Homecomeing, Disapointments, and Lack of Sleep, what a way to spend a weekend!

Have you ever been looking forward to something so much that it is all you can think about then at the very last minute it blows up in your face! Well that was my last weekend. OSU's Homecoming was Oct 18th and me and some other friends had planed on meeting in Stillwater to hang out for the day. Let me tell you I was ever so excited about this. I loved my years in Stillwater mainly due to my friends there and the memories we made together and the thought of being able to hang out with some of them again just pleased me to no end. Me and Josh had planed on driving up to Oklahoma and spending the weekend with family and friends. Well at the last minute our friend that has the only house in Stillwater where we where all going to hang out at decided to go to the game leaving the rest of us to fend for ourselves. Well not having anywhere to go and not wanting to bum around Stillwater with nothing to do I was rather upset with the change of plans. And yes I did shed quit a bit of tears over it. But it wasnt a total bust of a trip. I was able to meet up with one of my old roommates and we where able to hang out for a while, but like me her plans where all screwed up by the change as well. Getting to atleast see her was a bright spot in my weekend. Since it was Homecoming weekend I had packed a lot of OSU clothes for Zeke so over the course of the weekend I was also able to get some really good pictures.

It also didnt help matters that I hadnt really gotten to sleep in about 3 nights. Zeke has recently learned that he loves rolling from his back to his tummy. Though rolling from his tummy to his back he has decided that he doesnt like doing. So when he rolls onto his tummy he then starts to complain that he is on his tummy and doesnt like it! This mainly occures at night..Roll onto tummy..relize he doesnt like it...complain till mom comes and rolls him over. The other irritating part of this is that while he is on his tummy and unhappy he buries his head into his mattress. He doesnt turn his head to the side to complain or to BREATH no he puts it straight down into the mattress and leaves it there. And let me tell you how much this terrifies me! It is like he is trying to sufficate himself..SO with him complaining, me having to get up to roll him over and also the fear of his sufficating himself...I havnt slept much. So last night I placed a throw pillow on his bed next to him so he couldnt roll over and that seemed to work really well. Yeah I know everyone says dont put pillows in the crib with them but I am at my wits ends on trying to think of a way to help him since he is bound and determined not to roll back over himself. And believe me I have tried leaving him there to see if he would do it himself...Oh no...he just lays there with his head in the mattress complaining..it is really quite pathetic. And I know that I am being over protective and over reacting but I just cant help it! Hopefully soon he will pick up that he should roll himself over and I will once again be able to sleep at night!

You're not the only one... I was terrified when Addison started rolling over and mashing her face into the mattress. It seems logical that she would turn her head... but no. They learn pretty fast though and you shouldn't have to worry for long! I think I had the whole bible study praying for her and me during that time! Now there's over-protective mom for you. :)

I'm sorry your weekend wasn't quite what you thought it was going to be. The pictures sure look cute though!

I had a similar situation with Rylie when he was a baby. He wouldn't sleep unless he was on this tummy. And everyone tells you not to let them do it, but after two months of me not sleeping...I gave it. I even went out and bought one of those really expensive baby monitors that starts beeping horribly loud when the baby stops breathing because it freaked me out so much. Actually, I still have it packed away and you are more than welcome to borrow it if you think it would help you sleep better. There are so many "rules" with newborns, but I learned fast that all those "rules" are impossible to follow. Which was hard for me, as I pride myself on following rules. Anyway, what I'm trying to say...you'll figure out what works for you and your family. Don't worry so much about what society says and trust yourself as a mom...and pray a lot!
