I think I might be a b*@#% today! So please don't mess with me in any way. Seriously, you can't blame a person who is sleep deprived. I am desperate for my once uninterrupted sleep in the night when skies are dark, lights are off and all sweet little babies go to bed and sleep soundly throughout the night. That did happen to me a couple of months ago. Yes, I was in bliss. And I need that back soon.

Allysa has been waking up frequently in the nights. She will get up, flop over the other side of her cot, bury her face in her blankie and remain still for a few moments before she start this sequence all over again. Usually, that is accompanied by bouts of cries in frustration. It seems like she was telling me "Mom, I am tired and I want to sleep but my body seem to wake up and tossy turvy all by itself. Help me, please!" I sense that. Sometimes, rocking helps to put her back to sleep. Other times, a bottle of milk helps because I always associate her waking up to hunger (which is true some times).
So this morning, I think it's high time I need to find out the "why". With my mommy instinct, I guess it is most likely associated with her recent spurt in mobile development. This frequent nightly wake-ups happened around when she was learning to crawl. And boy, was I right. I went to my trusted baby information portal - BabyCenter.com and found my answer there. (click here for the article) Apparently, I just have to DEAL with it.
"Loser, accept your poor fate. This is the challenge that every great, noble moms have to go through. Please put yourself up to the test and stop whining!" Ok, I got it. Thanks!

Such happening is a norm for most babies so I am not alone. So in the far corners of the world, there are women like me who are praying hard for this ordeal to be over soon. We are as desperate as it get. I am as far as almost adding maybe a teeny weeny drop of "sleeping potion" to help my baby (and me)get a good night sleep.

Ok, I am just kidding.
