A Sleepy Baby
Our infant must want to be a rock star. Our first child mostly sleeps all day. Our baby raises a ruckus all night long. An odd aspect is that when aunts, uncles, great uncles, and cousins are over wanting to interact with baby, baby sleeps like a rock. When we parents are desperate for rest, the baby produces ear-shattering noise worthy of a German death metal band. My poor wife is sleeping about two hours a night. I am thankful for four or five hours of rest. I have taken to occupying the living room couch to avoid the baby and the dog, who suddenly likes to occupy my half of the bed. I never realized how refreshing a good night's sleep was until I lost the chance to sleep through the night.
