Eyes half shut

I don't know what is up with Hope. Three nights ago I was up with her from 2 until 4:30. At 4:30 I finally slept on her floor. It was the only way I could get her to stay asleep. The two nights after that were better. I got to sleep in my own bed.

Last night it happened again. She was up at 11:30, at 1:15, at 3:00, at 4:00. I checked all the usuals and finally figured it must be the three teeth that are about to erupt. I gave her Motrin. At 4:30 after trying everything to get her back to sleep, I climbed in bed ready to let her cry. John went in and slept on her floor until 8:00.

We're driving to the cottage this morning and I wanted to leave by 8:00.

Emily peed in her bed again.

Right now, life could be a bit better.

Sorry things have been so rough Karen. Does Hope have a "lovey"? A security blanket or special doll/stuffed animal? I started introducing one to Maya when she was about Hope's age to help her sleep. I started out by putting the blanket between us during her bedtime and naptime bottles. It may help.
