I am pretty sure my lovely daughters are in a conspiracy against me. I may be incredibly, profoundly over-tired, but I swear I am on to them.
Every night Eloise is going to bed later and later. She used to fall asleep right after Iris did, roughly 9 pm every night. She would stay asleep until about 11 pm, therby giving me some much needed downtime. Even at 11, she would wake up to get her jammies on, get a new dipe, nurse and conk out again for the evening. Now, she's awake. Not just for a bit, but for hours. Last night I didn't get her to fall asleep for good until sometime after 1 am. Bless her little heart, though, because she did stay asleep until her sister woke up at the crack of dawn whining that she couldn't find her blankie and then crawl in to bed next to me and proceed to move around and make as much noise as possible. It the not-so-distant past Iris was sleeping until 9 am, 9:30 if I was lucky. So I've effectively gone from having quiet/sleeping time from 9 pm until 9 am to sleeping 1-ish am to 7-ish am. Those little buggers. I am SO on to them. Now if I only knew how to fix it . . .
