A newborn would be easier than this

Last night I was up with Hope at 12:01, 1:15, 2:45 and 5:09. At which point she came into bed with me only because I couldn't get her to stop screaming for me and I was at the end of my rope. To be honest, the last thing I wanted was to spend another minute with her but what I wanted more was to be horizontal. She did go to sleep next to me until about 6:30. Which is 30 minutes longer than I am normally in bed so there's that.

I would have had a better sleep last night if she was a newborn I think. At least I would expect her to be up, she would be fed and back in bed faster and up less frequently.

I'm pissed.

I don't know what the problem is. Maybe her last molars are coming through. I haven't approached the bear's mouth to poke around. She isn't exactly in a good mood this morning and I don't want to chance losing a finger.

Three nights ago she was up twice. We thought she was cold. Two nights ago she was up three times. We figured she was hot as we'd turned the heat up a bit which turned her small room into a little sauna. Last night the temperature in her room was fine all night so... huh?

At this rate I'll be pulling an all nighter tonight. Not something I was expecting to do at the age of 36.

There is a coffee with my name on it in the kitchen. Toodle-oo.

I'm fearing it is the teeth -- and I'm especially afraid because Gwen still have four to go! I'm hearing your pain. Any chance you can get a nap today?

Ugh. I wish I could but I have my class this afternoon. I suppose I could sleep then? :)

Ugh, I had that exact same experience last night, although bringing her into my bed wasn't so successful. And we are cutting all FOUR molars at one time!! Good Luck!!

Ack. Do it doesn't get better? I've been sleeping with Max for the past week! Though I imagine now it's more out of habbit for him and I am just too weak to deal with it.

Toddlers...so sweet and so infuriating! Why do they have to pick night time to become so stubborn and loud. Good luck on the sleep front tonight. Wish I could be there to take Hope and Emily off your hands for an hour or so.

Maybe give her tylenol before she goes to bed. I'm not usually a drug pusher, especially with kids, but at least you would know if it's the teeth or something was hurting.

Good luck!
