We put Caleigh down at 9:30 last night and she slept until about 1:30. I nursed her for about 45 minutes and then she slept for another two hours at which point I nursed her again for about 20 minutes. She woke up at 5:30, hungry, and I was exhausted. I had some pumped milk in the fridge so I asked my husband (who has today off from work) to warm it up and take "this feeding". At 6:30 he walked back into the bedroom with Caleigh completely exhausted and overwhelmed.
"She won't go back to sleep!" he tells me.
"So?" I ask and promptly roll back over considering he's in charge of the baby right now.
He walks back out of the room as I sleep for another twenty minutes and finally put him out of his misery at that point. I got up, nused her (she had only taken a couple of ounces by the bottle and was hysterical), changed her diaper, walked around with her, took the dog outside, got the dog his breakfast, etc. at which point she fell back asleep. Put her in her swing in teh bedroom, left note for DH stating I was going out for my run, ran, came back adn lifted weights for half an hour and then finally at 9:00 he emerges from the bedroom. Completely exhausted b/c he had "to be up with her for an hour earlier this morning".
WHAT?!?!? I usually get up at 5:30 with her for the day after having fed her at least once if not twice throughout the night! And he's tired after being up with her for an hour and then going back to bed for TWO MORE?!?!?
Ha ha ha ha ha....men are too funny.
