Sleep and stuff with Jude

So it's official. I am done doing the dream feed. Woohoo! Freedom! Jude wasn't sleeping through the night anyway, so I didn't feel like I had anything to lose.
Wouldn't you know it?
He starts sleeping through the night! What up with that?
For the past 4 (5?) nights he has slept through the night. He'll often stir for about 5 or so minutes around 11pm but then go back to sleep. It's amazing. Last night he did wake up at 5:30 so I thought I'd feed him since it was close enough to morning. He went back to sleep until 8am which was lovely.
Last night I went to bed at 9:30. 9:30, people! Jamie asked me if I was 12 years old as I lay in bed at 9:30 with a big smile on my face.

Other than that, Jude's attachment is growing more and more intense. It's a bit frustrating to be quite honest. The second he sees me, he's fussing and whining to be with me, even if he was happy as a lark before. Luckily I can still leave him with other people at the church or the Y and he's fine (unlike with Noah). I'm hoping that won't change!
I know it's quite normal and we'll move past it eventually...but the whining is driving me quite batty. It's likely his teeth bothering him as well (the top two are on their way in!) so I know it's not ALL him just being a little punk.


  1. you are not alone in this. Eli has gotten worse and worse as the past few weeks have gone on. he'll be so happy playing and then I walk in the room, or he hears my voice from another room and he goes ballistic and won't calm down until I pick him up. ah...motherhood. the joys! the trials...we'll survive!

  2. Well at least I'm not alone. While it does kinda suck, it's good to know someone else is in the same place as me. :)


I love hearing from you!
