Miss Predicatability

Anya has become quite predictable in her evening routine. If only that were such a good thing. Here is a look at our life at least 90% of the nights for the past few weeks:

10:00 PM – “Final” feeding and wrapping up for the night
10:10 PM – Anya sleeping very soundly; putting her in the swing is optional
10:45 PM – Anya awake and refreshed, big eyes looking around the room
11:00-11:45 PM – Anya back asleep, squirmy, but if you put her down, 80% chance she’ll stay asleep
12:30-1:00 AM – Anya awake; maybe will go back to sleep if you bounce 30+ minutes
2:00 AM – Anya up for food regardless of whether she ate at 1.
2:30-2:45 AM – Anya asleep again
3:30 AM – Anya awake again for food
4:00 AM – Anya back asleep
5:00 AM – Anya wiggly, wakes up; can be bounced back to sleep usually within 30 minutes
6:15 AM – Anya up again for food
6:45 AM-7:00 – Anya returns to sleep
9:00 AM – Anya awake in good spirits, ready to start the day; mom isn’t

“Just put your little hand in mine. There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb”
“Phil? Phil Collins? I thought that was you!”
“I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be gray, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.”



  1. Wow happy 1 hour of sleep for you guys! I am sorry lets hope she grows out of this phase and you can get some sleep. That is a hard one to deal with and still be pleasant for the day.

  2. It isn’t quite that bad. It just isn’t more than a couple hours in a row. And even if you get 6 hours in 4 or 5 chunks, that doesn’t quite feel the same as 6 straight hours.

    Oh well, this can’t last forever, can it?
