Gideon has such great, unsensored self-confidence. He cheers for himself when he finishes building a tower with his stacking cups. Then when he knock it down he cheers again. He is so adorable. I love watching him play.......even if he should be taking a nap right now and not awake playing. It's 1:30pm, and he usually wakes up from his nap around 2pm....but today he refuses to sleep. I'm hoping to get him to nap soon so I can finish cleaning and get to project night at my church. I am REALLY excited to start putting my boys new quilts together. Eveything is all cut out so I just have to sew my heart out.
On another no sleeping note, Ayla is having a rough day. Last night she rolled over every two hours and woke herself up. I fed her back to sleep each time because I didn't want to deal with the crying. I should have just dealt with it though, because I am so exhausted today. She ate at 9pm, 12am, 1:50am, 3:30am, 5:30am, and got up for the day at 8am. She did the same rolling over thing again for each nap today, so she's only slept about 30 minutes since 8am. Tonight I'm thinking about letting her sooth herself to sleep because I just don't have the energy to be up with her so much. I have other kids to have energy for too.......I know this part of my life will pass eventually, and perhaps some day I will miss having babies to take care of........but today I wish all of my kids were old enough to be in school.
