the great awake artist, my daughter

ava suddenly stinks at sleeping. this has always been her weakness. for some reason, she loves us so much that she wants to be with us all the time. and she wants to be with us awake, so she never misses anything fun (i don't blame her, we are a lot of fun). lately, she has been rather adamant about this, resulting in awful sleeping hours that would make normal people strangle her to death. instead, i just try not to giggle and avoid her wiggling little legs that are most likely going to kick me in the fetus and that hurts.

tell me how to get my child to sleep and stay that way before i stop giggling and start strangling.

i think the fact that my first thought was tylenol pm means i'm not ready to reproduce =/

is she in her bed? that is where i would put her... but other than that i would also like a few pointers on how to get my kid to sleep.

Miriam, HOW ARE YOU?!?!?? I've been so bad at keeping up on blogs! But I love reading all of your posts. I'm glad your pregnancy is going well. Ava is a doll. I'm sorry she isn't sleeping well. Whenever Michael goes through phases like that I just have to be adamant that he stays in his own bed. We also put him to bed earlier and then cover his window with a quilt so that he sleeps longer in the morning! Hope you can find something that works!

Can't tell ya, I've already gotten to the strangling part! Just kidding! But I have found that caffiene is a good friend to me lately. haha.

When you couldn't sleep, didn't you used to make chocolate chip cookies and call all the radio DJs? I think I'd like to hear Ava on the air. It would be enormously entertaining.
