Sierra - my little sleeper that has never caused problems at night - has started waking up and calling us. Sometimes it's to go to the bathroom, but we have also found her merely standing in the middle of her room muttering incoherently. Sleep walking/talking perhaps? It's rather amusing and weirdly scary at the same time. We wonder if she is cold and that causes her to break from her slumber. When we ask her during the day she adamantly says "no!" The reason we think she might be cold is because she refuses to sleep with anything but her thin, little beloved baby blanket. Couple that with the fact that it's gotten down to near freezing at night for the last week and you likely have a chilled little girl. Her three year old brain seems to not be computing "cold" at night.
We're not sure how to convince her that another blanket would be a good idea. I love big thick heavy blankets. Of course this could just be a phase too.

Sawyer, on the other hand, has been sleeping through the night again most nights (knock on wood!) waking around 6ish and then sleeping until 7:30ish. He is on a "solid" regiment of real food and no longer feels the need to nurse in the middle of the night.

Overall I have been feeling a million times better in the sleep and energy department. Sierra's disruptions only take a few minutes and Trevor's been dealing with her more than me.

Here's to sleep -

A good night's sleep makes all the difference in the world. As I recall -- my kids went through all kinds of phases with their sleep patterns. Let's hope she gets over this one soon.
