12:00 Midnight– After numerous unsuccessful attempts at laying her down in her crib, mama finally gives up, throws on the baby sling, and totes the wide-awake Bee around, circumnavigating the entirety of the upstairs floor repeatedly as The Bee looks perfectly content but hardly sleepy.
12:15 a.m. – Success! The Bee begins to lose control–she can no longer keep her eyes open; they’re getting heavier by the moment and just in time! Mama’s back is about to break in half… Things are looking good and Ry says, “look at that, she’ll sleep through the night tonight…”
12:18 a.m. – It looks like Ry’s right. She’s fast asleep; aside from opening her eyes open just the slightest bit to make sure she’s still the center of the action there’s no rousting her now…. we think….
…At this point, we quietly lay her down in her crib and tiptoe away, ever so softly….
I think we all managed to fall asleep at 6:00 a.m.
