Most days they get me up at 4:30-5am. I know. It’s technically still night time.
I average about 5 cups of coffee a day.
Where Riley is a peaceful, snuggly sleeper when she comes into our bed, Piper is a wriggly thrashy one.
I know people who are actually sleep deprived. I am not sleep deprived. But I like sleep. And I miss it. I miss being able to sleep in one stretch.
I’m not really sure but Piper usually wakes up about 3 times per night. I”m not really sure because if she wakes up when I’m going to bed I’ll just bring her in with me and then she will probably wake up a few times and I’ll put her dummy back in but I don’t really remember. And sometimes she just can’t settle in our bed so I’ll get up, put her in her bed and sometimes she’ll go straight to sleep, sometimes it takes awhile.
Eventually she will sleep through the night. I am waiting for that.
So different from Riley who needed so much help to get to sleep but slept for a whole lot longer at a stretch. Riley slept through at 14 months once she was able to go to sleep on her own. Piper goes to sleep on her own so there’s nothing left but to wait for her to figure the rest out.
The longest stretch of sleep she has had was probably from about 10:30 to 2:30 a few times. Still if I had a choice between hard to get to sleep but staying asleep and easy to get to sleep and waking frequently I still think I’d pick the latter.
In the meantime I’ll be waiting with my coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
