Dreaded Sleep Regression

I think I saw somewhere that babies have sleep regressions at nine months. In the earlier stages, I remember crying because Silas would not wake up. I would have to put a cold rag on him, and still he would not wake.

Literally nothing would wake him, and as a mom parenting after loss, I was extra paranoid about him not eating every three hours.

Silas has since woken up since then, but for the most part he has been very good about taking his naps until now. Now, he is down to taking one nap, and just wants to party the rest of the day.

I know this phase won’t last long, but I like to reflect on how we pray for some changes, we get what we prayed for, and then pray for more changes. Silas is making up for all those times he slept the days away. He’s too focused on playing with his toys or knocking his books down.

Maybe it’s the dreaded sleep regression that I hear whispers about. I’m not entirely sure as I don’t spend too much time looking into that kind of information. I’ve just been going with the flow so to speak.

What I do know, is that I’m so grateful for the bouncer we were gifted for Christmas, and that we now have a back yard to let the dogs run around in.

Have you ever prayed for a situation to change and then had to pray through that change?

No matter what challenges you may face in life, The Lord will never give you anything that you cannot handle. It is up to you to get up each day and want to make a change.
