A portrait of sleep in my family every week in 2018

We’re all sick here again, which is super fun. I swear we can’t go much longer than a month without bringing something home. This little one seems to be hit the hardest this time. We spent the entirety of what appeared to be a beautiful day inside, on the couch, watching movies. I’m really hoping things get better quickly, as I’ve sort of had it with sickness this year and it’s making me feel pretty crazy.

That’s a giant mosquito bite on her cheek. It matches the three on her right arm, two on her left, three on her right leg and four on her feet.

If she wakes up before the baby, her first request is to go wake up her sister.

This little girl thinks she’s a tiny grown up sometimes and uses pillows. She even sleeps with determination.

They want to go to sleep in the same bed (which is sometimes mine), but they end up waking each other up constantly over night.

They continue to end up sleeping in the same bed. I often find myself wanting to just let them stay sleeping together, but find worry it will end in one of them screaming, considering how much they both move around in their sleep. Once the baby nurses less over night (because she still thinks she needs to nurse a billion times every night) I plan to have them sleep together but I don’t think they’re quite ready yet. It sure is cute for the amount of time I let them.

I felt like sleep was going relatively well this past week, until the five year old woke us all up before 7am on a Sunday.

This poor sweet girl managed to catch the virus that landed her sister in the hospital last week (I posted more about our hospital stay over on instagram). Somehow it hit her even harder than it did the kid who ended up inpatient. She was up for four hours straight in the middle of the night for three nights in a row. I literally felt like I was going crazy around 1am on night three. I’ve still yet to catch this, but at least I won’t be sick at the same time as either of them. Sickness is weird and it sucks. Even when you’re not a heart kid.
