You would think by child #3 I would be thankful for every moment that the baby is sleeping, but because my first two children had colic and GERD they were not very prone to sleeping consistently. Actually, they hardly slept at all! Due to their sleep issues, when #3 arrived and (gasp!) actually slept, I freaked out. Who knew that the more he slept the less I would? The crazy thing about having multiple children is that you suddenly realize how fragile they are as infants. Your older children suddenly seem bigger and sturdier.
