It's no secret that iBean is not a good sleeper. She has her moments, but she still wakes two or three (four or five) times a night.
Last night, she went six hours before waking, which is quite good for her. I went in and nursed her, then she went back to sleep.
Three hours later, iBean woke up again. I went in, nursed her, fell asleep in the chair while nursing, then upon waking half an hour later, put her back in her crib. Only she was not tired. She was WIDE awake. At 4:30 am. Not being one to put up with such shenanigans as waking up at 4:30 am for the day, I left her to squak and talk in her crib while I tried to catch some more z's.
After 30 minutes of quacking, I reluctantly went in when she progressed to full-on crying. I walked into her room, picked her up, and she said "Mama!" for the very first time.
I cuddled and nursed her (again) and smiled in my state of groggy bliss, forgeting all about the fact that she was just being a turd.
