Sunday I was going to post about how I thought we were turning over a new leaf with her after two fairly decent nights this weekend. Then, sadly, we took two steps backwards. Last night I was up until 3am with her. 3am! And then again at 5:30. She's congested but so far no other symptoms. Eli has a runny nose (and my throat hurts) so it's definitely just one dumb cold. I know it's no biggie but to this tired mama who doesn't have her middle-of-the-night helper husband, it seems quite overwhelming with everything else I'm trying to figure out with Annalee (more on all that later).
Someday we will turn over that leaf. Someday I will not be exhausted. Someday the big bro will get a mama with energy again. And someday she'll smile for real and not just in her sleep!
