while you all are sleeping....

last night J was pretty tired and was ready for bed by 6:45 ish...

this is where it all went wrong.

9:30, we hear cried over the monitor, daddy goes re positions her and lays her back down.

Daddy and I go to bed

11:20 cries over the monitor, loud ones, accompanied by runny nose sounds

I suctioned her nose which she does not like at all. and then tried to give her her paci which only lead to further frustration for her because she couldn't really breath when her nose is having whatever problems they may be having, runny/ stuffiness and then you go and plug up the only air hole left...

I hunted in the basement for the humidifier
found it, and set it up in her room,

meanwhile i make bottle and give to her

3 mins after finishing bottle she spits it ALL back up, on myself and her

12:00 AM to the bath tub we go

12:15 fresh jammies and diaper, tuck back into bed

12:30 my head hits the pillow

12:45 J is still talking in her crib, daddy and I decide to bring her into our bed

12:46 foot in dads face
12:47 finger in mommies eye
12:47 I am now wondering how with only an 8 month old and a husband suddenly out king bed feels like a twin as my leg is half off and one tip on my nose is still able to rest on a pillow
12:48 J tried to crawl off bed
12:49 mom repositions her
12:50 she's looking pretty sleepy
daddy was asleep all the way back at 12:45

1:15 she  is out. arm on my arm foot above the covers, making me too nervous to do a quick pull, you know so I could be comfortable with the blanket all tucked up under my neck

3:15 I wake up to some movements in the bed, and am then greeted with a wet kiss on my forehead, I atempt to lay her back down when I notice, her diaper seemed to be half on half off....

3:16 flip on bathroom light
3:16.5 face falls into hands as i notice a giant circle of wetness in the center of out bed
3:17 jammy and diaper change for J
3:20 lay her in her bed
more cries, daddy comes in
3:22 I am back in our bedroom stripping the sheets, sponging up the wetness that was starting to seep into matress...

3:23 realize, what am i doing with no sheets how can i get back to bed, where i so desperately wanted to be...
3:23 decided to take off bottom sheet and just  use cover sheet on the mattress for the rest of the night

daddy gets J to bed

3:25 YES! I look at him like he is the man , and ladies he was the man at this moment.
3:26 head hits pillow feeling so very thankful as I drift off to dream land
3:42 cries on monitor ..........
3:43, I realize I need to toss in the towel and head downstairs....

I am not sure what today brings, but I feel it will involve lots of black coffee and our  PJ's

oh dear! we just had a few nights like that too. I heard that between 5-8 months babies experience some big developmental leaps, especially concerning new levels of alertness. From what I have read it passes relatively quick - it was only an issue for a couples days for our babe, so take heart ;) But then again, I am just a new mom that knows nothing... so heck, everything I just said could be garbage!! Just a thought, because when I heard it it gave me a little more peace and understanding for what was going on with the cute little baber in our house. Only you know your baby though.. so if this info is totally unwanted and annoying, you can delete this comment forever and it won't hurt my feelings, I promise ;) Take care, she is a cutie!!!

thanks girls for the encouraging words. needless to say getting up so early my house looks in tip top shape and 4 loads of laundry were done, one being our bedding :)I think it is due to her cutting more teeth, I noticed her top frot tooth is poking through now and her bottom two are already up, just trying to figure out why when her first 2 came in it wasn't a problem, but these ones are really bothering her.

shes doing great today, playing and acting like her normal self just leaving puddles of drool everywhere she goes, looking forward to the naps today but dont want her to take too many because I would love for her to sleep through the night again.
