My Snooze Alarm

AK is once again KILLING ME.

I had just gotten used to the whole routine of her sleeping from 8 or so until 4:45, feeding her and having her go back to sleep until 7:30. I figured 5.5 hours of uninterrupted sleep was better than the 2 or 3 hours I had been getting previously.

And I was right.

Last night went a little something like this:
At 1:45 I gave her the paci.
At 2:00 I applied Orajel and reinserted the paci
At 2:30 I kicked the Hoos out of bed to give her Tylenol
At 2:33 the Hoos asked where the Tylenol was
At 2:35 AK started screaming
At 2:37 the Hoos finally gave AK the Tylenol
At 2:50 the Hoos finally got AK to go back to sleep
At 4:45 AK woke up again
At 4:47 I found her SITTING UP in her crib staring at me
At 5:06 after feeding her, I crawled back to bed
At 6:30 my alarm went off

I had just been thinking about how I was going to eliminate the 4:45 feeding when the time comes to stop nursing. I jinxed myself.
