Sleep? Anyone?

Thankfully, Hannah has been sleeping good. She's even been managing to fall asleep during nap time a bit more than usual lately. But as for the rest of us? I think we're all a bit lacking in the sleep department. Nathan takes a good afternoon nap, but then has a terrible time getting to sleep at night. He's scared of half the stuff in his room (no more horses looking at him, and get rid of that Koala bear that looks like an owl. are there bears in my room, mommy? Nate scared! What dat noise, mommy? Thunder? WHY it doing that. Nate scared. Sleep with me, Mommy!) So, he's awake til, like... 10:00pm??? Oh boy. Finally get him trucked off to sleep land, get 2 hrs. of shut eye ourselves, and then "wahhh!" It's the baby. She's been up at 12:30, 2:30, 3:30, 5:30 and 6:30. Ok, not all in one night! But two of those times per night, YES. And I'm not liking it! See, she picks these times to drink big, full bottles of warm and yummy milk. She doesn't have much to do with a bottle during the day. She's up and has to see what's going on in the world. So, she'll take one right before her morning and afternoon naps and then before bedtime and that's about the most milk you'll squeeze into her, other than a few ounces scattered throughout her waking hours. So she's up for milk. Then, along about 5:30, sometimes 3:30-you'll see a little lone figure scamper through the doorway with puppy and blankie and sometimes a little tractor in his hands. He runs to daddy's side of the bed. He wants to climb up and snuggle in. If it's 5:30, we might let him stay. If it's 3:30, it's back to bed he goes! Then, about 6:30, I am up. Time for devotions and shower-exercise?? And towards the beginning of this week, I could barely sleep in between all of this nonsense!
It's all beginning to take a toll....
I'm ready for some sleep! And I'm ready for all the little munchkins to sleep too! Just glad I "finally" got the afternoon Quiet Time/Nap time to line up for them all. (I hope I didn't just jinx myself here!)
Ok, this is a strange post to be writing at 7:30 a.m. Hahaha! I think I'd better get myself going. Head to the shower. Begin this day. And hope for more sleep tonight. "zzzzzzzzzz" OH! say what?! Good morning! :) (Is it morning already?!)
