In search of sleep...

Baby Girl decided at about 3:00am last night that it was time to wake up....this was after I'd already been more or less awake since 2:00 after helping Boy Wonder go potty and settle back in his bed. She tried to convince both Moms that we should get up and watch Dora. We were having none of it. Finally, an hour, or so, later, she was asleep again. What is it? She really is not a good sleeper. Is her mattress not quite right for her? Is the room too cold/too hot? Is it too light/too dark? Or maybe, just maybe, it is that she has decided she is not much of a dinner eater and gets hungry in the night and it wakes her up. Yes, maybe these things, maybe more. Still, Wife and I are happy that it is only 7:00pm Sunday night and both kids are sleeping peacefully.

Madison went through a phase of about 6 months where she was waking up , didn't want to go to bed etc. Now thankfully she's finally settled back down but she still comes in our room sometimes in the early hours. Alot of our problems stem from the boogey-man incident back in July. Glad that is over and done with but she still talks about it. I think sometimes there is just so much going on in their little minds and they are learning so many things each day it is almost too much for them and they have trouble sleeping. Just my $.02 !
