A late microblog post is better than not at all, right? Hey, it's still Monday here.
Rylee, Ayden, and I spent Saturday night at my in-laws. They went down for bed close to their normal bedtime and went to sleep fairly easy. It's been working out that one of the babies sleeps in a pack-n-play (pnp) in my in-laws room and the other sleeps in a pnp in the spare room, or with us depending on how many other people are spending the night. It worked out great last weekend having Ayden sleep in their room, so that's what we did this time too. However, this weekend, he woke up crying at 3:30 in the morning. I waited to see if he would calm down and go back to sleep. I didn't want to walk in on MIL calming him, only to have me interrupt and have him all upset again. He cried off and on for about 10 minutes, but then it turned into all out screaming, so I finally went in to save both mil and Ayden. (Grandpa was in Washington working on their new house) The poor guy was so upset, he just clung to me. Once he calmed down I tried taking him to bed with me, but when I turned to leave the room he started screaming again. We thought maybe he wanted his Grandma so I tried handing him to her, but he clung to me even more. I ended up just crawling into bed with MIL.
However, Ayden would not go back to sleep. At. All. I eventually moved into the living room with him and tried laying down on the couch to go to sleep. He was not into laying down. I turned on the Disney channel, hoping to at least distract him that way. It worked for about 15 minutes, but then he wanted to get down and play. OMGosh. I was so tired and just wanted to go to sleep! And of course their house isn't baby proofed at all, so I was constantly getting up to redirect him out of trouble, all while trying to keep him from also waking up Rylee and MIL.
Anyway, to micro this post and shorten the story, I still had my half day to myself going to watch a few softball games, but it really didn't seem like much of a break when I was dog tired from being up since 3:30am. If they didn't live 1.5 hours away, I would have driven home and taken a nap. Now THAT would have been glorious.
And of course, Ayden woke up this morning at 5:00. It's been between 5:00-5:30 for the last two weeks now (accept for the 3:30 wake up). That doesn't work very well for this night owl (me).
