As you will recall, we went to bed around 11pm on Wednesday night. Around 11:45, Joseph woke up for a snack. This isn't a big deal. I go into his room, climb into the guest room bed, and nurse him back to sleep. I give him a big snuggle and then tuck him back into his bed. 99% of the time, this keeps him happy for at least 3 hours, at night, usually much more. At 12:45, more Joseph. I became delusional sometime in the middle of the night.

Suffice it to say that between 11pm and 4am I was up 7 times. I fed a baby, burped a baby, loved a baby. Then Isaac started. I took him to pee twice. He got up again, playing his favorite game,"I hurt my...." For a few weeks it was his finger. It recently became his foot. He was up four times.

Nathan's alarm goes off at 4:30. He very graciously got the baby when Jospeh woke. Nathan pacified him until around 7:15 so I could get a little sleep, phew. I nursed Joseph and put him down for a nap.

Sometime in those 3 hours of sleep, the hamster reappeared! Nathan walked into our TV room where Celeste and Lydia were up watching a cartoon. Nathan needed the girls to hold Joseph so Daddy could shower before work. As he walked into the family room, Fluffy ran past him and behind a BIG dresser in our family room. Great amounts of teamwork, that did NOT involve me, rescued Fluffy. She is now safe in her cage. I got plenty of sleep last night, and all is right with the world, again, for at least five minutes until someone hits or pushes or looks at someone else.
