Sweet dreams...HA!!!

I should not post about a night that is not over yet. It just leaves room for more posting when there shouldn't be any. Sophie ended up waking up (for the third time) a little after midnight. After about 45 minutes, Brandon couldn't take it anymore and handed her off to me. She just WOULD NOT go back to sleep!!! She does this every once in a blue moon (the staying up for a long time part). She is happy for the most part. Wanting to play, talk, whatever. And she was happy for the most part last night. She was just very demanding. She wanted to play upstairs. Then downstairs. Then upstairs again. Then in the kitchen where she started pulling everything out of the pantry. But that wasn't good enough. She wanted the refrigerator door open. Then she wanted the freezer door open. Then she started pulling things out and then I would put them back in. She ended up eating peanut butter crackers, grapes and ice-cream. If you are wondering why I was meeting all of her is because she would start screaming and crying if I didn't. Which means that Elsa would wake up. So I tried to keep her as quiet as possible as to not have two demanding kids up at once. By the time she finally fell asleep (while "watching" Barney for the third time on tv), Brandon was getting in the shower. It was 4am and he had a 6am flight to catch to Washington D.C. She then woke up again at 6:45am, 7:45am and then was up for good at 8:45am. That is the last time I wish her sweet dreams ;)

I bet you guys are in for a rough ride weaning her from her last med. Withdrawl symptoms are always so vague but as with all these drugs I bet insomnia, increased appetite and aggitation are all part of it. Hang in there. Hope to see you in a couple weeks.

Ahhh...those late night play dates *LOL*. It's been awhile since we've had one of those. But, they do still happen every now and then. It was much worse on Keppra, but the Clobazam doesn't help either.

Hope it was a one shot deal! My husband was up at 6am too because of Ava.

I hear ya sister! Nora has NEVER been a good sleeper. And when she is sick (now) it is even worse. She is inconsolable. Nora just climbs/falls out of her crib like a mad woman. Fun times I tell you.

Hope it is getting better!
