I don't know if it is because she has a low level cold (possible), because she has been running around more (could be) or because she wakes up at 5 when Ian and Mira yell from their cribs (definitely a factor), but Ada has been wiped out by the end of the day. And by "end of the day" I mean often 7pm, but sometimes 5:30.

Whatever the reason,  we have been seeing a lot of this lately:


Due to sleepiness (either falling asleep before dinner or leaving the table during dinner because she can barely keep her head up, much less chew) Ada has missed a bunch of dinners and baths recently.  It doesn't seem to be harming her much. She wakes up ready to go, but not ravenous. (and only sometimes stinky)

Speaking of sleep, I'd better get to bed. Between Ada's new schedule and Ian's 4am chattering, I need to move up my bedtime a bit.


  1. I always find picture of sleeping babies and kids so sweet. (And love that no-sew fringe blanket. Did you make it?)

    I'm still working on figuring out how to get the right amount of sleep. I often stay up way too late, and then end up needing a nap the next day just to make it through, which then causes me to stay up way too late...

  2. Dudelet's been known to fall asleep around sixish after very long days. Little elf once fell asleep in the middle of eating. I'm short on sleep due to her irregularities at the moment but I resent going to bed early so much! I feel like I'm missing out.

  3. Growth spurt maybe?

    Haven't seen Agent M do it yet, but I have fond memories of my brother doing a face-plant into his spaghetti on more than one occasion.

    Agent M just doesn't eat when she's tired.

  4. For the last three mornings Alex has decided that 4:30 am is a good time to wake up. One day he only fussed and was able to put himself back to sleep but the other two days required help. Ugh! And he was doing so well.
