The Early Bird Gets The... Sleepy Mama!

Aubrey has decided that she's going to torture her mother by getting up at the crack of dawn now. Lately, she's been getting up at 7:30, which is a little early for me, but definitely doable. But yesterday that all changed. She woke up at 5:50 AM. I thought, you have got to be kidding me!! It's barely even daylight! I prayed it was just a fluke, but today she did the same thing. Well, actually I take that back. She cried out at 5:50, but then decided she'd have mercy on me and wait to officially wake up at 6:10. How kind of her. I'm not a morning person at all, so this is tough. Thank goodness my sweet husband gets up at the crack of dawn every day too, so he's been feeding her and entertaining her for me until he has to get ready to leave for work (or until we all had to get ready for church yesterday). That buys me a little more sleep. I know I probably sound so lazy, but I got so spoiled because Aubrey used to sleep so late. These days she's been up, had a bottle, played, eaten solids, played some more, and is waking from her morning nap about the time she used to get up for the day! I'm praying this is just a short little phase. Or maybe she's really teething this time. David says if we keep saying that, one of these days it's going to be true. I don't know what I'm going to blame every little fuss on after she gets her teeth! All I know is that this mama is looking forward to nap time :o)

Ugh you know I'm not a morning person either! I'm hoping this is a phase, for your sake. Even 8 am would be doable...

I hope this is just a phase and you can go back to sleeping in!

Are you serious? There's a 5:50 in the MORNING?!!!

Just kidding. I have a baby myself, and I know all about the many long, dark, cruel hours of the night.

Saw you on Blogfrog!

saw your comment on my blog and thought I'd check yours out :)

I know how you feel. My little man often decides to start his day before the sun, and I am most definitely not a morning person!

Thank goodness for naps!!!
