this is getting ridiculous

Can you tell we're all running on too little sleep around here?

Ryan put Sawyer's pajama pants backwards and inside out this morning when he changed him.

Sawyer was up from 3am to about 5:30am again. Ryan got up and went downstairs to sleep at about 4 just so he could get some sleep before work. I really don't know what is going on with that kid.
Then he was up at his usual 7am this morning. And of course falling apart by the end of the morning. I finally put him down for a nap by 11:30. And guess who was awake and yelling in his room again by 1 o'clock (I don't know where this yelling/screaming/howling in his crib came from so suddenly)? Arghhh!!!! Something tells me it's going to be a long afternoon...

Well, at least he's eating more. How much more you ask? Here's what he ate for all of yesterday...
  • less than one half of a banana (breakfast)
  • six fig newtons (am snack)
  • a handful of green beans at dinner (first time in a loooong time, yay!)
  • a cupful of pretzel sticks before bed
And today...
  • a cupful of cereal for breakfast
  • ummm, would take nothing for lunch so I guess that's it
And yes, that's actually much better than it's been the last few weeks. Sad, isn't it?!

Also, just thought I'd share I've been chuckling to myself...
the Mother's Day picture we took yesterday, I thought, turned out rather well of all of us. Both the kids actually looking at the camera and smiling!
Well, then the more I look at it, the more I notice Savannah's eyes. Or lack thereof. She has her Daddy's squinty-eye syndrom. LOL! When they really smile, their eyes disappear. She looks in that picture like she could have been adopted from China!
Okay, I've probably ruined that picture now. I just thinks it's pretty funny. That kid really has the biggest eyes... it's amazing how they can totally disappear when she smiles!

Well,I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better.(I think at this point only sleep can do that.)I will pray that both the "sleeplessness" AND the NO EATING will come to a stop ASAP!!!Hopefully this will soon be just be a(n unpleasant)memory.Yeah Savannah did smile away her pretty eyes in that picture,but she is still a doll.(China doll?)Love you lot's!

Sorry to admit it, but even though I am not a big fan of the squinty eyes for any of us, I also like it because it gives my kids and grandkids a mark of identification as part of our side of the family. I have never been able to figure out where it came from, but I am definitely the source and I am not sure either of my parents really had is a mystery! I love the photo of all of you & especially Savannah's huge smile! :)
