Man, you think to yourself

Why do people have more than one child? Don't get me wrong, I'm so in love with my girls I wouldn't trade them for anything.... but can we get some sleeping going on here? I swear when it's not one it's the other. Monday night Norah refused to sleep. I don't know what her deal was. I rocked her, I patted her, I tried feeding her AGAIN, I turned on her bear and her mobile... and finally I gave up. If all my effort wasn't helping, then obviously it was something she needed to work out on her own. So I went back upstairs and waited for the meltdown. She fussed on and off for probably 15 more minutes, and then apparently fell asleep. Which is fine, she wasn't melting down, Hannah wasn't awake, and we were ready for sleeping at a semi normal hour.

Fast Forward to 12:15am. I hear crying.... I assume it's Norah and head downstairs only to realize as I'm halfway there that it's HANNAH screaming like someone's hurting her. So I race into her room, and she stops when she sees me and says "I can't find my binky" Ugh, ok so we tear the bed apart, find the godforsaken binky and go back to sleep. Until 4:30.... which as you will note from my previous post, is the same time Norah gets up nearly every morning. The feeding her at night only helps sporadically, so sometimes she sleeps until 5:30 or later, and sometimes she wakes up at 4:30.

I love my girls, but I'm waiting anxiously for the time when I'm not sleeping because it's TOO QUIET.
