Another Night ... 

... of lots of waking (at least for Evelin). I was the bad husband who slept through the near-hourly wakeups until about 3:00 a.m. — after 3:00 a.m., Celeste was still waking up, but I was getting up, too. I was exhausted from her 12:30 a.m. wakeup the night before, where she stayed awake for about an hour, and I was more awake than not until I had to leave for work at 3:15 a.m., so I completely missed the rough night Celeste was having. Part of it was probably due to having had her immunization shots that afternoon, but the rest of it was probably just her sleep pattern ... or lack there of.

Actually, the doctor yesterday said that her sleep troubles could mean that she wants/needs less sleep than we do and/or we think she does. He said that, when they're tired, babies will fall asleep in strange places and positions. Evelin and I agreed that this did not describe Celeste.

Today, she had a mixed bag of good and bad naps. We'll see how she does tonight...

Well, Glory be...to steal a phrase from my granny.

A pedi who agrees that babies are diff't and may need less sleep than typical. This dude/dudette sounds like a keeper!!
Yeah, it's a good practice. Of the five docs, I think Celeste has seen four of them, and while they each have different styles (and sometimes give conflicting advice), we like 'em ...
