Night Life

Twice this past week the little one has woken us up in the middle of the night. The first time, I rocked her for 15 minutes, tried to put her back in her crib, at which point she screamed and woke up her mom. So she came in and rocked her for about two hours while I went back to sleep... I had to work the next day, she did not.

Last night she again woke in the middle of the night, but this time, it only took about 10 minutes of rocking before she was able to go back to bed.

She may be having nightmares now which is just awful to think about, since they can have them at this age, but they aren't able to tell the difference, and they don't know what dreaming is.

So in the middle of the night we'll ask her if she wants to go back to bed and she'll say "no" in a quiet quivering voice and it just breaks your heart.
