Sleep, sweet sleep

Since March 3rd Micah has been up at least every 3 hours, if not all night, for food and to fuss for a while. The swing has become his "3am bed" and the couch the resting place of Mike or I once he's up for a while.

Not only that, but I have been sick and a very sore throat set in with it yesterday. Exhaustion kicked in and my body's ability to fight this off weakened. I'm pretty sure it's the same thing I had in Ukraine. I don't think I ever fought it off all the way.

But the good news is that last night at 8pm little Micah went to sleep and now it is 7:15am and although two little girls were singing sleepy songs to each other in their room, the boys' room is still quiet with only the soft sounds of breathing. Micah slept ALL NIGHT.

I hope this means his stomach is settling, his time-clock is changing, and our routine is setting in. We switched him over to soy formula about 3 days ago and it has made a huge difference with his level of fussiness during the day.

Sleep... I have missed you!


  1. Hi Meredith, Sorry to hear you're not feeling well, this sounds like the six week influenza that's been going around the UK. The good news is it doesn't seem to be that contagious during the last few weeks of it. I would recommend sambucol. We use it and it actually does prevent and shorten illness. It boosts your immunity. you might have heard about it in the news because it has been proven to fight bird flue as well. Hope you're better soon we sent you an email the other day.
    Love Lu and Wiliam
