Davie was NOT happy with us. Neither Steven nor I had seen her like this. We were a little freaked out. Finally after an hour or so, she tolerated me walk/bouncing around the house. I managed to change her diaper somehow. She seemed somewhat calm, and so I put her to bed. After she woke up 3 more times, I decided to move this party to the living room. I put her in her swing and rested my eyes on the couch. By 3am, I had slept maybe 2 hours (very unrestful sleep), so I thought it was Steven's turn. Thankfully, she did better after that for Steven, and I got to sleep for 3 or 4 hours until it was my turn again.
It was rough. I feel bad for the people that have these nights every evening. How do they do it?
I did have an epiphany though. Even though I drastically reduced my caffeine-intake, I still have a Dr. Pepper every once in awhile. I think I see a pattern if I'm remembering correctly. Each time I pump after I have a Dr. Pepper . . . Davie seems a little fussier than usual after she eats.
So - no more Dr. Pepper for us.
I should go take a nap now.
