A Rude Awakening


One might say our son hasn't been sleeping well at night lately...that is, unless you consider waking up at all hours and intervals of the night "well." Needless-to-say, Luke and I are pretty tired by the time morning rolls around.

But what exactly is morning?

I think Augustine may be in disagreement with his parents on thise one...and according to a reliable source (one of countless baby books I enjoy reading), Augustine may be right!

Apparently, babies need 10-12 hours of sleep each night. So if we put Augustine to bed around 7:30 pm, we cannot be too put out when he wants to wake up for the day at 5:30 am! Yikes! Up until this point, he has been more on the 11-12 hour side of things, but Luke experienced first hand the 9 1/2 hour side of things Tuesday morning when Augustine got up at 4:45 am! Luckily for me, my wonderful husband gets up with the little man each morning so I can sleep in for a bit--I don't know if Luke thought his act of chivalry would include 4:45 am duty (even I would have thrown that in with "middle of the night Mom duty"), but if the book says it, who am I to argue??

Hopefully, it was just a fluke and Augustine will go back to sleeping in a bit more!

**Just to update, it WAS a fluke, and Augustine has not been up that early again! Good news for Luke...**
