Sleepless Nights...and Days

Unfortunately we've been having a difficult time getting Matthew to sleep during the night as well as take his naps, thus there has not been any blogging for a couple of days. He had been doing fairly well, so we're not too sure about what's going on. Last night he woke up four times, the night before , seven! Because of all this I've been super tired. I have tried to nap when he's napping, but he's been waking up about every 20-30 minutes. It's driving me crazy! He could be going through a growth spurt and needing to eat more often, but I think that the bigger issue is that he's been sleeping in our bed. Since I'm right there next to him he's been snacking through the night instead of having a few larger feedings. We're trying to get him in his bassinet more often, and I may even try to put him down for his nap in his crib. I just can't see it getting much worse than it already is.

I'm still working on the Oz vest, but it's pretty slow going right now. I'm about halfway finished with the back. It's not a difficult pattern, so hopefully I'll be finished be the end of the weekend. The amount of knitting I get done depends on how much Matthew is able to sleep!

I borrowed my mom's digital camera, so hopefully there will be some new pics up soon!

Sleeping always seems to be an issue, doesn't it? Why can't they just be born knowing how to sleep well!?!? I hope Matthew's sleeping schedule takes a turn for the better!
