The Ragged Edge
Having a baby is, without a doubt, a most wonderful event. We love our beautiful Little Bird more than words can say. However, there are times when it is really tough. For some reason she has been having trouble sleeping lately, and it's becoming increasingly difficult for everyone in our house. For several weeks she was waking only once per night, and that seemed like a most acceptable arrangement given that she is still so little. Last week we switched to twice per night, but that too was fairly manageable. Then, last night, she was up every two hours without fail. I am completely exhausted, and even M is starting to fray. We're not sure what is causing the nocturnal troubles, but we're really really hoping they end soon. Otherwise, I'm afraid the loss of maternal brain function may become permanent.
