There must have been something in the air last night. I could not fall asleep for the life of me. I became sick this weekend, so all I wanted to do was go to bed early. Per my alarm I was going to get a good 6 hours 30 minutes before waking up. I ended up going to the couch in the middle of the night because I was still awake. I tried everything. Deep breathing, focusing on my breathing, counting to clear my mind. I finally fell asleep around 1am. I woke up to my alarm at 3:45am. I remembered in my dream I was having a hard time sleeping. So, not only did I have a hard time falling asleep, but once I did I dreamt that I couldn’t fall asleep as well. Good Lord!
I got Alex up at his normal time for a bottle at 4:25. He could not fall back asleep either. I felt bad, but I had to wake up Paul at 5:50 to take over so I could get in the shower for work. Everyone asks me why I wake up so early, this is the reason. It doesn’t happen too often anymore, but every so often it takes Alex a while to get back to sleep. I try to do my best to get him down so I don’t have to wake Paul up early.
I am thinking we will need to take a nice long walk tonight after work so both Alex and I can get a good night’s sleep tonight. Here’s to hoping we all catch some ZZZZZ’s this evening!
