I am sitting in my bathroom. But it’s not like I’m on the toilet or anything. I mean, I am on the toilet. Because it’s the only seat. But I’m pantsed, or be-pantsed, or whatever term you prefer.

Grace is lying on the bathmat, hiccuping. We are in here because she started yelling in bed. I’d fallen asleep watching Xena: Warrior Princess (not a reflection on the show–it was paused when I dozed off) and gotten in bed before 9:00 (!), leaving her with Will. She’d woken hungry so he brought her to bed and I woke up to feed her. She ate and then she started fussing while I was trying to get back to sleep. Her fussing was disturbing Sam, so up we got.

The bathroom fan really works miracles on my babies. Thank goodness she is only like this at bedtime. Though it really is the LEAST CONVENIENT time of day for it.

Crazy as it may sound, I’m hoping she’ll fall asleep on the floor. She is such a sleep-loving baby it could happen. And I really really really want to go back to bed.

    FYI, I did not get back to sleep until sometime after 1:00 in the morning, and then only because I gave up and made a bed for me and Grace on the sofa.

    i feel your pain! i’m spending a lot of time right now trying to keep my maggie from disturbing her father (has to go to work in the morning) and her brother (has to go to school in the morning). apparently i’m the only one in the house for whom sleep is optional. and today at her one month (!) check-up, the doctor said she’ll start sleeping better/longer when she hits 10 pounds. !!! she’s only 7lbs6oz right now…

    I remember vividly like it was yesterday (and not 19 years ago) sleeping many a night in the recliner with Emylie strapped to my chest in a snugglie. She had colic and sleeping upright on my chest was most comfortable for her. I used the snugglie in case I dozed off…I didn’t want to drop her. I actually learned to like sleeping like that.

    “sleep-loving baby”…I need a little bit of that around here. And yes, fans are baby magic.
