Talk about sleepless nights...

Well, as mentioned before, Priya got shots the other day, while cutting teeth! Those things together, along with the occasional gas bubble, has lead to some VERY sleepless nights! Arg! For those of you who don't know, our little cutie slept through the night right off the bat! The first 2 months were night time bliss as far as sleeping - it was more than we could hope for! Unfortunately, that only lasted about 2 months when after a trip to Wisconsin she began waking up at least once a night. Now, if she sleeps till 5 without waking, we are Joyful! She never stays awake - she just wakes long enough to drink a bit of a bottle, then falls right back asleep. That is, until she got her shots. Now that, combined with her teeth, has lead to several nights of Tylenol, teething tablets, gripe water, oragel and rocking! Lots and lots of rocking! My poor baby would start to fall asleep in my arms, then just start crying again with some rediscovered discomfort or pain.
The worst part is that since last night Joe played basketball, even though Priya went to bed about nine, we didn't get to bed until MUCH later, so last night would have been short on sleep anyhow! Oh well - I just hope she starts feeling better soon... for ALL of our sakes! :)

To help me remember why I'm not selling her on EBay (as Wendy would say :), here are a few photos of my little princess from her 6 month photo shoot - ARG! I don't know why the colors aren't coming through right - they all look blue! Well, hopefully you still get the gist! ;)

I am so sorry Priya isn't sleeping very well. But if it makes you feel better Sophie wouldn't sleep past 3:30am all last week. Maybe we can sell them together! A matching set!

Can I throw in Emily, too? Maybe it's something traveling through the country...
We got spoiled b/c she has always gone to bed no problem and slept through the night, but lately we've been having issues (with a 3:30 waking and refusing to sleep in her own bed, making a very uncomfortable night for us). We are concerned that her's has to do with the dog attack b/c it didn't start happening until after that. Ah, the joys of life, right?

Our little one has cut six teeth in the last three weeks so I hear ya on the no sleep. We actually found that the tylenol was upsetting her stomach too so be careful! Ibuprofen has been a little easier on her tummy but if we give it to her in the middle of the night we still have problems. Good Luck! She sure is a cutie

knock on wood Katie goes from about 8 at night till 5:45. We have been blessed. I can't believe she is sitting up already but then again, Anna was too by that age. Lindsay was slow to sit up and so will katie but that is only because I have to keep katie in the swing or the bouncy seat just to keep her safe. Lindsay likes to love her (usually includes laying on top of her).

I somehow missed these photos before--what a darling baby! I'm sure such an innocent-looking granddaughter would never be any trouble...
