Apparently this is all the sleep Macie needs at night. She's been sleeping, fairly consistently, from ~8p to ~5a. Then she wakes up, talking and ready to start her day.
Too bad I'm not ready to start mine.
So I feed her and try to get her to go back to sleep. Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't, and I end up lying in bed listening to her until I give in and try nursing her again. Then, by the time I crawl back into bed, it's 5:45a, my alarm is set to go off in 30 minutes, and I can't fall back to sleep. Of course.
Come on, Macie! Sleep for ONE MORE HOUR! Do it for your sleep-deprived mother who is smack-dab in the middle of her worst two work months of the year! I'm begging you!
