Wednesday, June 24, 2009 - Update

Guess what I learned to do?

Hmm. . .what's in here?

Last night had to go down in the record books for the most sleepless night of all time. It was awful. Olivia is a fantastic sleeper. I usually put her to bed around 9 pm and I don't hear a peep out of her until morning. A few months ago, she started getting into the habit of waking up multiple times, so we had to nip that in the bud. It only took three nights of continuously laying her back down before she was sleeping like a champ again. Since she has been sick, it has been difficult for her to sleep and I just don't have it in me to let her cry in her room by herself. So, I have been sleeping in a recliner with her. Last night, Olivia and I were really restless and could not fall asleep. It was funny, though, around 1 pm. . .she looked at me, smiled and said, "Woof, woof." I barked back and we continued barking and laughing at each other for some time. Finally, when sleep just kept eluding us. . .we crawled into bed with daddy. I don't know how people sleep with their children or how a 19 lb child can somehow take up the entire bed. I hardly slept at all on my 2 inches of bed space. If it wasn't for the few dreams that I had, I would swear that I didn't sleep at all.

Anyway, Olivia's temp seems to be gone today. She must have heard me talking about taking her to the doctor. She is doing much better than she's done all week, so hopefully we're on the mend. In fact, she's learning all kinds of new things today like how to open cabinet doors and if she holds the phone up to her ear, she looks just like mama. I just hope that we can both take a nice, long nap this afternoon.

Glad to hear that she is well again and they always seem to find those cabinets at some point. Sounds like a long nap would be a very welcomed break today!

Ahhh the sleep disturbances are rough!! Hope you get back into the usual routine now that Olivia is feeling better.
Love the cabinet pics....my girls LOVED playing in the cabinets at that age:)
