Sleepus Interuptus

I've definitely figured out a pattern to Piper's sleep issues.  If she wakes up in the night, I can expect to be woken up generally about 2 more times later in the night.  But most nights, she'll sleep right through.  I don't get it.  I've seen the 3 wake ups a night thing happening for the past few weeks on the nights that she does wake up.  In fact, the past 2 times she's done this, it's been the first time she just is half awake and cries in her bed.  I go in and cover her back up.  The next 2 times she comes into our room.  I walk her back to bed, cover her up and that's that.  She has learned her lesson about middle of the night tantrums though....I hope.

It's almost as if on the nights she wakes up her sleep cycle is somehow interrupted and it causes the multiple wakings.  I know that Bryce went through a long period of on again off again mild sleep issues too and she seems to have a lot in common with him in terms of sleep.  (She goes to sleep easily once she lays still unlike Caroline who still takes a long time to go to sleep.)

Jason got on my case this morning asking when I was going to get my butt back in gear and return to my early morning workouts since I haven't since getting back from Disney and being sick.  I told him when my 3 year old stops waking me up 3 times a night.  He hadn't heard a thing.  Doh!
