Sleep Issues

We are notorious for staying up late. We have some friends who feel bad if they stay late that they're keeping us up, but after they leave we'll still be up for hours. Others, who work late to start with, we tell to come on over anytime, because we're still up all hours of the night. The earliest we usually get to bed is 2 a.m. but sometimes not till 4 a.m. The rest of the nights fall somewhere in between.

Last night, a real rarity, we were to be by like one. I don't know how it happened. Then, as fate would have it, Caleb woke up at 1:30, screaming his head off. I thought that he'd fallen out of his crib or something, he was screaming that bad. But no. He was okay. Just really upset.

We fed him a bottle. Changed his diaper. Rocked him. Sung to him. Finally, an hour later, he's asleep again. Only to wake up twenty minutes later, screaming. But what was there left to do for him? So we just let him cry it out. He eventually fell back asleep on his own and slept till nine this morning. But still, that meant we didn't go to bed till after 3.

I guess that's what we get for going to bed early.

How funny! I thought we were the only ones! That sounds pretty much like our bedtime too. Serves you right for getting to bed early. :)

Sorry about Saturday, I hope you're feeling better. We are getting ready to move on the 2nd, so we will be pretty busy until then, but after that, we would love to come see you (and your pretty new kitchen!) if the offer still stands.
