Last night I was supposed to put Amira to bed. I don't know if her habits are changing, or if her teeth were bothering her, or if I just was doing something wrong, but I could not get her to sleep! Ugh, this is the 3rd time this week. I get her calm, I get her to lay in her crib with her eyes closed, and I stir her up by attempting to leave the room. After an hour of this I came to get help from Adrian, (who usually peeks his head in by this point) only to find him asleep in the living room! I suppose I should have taken this cue to go back to the baby's room to keep Amira on some sort of sleep schedule (part of sleep training right?), but instead we decided to play a little in the living room. Adrian had no choice but to wake up and we all lounged together before Adrian successfully got Amira to go to sleep.

I agreed to watch The Road with him-I was sure he would fall back asleep and I could change the channel, but he stayed awake throughout it. The film was pretty good, but I was on edge the entire time-I find I am less and less able to watch any suffering, even when I know it's fiction.

This morning I woke up early and was able to make a cup of coffee, do a little crocheting, and help Amira practice walking around before I went to work-and we let Adrian sleep in (until 7am-lucky guy!)And now it's bedtime for our baby again! Yes, Adrian is in the bedroom with her while I am typing this...


  1. Good going... And don't worry, soon you will be able to work out a sleeping schedule for her...she is a beautiful kid.

  2. Thanks, last night went much better!
