It's 4 am

It's 4 O'Clock in the morning.


Sleep eludes me.


As I toss and turn my very pregnant body, my mind races with all the things I need to do that day. Plenty of things that need to get done at work. All kinds of things around my house to get ready before the baby comes.

I get up to make a fresh glass of ice water and check my email.   Because important emails come between 11 pm and 4 am.    You know, the likes of Pottery Barn and Snapfish.   My favorite blogs have not even updated yet.

My dogs don't understand why anyone is up, yet they follow me downstairs like there is something going on.

Not much, just a baby getting ready to be born.

The funny thing is that I don't really remember the lack of sleep that comes with a newborn.  I think I really have convinced myself that they only get up once or twice during the night.   Remember Janel, they eat like every 2 hours for awhile?  Don't they?  I really don't remember.

Maybe I'll go read that baby book - What to Expect...

Maybe later, I think sleep is what's back on my mind now.

I can't sleep either! I think I may sleep better with a newborn than being so pregnant!

Oh, I just had my fourth daughter in May...I so remember staying up late "planning" and "nesting", I am just up to sleepily feed my girl with eyes half open, snoring in between.
