Mommy Musings | Hey Baby, This is Crazy

I cried when Jethro turned one on Wednesday. It wasn't because my baby is growing up so fast (although he is). The reason I cried was because, "My baby's one and he still doesn't sleep through the night!" My honesty will inevitably result in a dozen e-mails from sleep experts wanting to help for a pretty penny. We're working on it.

Despite the sleep challenges, it is impossible not to be in love with Jet. First of all, just look at those eyes.  His personality is emerging every day. He loves to clown around with buckets, bowls and hats on his head. Today he started walking, not just a few steps but across the entire room. I'm stunned that I have a three year old and a one year old. When did this happen!? 


  1. Oh my gosh he is cute! Hope your little one let you have a good nights sleep real soon!
    Lovely to meet you last night... Catherine

  2. I think it is more normal than we think that babies don't sleep solid through the night for hours upon hours. My first was a frequent wake up baby..up until 15 months when something changed and he just literally went for longer stretches on his own until it was a 12 hour gig. Your little guy is sure a sweetie and I love all his digging photos!

  3. Andrea, I'm so encouraged by this. I feel like I'm doing something wrong sometimes.
