Sleep woes and a twist of great news
Vincent is quite possibly the worse sleeper in the entire world! He sleep walks every night, has vivid dreams that affect him, and doesn’t like sleeping in his own room. He cries every night because he doesn’t want to go to sleep and comes out of his room several times. He fights to sleep with us, which we have resorted to a mattress on the floor beside our bed because he beats us up all night if he is in bed with us. He sleep walks every night which is scary because he will run through the house yelling for me. I really want to put bolts on the doors because I’m scared he will just leave one night without us knowing. One day I woke up to not find him in his bed or anywhere in the house, scared me so bad at first, he had went into our newly remodeled family room (used to be our garage) and slept on the floor. He also has really vivid dreams that affect him even awake. Just the other night he had a mouse dream, woke up completely freaked out at 3am so we brought him into bed with us, but for 3 very long hours he was scared to sleep and kept saying “what’s that, there’s a mouse”. Needless to say when the alarm went off at 6:30am we turned it off and slept in because we had just gotten him to relax and go to sleep at 6am. He seems to be getting worse with his sleep walking too. I’m exhausted between him sleep walking and his brother being really sick with bronchiolitis. He has an appt. next Thursday to discuss getting a sleep study done to test for sleep apnea because he snores badly so I plan on asking then about his sleeping issues then. Will this get better or stop? I’m just concerned he isn’t getting enough sleep especially since he gets up early and goes to school all day. Does anyone else have these issues with their June Bud?
Now on to the twist of great news: Shane and I are getting married! Well we are already married through the courts and now we are getting our marriage blessed in our church. We are having an all-out gown, tux’s, the whole shebang wedding. I am so excited and in wedding planning mode since we meet with our Father and decided. We are having our ceremony February 25th, 2012, 10 months and I cannot wait! I already have the church, the venue, and a photographer. I am buying my dream wedding dress on Saturday, it is just gorgeous and I am in love, it gives me the feeling. I have two bakers quoting me for cakes, one just gave me her quote and it is an awesome price she is also making and giving us a real sample cake in May so that we can taste it and make sure we like the look we picked out. The other baker is also a wedding planner and she is working up a quote for us to do a lot more; like the linens, cake, flowers, center pieces, favors, directing the wedding, and lending us the chaffing/serve ware. I’m hoping her price is reasonable so we can go through her if not we will be doing a lot of it ourselves. I’m blessed that my FIL is a chef at a prestigious country club so he is going to buy and cook all of the food for the 200 + people on our guest list.
Anyway thanks for listening and I will keep you posted on his appt.
