Sleep... SLEEP!!! Oh yes, yes, yesssssssssss!!!

Princess LaLa went to sleep last night at about 9:00 pm after several hours of fussiness and refusing to take her usual 3 pm to 6 pm nap.

Uh-oh, John and I both knew, knew, that it was going to be a long fussy night ahead because an overtired almost-two month old who didn't get her nap... well, we all know what that means, right?


At 2 am, LaLa still hadn't stirred. By this point we'd already thrown away a whole bottle of formula because we had poured it at about midnight in anticipation of her waking up hungry, cranky and screaming. Finally at 2:35 am, I made a bottle, changed the diaper and fed a very sleepy, barely awake LaLa. She burped and went right back down by 2:55 am. I think she only opened one eye the whole time.

John and I kept checking her breathing to make sure she was OK. She then slept until almost 6 am when she woke, opened one eye, drank a bottle and went right back down, not to stir again until 8 am.

Yes, you read that right -- 8 AM!

Who is this blissful sleeping child and can we keep her?
