sometimes i wish i didn't have so many expectations. when i have expectations that aren't met i get sad, or mad, or grumpy. here's an example: jackson used to be a pretty bad sleeper. over the last few months he's become a good sleeper. he sleeps through the night (with a dream feed around 11:30pm...yes, we're back to doing the dream feed-see previous post). he takes 2 naps a day and usually sleeps between 1.5-2 hours for each. so i've learned to expect these things. when they don't happen, i get grumpy. for the last few days jackson hasn't slept well at all. he's been waking up several times a night and his naps have gone back to 1 hour at the most. today he took two 45 min. naps. it was hard a few months ago when he didn't sleep well, but now that i know he can sleep better, i think it's even harder that he's been sleeping so poorly. hopefully he's just going through a growth spurt or getting a tooth or something and that this too will pass (and pass quickly!)

ooh... i bet your little one is teething. at least, when caleb was majorly teething he only took 45 minutes naps. i hope it goes faster for jackson (if that's what it is) than it did for my monster.
