This is Emily Blessing.
These pictures were taken today, Saturday, as we observed Emily's super baby ability to go about her daily activities on hardly any sleep. She was awake last night from 11:30 pm until 4:15 am. Yes, almost five hours. Did she sleep in this morning? Not after she heard Anna crying. Did she take a long nap? Nope - not unless you consider 45 minutes to be long.
She did start to fall apart after dinner and actually fell asleep without crying at bedtime. She HAS to be exhausted. I'm exhausted. Rich is exhausted. Allie and Anna both looked exhausted this morning.
The cause of the Ban on Sleep is undetermined. She has a bottom molar coming in but it looks like the worst of it should be over. She doesn't feel feverish. She's been eating fine and I finally gave her a bottle of milk at 4:00 am in desperation. She fell asleep five minutes later. Rich relayed my concern of her attachment to me. We are afraid that she doesn't want to go back to sleep because she is spending time with Momma. Momma isn't around much these days.
