I don't seem to be posting much lately and when I have it seems like it has taken a lot of effort to make it happen. I'm behind on reading my favorite blogs and so many great posts have deserved comments but I haven't left any. I think the reason is that I am just tired. There is no doubt, however, as to why I am so tired. My beautiful baby is also a rather difficult one. Not only is he not making much progress on the eating front, but he also isn't sleeping well. He used to sleep very well. At least he did until his long bout with illness in January and February. Since then he has been waking 3 or 4 times a night and is very difficult to get to sleep for naps. Usually I have to nurse him to sleep and then he'll only stay asleep if he continues to nurse through the entire nap. I feel like I have a newborn rather than an almost one year old and I don't know how to make it better.
So, please excuse my only sporadic appearances in the blogosphere these days. And, if you have a moment, offer a little prayer for me. Any prayers for patience, wisdom or fortitude would be greatly appreciated!
