William is a good sleeper. Usually. At night, he sleeps in his bassinet right next to our bed. During the day, I try to nap him in his crib, but really he sleeps best in someone’s arms against their warm, cozy body. Yesterday was one of those days that I could not get him to nap anywhere besides my arms.
Twelve o’clock rolled around before I had a chance to jump in the shower for two seconds only to get out to a sad, crying baby. Somehow I managed to get dressed and put makeup on. Only to get instantly spit up on just moments later.
It had me thinking, “What do you do when your baby will only sleep in your arms?”
Well, since you’re limited in what you can do, you most likely have your phone nearby. And since your baby has been sleeping in your arms on and off all morning and day, you decide to take a selfie with your baby. “That’s fun,” you think. So you take a couple more. Then you decide to put them in a collage to send to your family in a group text because, well, why not? You haven’t got anything better to do.
They think itz funny which only encourages you more…
You realize all the pictures of you aren’t super attractive, but you continue anyway…
Then things start to get really crazy…
And just for good measure…
Linz and William selfie overload? Eh, when you’re home all day everyday sometimes things like that happen. And you’re ok with it because you love your little guy so much.
Then maybe your own momma comes over because after 800 selfie pictures she thinks you may be beginning to lose it…
You tell her over and over again how baby will not sleep anywhere else besides your arms.
So she takes matters into her own hands, and before you know it an hour has gone by.
“I thought you said he won’t sleep in his crib?” she asks.
Oh, moms are always right. When does that start to happen for me? I’m a mom now.
No matter how well or how poorly the little guy sleeps, you know itz ok.
Because you’d do anything for that precious face.
What do you do when your baby will only sleep in your arms?
