Dear Noah:



The last few nights you have had a hard time sleeping and falling asleep. OR STAYING asleep! The night before last you got up in the middle of the night and said you were hot....needed a fan......needed a brighter nightlight......after a short time I got you re-situated back in bed.

LAST night around 11:30 p.m. you got back up .....crying.......saying you were starving! You had told me earlier around 9:00 (ONE hour before bed) you were hungry but I said that was too close to bed to eat M&Ms (your preferred SNACK). I told you if you were hungry you could eat real food or crackers this close to bed. You chose NOT to. SO here you came at 11:30 p.m. crying saying you were STARVING and needed a snack. I was so mad.....but can understand if you were hungry how bad that is trying to fall asleep HUNGRY. I said you could have crackers or a bowl of bananas...your sometimes in-between food when you are torn on what to eat. YOU QUICKLY accepted the Gerber Stage 3 bananas......and inhaled them like there was no tomorrow. Back to pee and into bed and you were sound asleep pretty quickly!

THIS CANNOT keep happening and I do hope and pray it is not a new trend or phase you are going to start going through.

I love you anyway.......oh...yesterday you got your first traffic light for your collection. I gave you a traffic light LAMP which you love. If we switch the bulbs out to non-blinking you could use that for a better nightlight at night....though it may distract you too much.

love you

mommy

Sometimes it shocks me to read your posts and know that you are out there living with a son so similar to mine. Harry also has been pulling the "starving routine" late at night. He has also just started twisting and twirling his hair again. I will have to try the elastics...

Sleep is overrated right?
