Harper has had no more than 5 hours of sleep each night since last Wednesday.  I don't know what is going on with this girl, but she's screaming when I put her down for bed and it can go on for hours.  I finally took her back to the doctor to make sure something wasn't horribly wrong.  She has a cold, but that seems to be it.  The doctor told me to let her cry and to NOT go in there.  I have been going in every 30 minutes to soothe her and it just seemed to be making things worse.

So, last night I put her to bed as usual and after she cried for 30 minutes I did not go in there.  About 10 minutes later she was asleep, and she slept until 6 when Brian's alarm clock was going off for 30 minutes (thanks, Bri).  Harper has always been a wonderful sleeper and bed time girl.  I think the cold, along with all of the last week's "commotion" with Christmas, got her into a funk.  Let's hope she keeps getting better. We both need it.

sleep like this, Harper...
