But I didn't think it was gonna happen to us. By it I mean the "4 month, I forgot how to sleep at night" syndrome. If you've been keeping up, you know that Isla June has been sleeping 9-12 hours at night since she was 10 weeks old. It has been wonderful! And as some of ya'll know, I started back at work full time as of Oct.1st (that's where I've been instead of blogging, sorry!) So this isn't really great timing....mommy's exhausted. But, I must say, it's not as bad as it could be. She is still sleeping between 6-9 hours in a stint. I've heard of some babies that regress back to what they did as infants, or worse! So, I'm not complaining too loud, yet. I'm just soooooooo sleepy......
On a good note, Aunt Jeanne has moved in with us to keep Isla June (Yay!) I could not be happier, more relieved, excited, overjoyed, at ease, peaceful (enough adjectives?) about this decision. She is a blessing to us and has made this whole "go back to work" transition so much easier.
Also, IJJ started dayschool (2 days a week for 3 hours). She did great, but she was way off schedule. So, I gave teachers a heads up about what we do at home, so hopefully that will help. But, it is only 6 hours a week, so I don't think it's going to do that much harm.
Anywho, we've got a great team around us, Isla June is so blessed. I do miss her so much and I can already see where the mom guilt comes from. Glad we did the cry it out when I was at home (she now can put herself to sleep about 80% of the time- angel!). But, I am happy to be back at work. It really is a constant pull. I don't know how we moms do it, I don't think dads quite understand it all.
