We are currently transitioning Alden to her crib.

To say I am tired is a huge understatement. I knew it would be rough, but maybe I forgot how rough it would actually be? She pretty much doesn’t sleep ever…. for example, see this text that I sent to myself last night every time I woke up with her:

Her room is right next to Landon’s so I don’t really want to let her scream and cry because he has school in the mornings. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but truth of the matter is this sucks. I’m exhausted and she’s exhausted. We both don’t get a good nights sleep so we’re both struggling the whole next day.

I even googled “sleep doctor for babies” last night at 4 am. Yes, I will pay you $600 to come to my house and help this kid sleep cus I’m losing my mind.

Just kidding. Kind of.

It’s been a week as of tonight, so here’s hoping she starts to feel more comfortable in there.

Why yes, those are awful bags/black circles under my eyes. Thanks for noticing! I love this little girl more than I ever imagined possible. Even while she screams in my face my heart bursts with love. I’m so thankful to have had the chance to make her; to choose her specifically. I love you Alden. You’re growing up so fast. Stop!

  1. I’m sorry, Randi! It sounds like you’re exhaustipated: too tired to give a shit. They just have such a hard time transitioning from light sleep back to deep sleep. I wish I could come and give you a night off! Though I don’t think there is every really such a thing for mom’s.

    • You are so sweet!! I agree. Too tired to give a shit is a very good way to put it! I think we need a super nanny to come watch all our kids so we can all go to a fancy hotel and sleep on amazing beds in peace and quiet 😂👍🏼
