Tired of Being Tired!

I haven't had a good nights rest for over 4 months now. I am so tired of being tired! When I lay down at night I don't even have time to think about what I'm doing tomorrow because I'm already asleep. Every night when I wake up to Katelee's crying I pray that it is like 5:00am, but it never is. Usually I think its 2:45 only to find out its 12:45! The other night I got five straight hours and woke up feeling good, but by the afternoon I was exhausted and wanted to lay down. I sit at work and think of things to do to keep me awake! Luckily my husband helps me out at night by taking the 6:00am feeding. That way I get to at least sleep till 6:30 or 7. Poor Chris is exhausted as well. He used to stay up pretty late watching TV. Now we are in bed at the same time and he is asleep right behind me! Darius Rucker has a song out that talks about "it won't be like this for long." I know eventually I'll look back on this and smile, but right now it seems like there is no end in sight, and it's going to be like this FOREVER!!!! (oh course that is just the lack of sleep talking) :)

I do not miss that stage when babies don't sleep through the night. I am a bear when I don't get good sleep. So everyone suffers when I am sleep deprived. Cooper was great and slept through the night at 2 months and so did braxten but he would about every other week have bad nights and it about drove me insane. And for your post above I hope I don't get kids like me. They will be so stubborn and two stubborns don't go well together:)
