Last night Emerson fell asleep for a nap around 6:30pm. So I figured maybe she would go to bed at a reasonable time tonight. Once she woke up she was rubbing her eyes so I took her upstairs to get some pjs on. I put Little E. in her crib so she could wind down while I got things ready. Apparently the crib renewed her energy and it looks like I should take down those bumpers.
She thought standing would be much more fun. Isn't this crib a teether anyways?
You seriously thought I was going to sleep? Ha!!
There is sooo much fun stuff in my room.
Emerson even read herself a bedtime story.
NO SLEEP, NO SLEEP!
Trying to look innocent.
Ahhhh!! I'm outta here!
Looks like her new tooth coming in left it's mark. Oops!
4 hours later at 10:45 she is still up and attempting to help her Dad with his Halloween costume. When it reached 11pm I thought this was getting a little out of hand. So I rocked her, gave her the magic seahorse, and nothing. Finally I placed her in her crib, fingers crossed she wouldn't just get up and chew the corner off. I checked on her 3 times in the next 20 minutes. She was awake but contently laying there looking around. Finally around 11:30 she was curled up in the corner asleep on her belly. So maybe I'm the culprit in this month long sleep fiasco? Tonight we ARE starting a new bedtime routine. The plan is to wind down around 8:30, read a story, rock a little bit, then leave her in the crib. I will report back later.
