A Night in the Life of the Behrens

We're having a rough week around here.

It started on Wednesday when Evelyn ate a chip that was cooked in sunflower oil. A single chip. She was up 8 times in the night that night. Yep, 8 times because of a single chip.

The next evening she was rough-housing with Scott and fell on her arm. She was in a lot of pain with it, so we called the nurse at urgent care. She recommended just giving her some pain reliever, putting ice on it, and having her rest, then see how she was doing in the morning. We decided that in the morning we wouldn't ask her about it or anything, just see how she acted. She woke up at 10:00 p.m. and spent most of the night with Scott sleeping in the recliner because she sobbed and cried "owie" if you left her alone.

Friday night was also rough with Evelyn waking up multiple times in pain and Annabelle deciding to sleep poorly as well.

Last night I decided to actually pay attention to the time when we woke up in the night to get an idea of how she was really doing. Here's a run down of our night.

8:00 - both girls went to bed
11:00 - I went to bed
11:30 - Evelyn wakes up crying and needs comforted back to sleep
12:30 - Scott came to bed after being out with a friend for his birthday
2:30 - Annabelle wakes up to eat
3:30 - Evelyn wakes up
4:00 - Evelyn wakes up
4:30 - Evelyn wakes up and won't calm down or go back to sleep. She's ready for another dose of pain medicine, so we give her that and after spending some time on daddy's shoulder, she falls back to sleep.
6:00 - Annabelle wakes up to eat
6:15 - I hear squeals of delight coming from the nursery
6:20 - The squeals turn to cries so I go feed Annabelle again to put her back to sleep
6:35 - More delightful squeals are heard and she doesn't want to go back to sleep
7:37 - Annabelle goes down for a nap
7:38 - I go back to bed
7:40 - Evelyn wakes up
8:00 - I give up and tell Scott I need to trade
8:15 - Annabelle wakes up

For Halloween Scott and I are being zombies. No costume needed.
