The worst part was waking up thinking it was almost morning and then looking at the clock to see that it was only midnight. We all did it too.
Then, at around 3:00a, Josiah thought it was playtime. That wasn’t so bad, though — none of us could really sleep. After playing a little, Josiah tried to sleep, but couldn’t quite get there. We turned some Nora Jones on (I forget if I’ve mentioned it here before, but Nora always helps Josiah when he’s restless). But, after putting Josiah in his crib, he proceeded to sit and dance through all but about three tracks on the CD. He finally plopped over, exhausted out of his wits.
All things considered — like a terriblely sore, stiff neck — we all did get some much needed sleep. In fact, both Josiah and Julianna are still fading in and out of sleep every few minutes.
