Luke has never been one to sleep in. Shoot, he’s never been one to sleep. As a newborn, he was awake more than he was asleep. When all of the other babies and toddlers were taking two naps a day- one in the morning and one in the afternoon- I was lucky to get a full 2-hour nap from him in the afternoon. Weekends were never for sleeping in. He might miss something important if he slept in.
In just over a month, Luke will officially be a teenager. (ACK!) And he has FINALLY decided that this sleeping in thing is pretty nice!
As nice as it is to have a quiet morning, especially this time of year with the white Christmas lights glowing as I scroll through Facebook to get my “morning news,” it makes me a little uneasy.
Luke is still Dex-free. And I’m SO glad that he is. He is doing amazingly well taking care of his T1. However, it does leave me guessing, wondering whether or not he’s high or low or right where he should be. Especially now that he’s sleeping in.
Now don’t get me wrong. I still refuse to let T1 take over our lives. In all honesty, mornings are the only time I really worry about him… and it’s just for a split second.
And that’s okay.
It’s then that I go into Luke’s room and straighten out his covers to try to get him to move. Or I stand in the doorway to watch to see if I can see his chest moving up and down. Or sometimes I send Finn in to walk on him- that almost always works.
Then, I breathe a sigh of relief that he’s still alive.
