I <3 Infant's Motrin!

I actually got the equivalent of 8 hours of sleep last night! I don't know what to do with myself! Here's what happened:

After DTTF helped me give Tree Faerie her antibiotics and the Motrin, she nursed for a bit before I gave her a bath. After the bath, we did the Baby Rub, story, and then nursed to sleep. I had her in bed by 10 PM, and I was in bed by 10:30. At 10:40, Tree Faerie woke me up and was sitting up in her bed fussing. I picked her up and rocked her, but she kept throwing her head back. I tried nursing her, but she threw her head back. I tried everything I could think of in a span of 5 minutes, but she just kept throwing her head back. Finally I just put her back in her bed, and you know what? She was OUT! I have no idea what that was, though I discovered the other night that I have a sleep-crawler. Maybe I have a sleep-fusser, too? There's no surprise there, since both DTTF and I were sleepwalkers, and I still talk in my sleep.

After that, she slept until 5:30, then after a quick nurse, she slept until 7 AM. I could hardly believe it!

Needless to say, we're both feeling great today, and we're currently sitting here waiting for the AC inspector people to show up. (Yes, it's still working, but the state has to come inspect it. Cross your fingers for a green sticker instead of a red one.)

Invaluable, yes. Also foriegn lately. :) And I love sleep, too, which is probably why I complain about my lack-of so much.
