It is nearing 5:30am

And I am STILL awake!! Why you ask? Well for the past 2 yes 2 days my sweet little girl has turned in to a monster at night! Yes a MONSTER! *wait for it I will shoot and post some pictures of her.*

(NO she did NOT hit her head when she crys she gets red and blotchy)

Lets start with last night... She normally goes down for bed around 10 and well it was nearing 2 and she was still NOT asleep I wrapped her in a blanket and OMG gave her a pacifier and clipped her in to her car seat , turned off the TV and lights and rocked her and rocked her and rocked her... all while net surfing to keep mama awake... at about 5am YES 5am Daddy woke up after having night terrors...and came in to the living room with blanket and pillow in hand and snuggled up on the couch next to me.

He some what fell asleep(he had to be at work at 8). Adlie on the other hand was STILL awake! She was not thank God crying but she was not asleep! She started to fuss so I decide I will try to feed her... she decides to play! so I finish nursing her and put her down to play (yes at this point daddy had left for work and I had given up!)

So I let her play while I made me some eggs and toast and warmed her some oatmeal.. She refused to eat it but ate almost all of my toast... she then snuggled with me for the next hour wide awake but just chill in my lap. I attempted to shower at this point to which she played with the toys on her jumper just long enough for me to wash my hair... I dressed towel dried my hair and changed her diaper then fed her again.. By this time it is almost 11:30 and still no sleep!!! Then something wonderful happened!!! She was ASLEEP!!! This being her normal nap time I only allowed her to sleep her normal nap time.. she was up by 1:30 and man she was CRANKY!

She ate then I let her play for a while. around 4:30 we *yes her and I* went down for her second nap which normally lasts about an hour. Once daddy came home she was up and ready to play. I got her out some toys and let her play on the floor while I did some picking up and while daddy showered. Then daddy had to run to do something with his friend and was back around 7:45 we then headed to the store grabbed some cookies and soda and then grabbed Taco Bell for dinner came home let Adlie play on the floor while we ate then she had some applesauce and I nursed her.... She played for a while but seemed to want to be held so I cuddled her and she was soon fell asleep *around 10ish*.

I took her in to bed with me and I fell asleep also. Matt had a friend come over to play video games . Adlie woke around 12:30 and wanted to PLAY!!! I am thinking what is wrong with my child she NEEDS to sleep! I try to get her to go back to sleep for an hour and a half but all she wants to do is play so back to the living room we go for her to play * I was really hoping she would be sleepy soon so I just let her play. I started getting really sleepy around 3:30 so I took her back to bed HOPING she would fall asleep and after about an hour of nursing she was sleeping!!!

I however was no longer tired so I get up to be sure her toys and stuff were picked up and around 4:45 what do I hear.... Adlie CRYING! WHAT IS UP WITH THIS!! So here I am it is 6am *YES 6am* Adlie is wrapped in a blanked in her car seat being rocked making whimpering noises trying to keep her self awake. I am at this point beyond tired but that has skipped over and is now just a restless almost manic nesting... like when you are 8 months pregnant and you wake in the middle of the night to organize the closet!... I want to pack but fear my moving around that much will disturb her some what sleep *her eyes are closed and the whimpering is only coming if I move her so I have stopped rocking her* I can sadly see the early morning light slowly creeping in the ugly vertical blinds of our apartments sliding glass door and realize this is day #2 of this non sleeping thing! I hope this is a teething thing. She is showing the signs of it.

Just let me clear a few things so there aren't questions. She Does NOT have any type of fever. She normally sleeps great.. I am thinking this may also be a growth spurt.. Well we will see.. Please Y'all this mama is T-I-R-E-D pray for a better day and for more sleep tomorrow!

She is now asleep!!

I will close for now and will let you know how today and tonight go!

Thanks for stopping by!
