I was wondering how long I could go without talking about sleep. Apparently, not very long at all.
Porgie has been sleeping like an angel for about a month. She goes right to sleep at 7:30 pm, and sleeps until about 7:00 am. It has been an amazing and restful month. A wonderful month. Probably the best month I have had (in the sleep department) since Porgie was born 14 months ago.
Then last night happened. I put her down at 7:30 pm, but she absolutely refused to go to sleep. At 8:30, I went in to check on her. She was happy as a clam, crawling around her crib. I left the room, and she continued playing in her crib. At 9:30, Porgie started crying. I went in to check on her, and realized that she had pooped. I changed her diaper, read her another story, and put her back in the crib. She happily played for another hour.
My child did not go to sleep until almost 11:00 pm. Isn't that insane? This is a child who is on a strict schedule. She goes to bed at 7:30 EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I don't care what we are doing or where we are at - WE HAVE TO BE HOME BY 7:00!!! No exceptions and no excuses.
I was hoping that maybe Porgie would make up for her late bedtime, by sleeping in this morning. No such luck. Porgie was up and ready to go at 6:00 am. Babies are confusing little creatures.
