Maybe I've been spoiled, but all my other kids were sleeping through the night by the time they got to this age (almost 8 months). Not Rylen. No this boy still gets up 2-3 times each night. He's not up for long - he'll usually go back to sleep within 10-15 minutes. But that's still an interruption in my sleep. Considering I rarely make it to bed before 11 p.m. or midnight, and I have to be up no later than 5 a.m. (though earlier is better), waking up 2-3 times in this short stretch means that I am chronically short on sleep. Thank goodness for naptime on the bus!

I dream (during the short time I'm asleep) of the time when Rylen decides it's okay to stay asleep all night.

I feel your pain. Ethan was my only child to sleep through the night before he was like 15 months old! If you need any toothpicks to prop open your eyelids, just let me know and I'll drop them in the mail tomorrow!
