Sleepin' and poopin'
Harper has been kind of difficult. He is very, very clingy towards me. I am basically not allowed to NOT hold him. The last couple days have been the worst. He will not fall asleep unless hes laying on me. The past two nights I've had to go to bed holding him. (Yeah, yeah, dangerous, I know.) Its so uncomfortable. My body hurts. And then he grunts, constantly, all night long and it keeps me awake...all night long. The other day I gave up and left him by Spencer and went and slept on the couch for 2 hours from 3-5. This morning at like 6:30 when Spencer left I decided FUCK IT ILL GET UP and we went and laid on the couch. Thankfully we did fall asleep for an hour then. I woke up at 7:15 and he was sound asleep next to me so I decided to try and move him to his swing...NOPE. He was up and yelling at me by the time I got two steps away.
My mom today said it was because I spoiled him too much and I need to just let him cry more. I dont know. I dont think you can spoil a baby. And Alikah didnt stop sleeping with me until she was 6 months. But then again shes always been an amazing sleeper and she didnt GRUNT in my ear in her sleep lol.
I have no problem with letting babies "cry it out" but I just feel like Harper is still too young for that.
But I dont want him to get too used to this because it really is exhausting for me.
Also, I dont enjoy being peed on every.single.day.
And it amazes me how many times he can fart and poop in one day.
He farts LOUD. Its so weird that that can come from such a little guy.
Hes lucky hes so damn cute.
