Mr. Sandman bring me a dream.......
















So my cute little newborn has never really seemed like a newborn. Size wise she has but she is so alert all the time. Here she is laying in her crib before bedtime. She seriously has her eyes open like this all the time just looking around. The bad side of that is....SHE NEVER SLEEPS. Not a good sleeper at all. You would think even during the day she would but not really. I am so tired all the time and can't even take naps during the day. At night she wakes up and eats and you think she is sound asleep, so you go put her down and get all nestled back in my bed. I am so comfortable and half asleep and then there it is WAAAAAAAAA WAAAAAAAAAA! And I am up again. So needless to say I am trying all different things to try and keep her to sleep. I guess it's a good thing she is so dang cute. On a happier note she smiled at me for the first time yesterday, it was so sweet. I know that she knows me and that is so neat. She is also starting to coo now too, I just love her.

PS for those of you know that don't know what the title of my blog is supposed to mean, it is a song that was on the movie Uncle Buck (for those who haven't seen it you should it's hilarious) and the song plays during a part in the movie when the kids are in and out of bed and uncle buck can't sleep. So I think of this song a lot since I am not sleeping. And I would like a dream because when you have dreams that means you are sleeping which is something I haven't done for awhile; dreaming and sleeping!

Awww, she is just so dang cute and sweet. Of course, you probably aren't thinking that at 2, 3, and 4o'clock in the morning. It's fun when they start to smile at you, and remember why they are so worth it!!

I hear ya on the "no sleeping" thing. As I'm sure you've forgotten, eventually it DOES get better. But I'm so with you on the whole cycle of it all!
