Rough Night/Good Morning

Sierra, at almost 14 months old, is still not even close to sleeping through the night. We’ve been working on getting her completely weaned ASAP because my new gastroenterologist wants me to start a medication that should not be used when nursing. We’ve eliminated all of her daytime nursing sessions without any problems – she even naps without it – but at night it’s a whole other story. Sometimes Lex can get her back to sleep, but then other times she just can’t be convinced that there’s anything else she wants in the middle of the night. The last few days in particular have been really tough. The kid really knows how to work me, though. Last night when Lex gave up and brought her into our room, as soon as she was in my arms she cried out, “Mama! Mama!” and then wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed me on the forehead. How am I supposed to resist her when she does that, and then asks for milk???

Despite the rough night, our day started out pretty great. These were Anya’s first words, heard over the monitor, as she woke up this morning:

Mama! Daddy! Here comes Anya! Here I come!

There’s nothing like starting out the day laughing.
