Well, last night sucked

I knew I would jinx myself when I made a post on the bump yesterday about Evie sleeping all the time.

She woke up around 4:00 pm yesterday and she was up for the normal 4-5 hours. Well, 9 o'clock rolls around, which is normally her bed time, and she gets really fussy. Great. She's over-tired. I rock her and she falls asleep for about 30 minutes, so I try putting her in her swing. Screaming ensues. Pick her up and try rocking her again. Her eyes get really heavy, but they just won't shut. I get her drowsy again. Put her in the swing. What happens next, can you guess? If you said, "screaming ensues" you would be correct. Come on down and claim your prize!

This went on for the next hour. I finally took her upstairs, with the seahorse, and rocked her to sleep. I had to pump in an hour, so I didn't want to fall asleep with her like I normally do. So I laid her in her bassinet. Yeah. She stayed in there for about 20 minutes. Then...more screaming. I tried feeding her, rocking her, etc. She would stop screaming, but she was incredibly fussing.

She finally fell asleep for good at 1:00 am. She woke up to eat at 4:30 am, then 6:00 am, then 7:30 am. Needless to say, it was a rough night last night. She's sleeping in her swing right now, peacefully I might add. We shall see how tonight goes.

::crosses fingers that Evie calms the eff down and goes to sleep tonight::
