanket for a bit'. I'm not bragging, in fact I find it almost eerie how easy she goes down, how many times have I stood there watching her and wondering if she was real? But the recent 3x night waking has made up for it!! Both Axel and I are sick, sick, sick, and I blame it on a comprimised immune system from lack of sleep!:
Poor Axel, this is him tonight, after we put him down to sleep. And keep in mind, he has adorable pronounciaton yet, like 'problem' is 'pwobwum' and 'scary' is 'stawy'. he says 't' for hard c's.
'Mommy, I want daddy' ( I was getting tea in the kitchen)
'Why do you want daddy, Axel? You need to go to sleep'
'Oh, I want daddy to come down'
'Ok Axel (I go into his room and sit on his bed), I'll get daddy, but tell me what's the matter'
'Oh, mommy, there was a big scary monster and I was scared'
'Oh. really. Well, Axel, I'll get daddy, but let me tell you something, monsters arent' real, they're just pretend'
'well, there's just one problem mommy'
'there was a monster'
'oh, really. ok, well, where was the monster?'
'in the kitchen'
'and what did the monster look like?'
'a frog. big and round. it was scary and I was scared when I was sleeping'
'oh. well, are you sure you weren't dreaming?'
'wellll, maybe I was dreaming'
ok, so maybe that doesn't translate well into type. sometimes I think things are funny and no one else does.: but it was cute that he was so sure he saw a monster, and he knew what it looked like. in a way I feel sad, though, I don't want him to be scared of things. and i liked, 'wew, deh's just one pwobwem mummy' he's not even 3!
ok, so anyone else have some awesome stories?
(i was wondering where montanamama was too)
So now I'm remebering a few things that happened in the church nursery yesterday (the first day we left him there). As we were checking him in a kid escaped! That made me a bit concerned! But then the funny thing that happened was they asked me when J would be hungry - I said "I don't know maybe 11:30" - just a guess pulled out of my butt So I noticed his number flash at exactly 11:30 and thought they must be paiging me because of the time but he was a little fussy when I walked in and they started going on and on about how great of a schedule he is on etc etc because he got hungry at exactly the time I said blah blah....I TOTALLY wanted to get into the idea that I don't believe in schedules - especially for feedings; but I decided better to keep my mouth shut.
