It is 10 o' clock and I am sitting here feeling all conflicted.
I am tired, exhausted even, but can I go to sleep? Nope.
Why? Because there is so much anticipation to be had.
Will Obo sleep through the night tonight?
Will he wake wake up in just a couple hours?
When he wakes up in the night, I feel like I have just barely closed my eyes and then suddenly it's time to get up again.
I really dislike that feeling.
That is why I don't want to go to sleep right now.
Luckily, Obo has slept from 7:30 pm to 6 am several times now.
It hasn't been totally consecutive, but he has done it 3 nights in a row now.
This is amazing considering he is only 7 weeks old, but I can't help but question whether it will happen again tonight.
So...the staying-awake-even-though-I'm-tired-and-droopy-eyed continues.
I'll just have to stare at these cute smiley cheeks until I can't anymore...

Over and out.


  1. I remember that feeling....almost anxiety?? Yeah, that's going to be me here in a few weeks.~

  2. For me it's: "If I go to bed now, will a thunderstorm/dog/etc. wake me up? If I don't go to sleep now, will I be hear the alarm in the morning? Will I be late for seminary/school? Will I have enough energy to make it through the day?" That does it! I can't sleep now.
