Early morning woes

I should never say anything ever about Gibson's sleeping habits.

Because once I say something about how well he's doing, he decides to be a turd and get worse again.

He has been waking up around 6:00 every morning.

Two mornings ago, Gibson's shrieks woke us up at 5:45 and I decided that "THIS IS RIDICULOUS! HE CAN'T WAKE UP!"

So I made a PLAN.  I would give him milk, put him in his bed, and make him sleep for another hour.  PERFECT!

I stumbled around the house looking for his milk (it was in the refrigerator, of course).  When I finally found the milk, I stumbled into his room.

Gibson was standing by the door waiting for someone to release him from his cage of misery.  It was a struggle to keep him from running out of the room, but I'm slightly stronger than him, so it all worked out.

I picked him up while he shrieked and tried to kick me, and we sat in his glider.  He would take a drink of milk and then scream a lot.  And then drink, then scream.  And so on.

Gibson finally calmed down.  Thank goodness.  We snuggled.  He drooled on me.

But then I took him to his bed.  Cue tantrum.

So I laid on the floor next to his mattress while he calmed himself down.  And then I started to fall asleep.  BUT HIS EYES WOULD NOT SHUT.

Seriously.  He was trying as hard as possible to keep them open.  They would start to close, and he would pop them open as big as possible and look around really fast.

Unfortunately, Gibson never fell back asleep.  Instead, he laid there quietly and pointed at things around the room.  And stared at me creepily.

For real, though.  So creepy.  Even though I love him.

Let's all pray that Gibson starts sleeping late again.  But until he does, we're back to very early bedtimes.  Because he wakes up at 6:00 whether he goes to sleep at 7:00 or 8:00, and I would prefer that he get the extra sleep!

Also, it's raining and I'm sleepy.  I think nap time will include mommy today!  Hooray!
