Too much crafting or sleep deprived?

I've been craft inspired lately so I've been trying to fit some crafting in whenever I get a spare moment. I'm working on a quilt/ blanket made from old sweaters so my serger has been getting a lot of use while I cut out and serge the squares.

But this week, Gideon has been sick and therefore not sleeping well. I think most parents can understand that when baby isn't sleeping well, then Mommy doesn't sleep well! After a rough night on Wednesday and a very rough night Thursday, Dave took Gideon to our room Friday night and rocked him while I worked on a small project.

When Gideon fell asleep, I went to bed with him and fell asleep as well. Sometime after midnight, he woke up crying and crying. Half asleep and dreaming still, I didn't know what to do in my dream to make him stop crying. I picked him up and couldn't figure out what to do next. I thought there was part of him missing and I was trying to find it. I just kept saying, "Gideon, Gideon, Gideon." Then I thought, "If I get him out to living room, I could use the serger to put him back together!"

About then, Dave woke up and took Gideon so I could wake up completely. I told Dave today what I was dreaming and now he thinks I'm crazy and thinks I shouldn't do craft projects right before bed!

So, too much crafting or sleep deprived?

I'm just going to pretend the past 4 months never happened...

It hasn't been that long since I blogged, right? Ha ha. It's not like I have a ton of people reading this anyway.

To update really quick: Gideon is thriving. Nursing all the time still though he's finally eating some solids. Still sleeping with us. No vaccinations. No problems with his perfectly intact penis. He's cruising every where and has taken a few steps on his own. He loves to play and snuggle and smile and talk and laugh. He is seriously the best thing that has ever happened to us.

Yes, my house is messy but Gideon is so cute!

On me: I still love nursing Gideon whenever he wants. We've moved to a new city and are loving it. I love being home with Gideon every day. And I can't believe it's been almost a year since I went into labor and gave birth. I keep wondering how I'll feel about that milestone.

I've accepted what happened but I can't seem to stop the "what if" thoughts from creeping into my mind.

I won't promise that I'll be back soon to post more, but I will try! With an aspiring toddler in the house, it's not easy to have two hands to type a post!
