Wanted by the mommy police

**WANTED**
for not sleeping and unnecessary grumpiness



Max was being so cranky today! He wouldn't really sleep and he was crying and fussing all day. I normally can calm him down and get him to go down for some nice long naps. Not today. I had to have a mommy time out and let him cry and even scream. He was not happy about it. I've never been able to let him scream like that but I needed to get into the shower and I needed a break.
Finally sometime late afternoon I decided to take him for a car ride and see if I couldn't get him to sleep. He screamed at first and then........sweet silence. Then he started to cry again. Then......sweet silence. Finally he had to be sleeping. I drive home get out of the car and look in on him. This is what I find.......


Max not sleeping!!

I bring him inside and hope he will just fall asleep in the car seat. He was being really mellow at this point. here he is getting sleepy eyed.


Finally after a little fussing he falls asleep




Finally I think he's into a deep sleep because he has let the Binky fall from his mouth


I can finally get something done. I start to pick up the house when only 15 minutes later he's up and crying again!! This is what he's been doing all day. Falling asleep then waking up a short time later and being really cranky! He wanted me to hold him all day and even then he was still grumpy.
I feed him and he falls asleep on my chest. Yes!! I leave him on my chest to sleep for about a half and hour and make sure he is in a deep sleep. He hasn't moved and he is breathing really heavy. I then take him into his room and lay him so softly into his crib. I was really hungry and needed to eat. I put him down in his crib and this happens.........


He completely wakes up!! AHHHHHH!!!
My plan now is to try and keep him up until 7:00pm and I will give him a bath and put him to bed at 8:00pm and hope he will sleep really good tonight. Of course, Because I want him to stay awake he starts completely falling asleep!!
I finally give him his bath and get him to sleep on my chest and I was finally able to put him in his crib and he has been sleeping!! Yippee!! Will see how tonight and tomorrow are. One day at a time with a little baby.
It's a good thing he gives me these cute smiles. Makes everything all better! I wish I could capture on camera his really big smile! I have not been able to get a picture of it yet. His smiles really make my day! Keep smiling for mommy!! She loves them! And your cute dimples.
