I am beginning to wonder if I will ever sleep again. I know I know, it’s all part of a new baby. I just don’t remember it being this bad the first time around. I do think that the loss of sleep is probably the hardest part of being a mom, although maybe having sick kids is worse. But sick kids most of the time results in more sleep loss….it’s a vicious cycle. As cute as those big blue eyes are, I really don’t want to see them at 2 a.m.
So, I think I’m going to be giving up dairy again. I’m very disappointed. Gideon seemed to be doing fine at first but now I’m not so sure. He isn’t pooping regularly, going days with just wet diapers. I really don’t think that’s normal. And when I gave up dairy for James he started pooping every day. I’m trying to decide if I should start right away, or wait until the end of the week. I was very motivated with James because he cried all the time, but this time I’m lacking motivation. Gideon is a much happier baby then James was so I’m not sure if his tummy is hurting or not. There are times when I wonder if it is. If I knew he was in pain I’d start right away. The truth is, I really don’t want to. Mommy hood is hard enough without adding a new diet to the list. I don’t want to give up cheese, and chocolate, and ice cream. sigh. But I will….because that’s what mommies do for their little ones.
