Catching Up on Sleep 

I'm sure blogging this will cause a relapse of the previous two nights, but last night was pretty decent. The big difference (during the day) was that Evelin didn't try getting Celeste to go down for a nap until she was really, really, really, really ready for one. She ended up taking only one nap around noon, but it was close to a two-hour nap.

She went to bed around 6:15 p.m., and slept reasonably well. There was a wake up around the 90-minute mark to eat (she was too tired to feed well when she went down), and a few little cries a little past 8:30 p.m. and a little before 10:00 p.m. She woke up to eat at 11:00 p.m. or so and again at 3:15 a.m. or so. At a little past 4:00 a.m. she came to our bed and slept through to a bit past 6:00 a.m., getting up to feed at 6:30 a.m.

Albeit with a few interruptions here and there, Evelin and I got a decent amount of sleep (me a little more than her, both because I didn't have to get up to feed Celeste, and because I conked out on the couch for an hour or so while watching Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow — Evelin is on somesort of Jude Law kick, she also rented I ♥ Huckabees.

Helping me conk out were both the fact that I was totally exhausted and a glass or three of 1999 თბილღვინო (T'bilvino) ოჯალეში (Odjaleshi or Оджалеши), a nicely structured, fruity semi-sweet red from Georgia. It tasted almost like a weaker ruby port, the flavor was nice despite being on the sweet side of things; there were notes of plums and other black currant — very pleasant.

Blogger Commenting:
We had our best night of sleeping in a really long time too!

Must be something in the (night) air!
What did you make of Sky Captain? I enjoyed Ms Jolie's character, but I couldn't really get into the rest of it...
Anita: Maybe it's the moon phases? She's been good today, taking a 45 minute nap around 10:15 a.m. and just heading down for another, we think, right now (around 2:30 p.m.). Hopefully the night will be restful for her (and us) ...

Patrick: It was an interesting recreation of pulp action adventures and I found it pretty easy to stay engaged and to pick up with the action after sleeping through about 40 minutes of it (from Paltrow showing up at Law's compound to about 5 minutes before Jolie entered the scene. What I saw I was interested in, but I was so tired that suspension of disbelief was super-easy.
