Who needs sleep, well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep, tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep, be happy with what you're getting
This guy's been awake since the second world war...
Who needs sleep? Apparently not Topher. Lately he's been waking up at night, and it bring back memories of when he was a newborn. We thought it was because of his cold and the fact that he couldn't breathe very well, but his cold is all but gone now and he's waking up more than ever. Last night he went to bed too early (6:30pm) and woke up at midnight. I didn't get him back into bed until 2:30am. Then he was up at 5am, and TJ took care of him until he had to leave for work at 7:30am, when I got up and took over again. It's now almost 1pm, and he still hasn't slept today.
So what is he doing with all those extra waking hours?
Well, he has long, one-sided conversations with Sassymuffin:
He spends some time out in nature:
He gets some reading time in:
And of course, plenty of chewing (this is his water mat with shapes inside that move around):
I keep thinking I should have had him back in college when I required a lot less sleep. :) Oh well, good thing he's such an adorable little guy.
So much joy in life, so many pleasures all around
But the pleasure of insomnia is one I've never found
With all life has to offer, there's so much to be enjoyed
But the pleasures of insomnia are ones I can't avoid...
