With that said I can start my post.....
I've been blessed with babies that are good sleepers. Both girls from day one only woke up once in the middle of the night to nurse then would go right back to sleep. This really just happened. I did nothing to get them to sleep this well this early. It was a blessing and I am so thankful!!!
Both girls also, by 7 weeks, were sleeping through the night, 8+ hours. They both sleep well for naps too (well, Haven does, Jericho doesn't really nap any more but she has rest time. She actually rests quietly & stays on her bed!) But this
Why all this talk about sleep & babies well because even though I have some stick-to-it methods that have worked for us, sometimes ya just gotta rock the baby and forget all the rules.
Today was one of those days. Thus far both of my girls have gone in phases between being laid down and falling right to sleep or being laid down and fussing themselves to sleep. The later of the two is much rarer but it does happen.
I'm just now noticing that when I'm in a spiritually sensitive phase and my babes are in one of their fuss themselves to sleep stages, I have a hard time with it. Normally a baby crying/fussing themselves to sleep, when I know their are tired, doesn't phase me in the least. I'm good at tuning them out till I realize all quite and I wonder how long my sweet babe has been asleep. But this is not the case when my spirit is super sensitive. I have such a hard time letting the baby cry. It's funny because it also seems like when I'm super sensitive my baby's always tend to be fussier. I wonder is it because they can sense something too? Do they need a little more lovin and reassurance? Or is that the Lord knows that it's ME that needs the reassurance, o he makes my babe a little fussier because He knows a sweet baby snug in my arms always calms my spirit. No matter what the reason I must admit I tremendously enjoy it when sometimes ya just gotta rock the baby! Today we've been a rockin!
