Oh Emerson...

Last night was awful. Both babies went to bed at 7 just like usual and both immediately went to sleep (since they skipped their nap). Around midnight Emerson woke up screaming, which is incredibly unusual for her. She pretty much never wakes up at night (whereas Eli still wakes up every single night).

I went in and got her and brought her back to our bed hoping that she would fall asleep. Then I got up and put her back in her crib. As soon as I set her down she started screaming again, but I was rubbing her head and that calmed her and I was again hopeful that she would fall asleep.

I slowly backed out of the room and once I left completely she started screaming again. So I brought her back to our bed where she proceeded to just stare at me until around 4:30 in the morning. I'm not kidding it was the weirdest thing ever, she just laid there, awake, staring.

Finally, at 4:30 she fell asleep and I carried her back to bed for the last time not surprisingly she then slept in until 10:30. Which isn't surprising considering she spent her evening staring at me. It was so weird and random and it better not be a recurrent event. Now today I can hardly function and tomorrow marks my entry back to work after being out sick for the last week. Please let her sleep tonight.

Also poor Eli on one of my attempts at getting her back to sleep in her crib he tiredly stood up and looked around confused at all the noise. I darted out the room before he saw me and he dropped back down to sleep.

Maybe she had a really bad dream? Poor baby.
