No Sleep For Mommy!

I got a call around 8:30 last night from the parents of the little girl(we'll call her Abby) that I keep. Her mom's water broke and they were bringing Abby over to spend the night.
Shortly after she got here, I put her to sleep in her her room(our spare room)and she went to sleep immediately. I decided to go to bed early(around 9:30) because Abby usually wakes up around 6-7! She usually sleeps very well here, maybe waking up once in the middle of the night.
Evan ALWAYS sleeps through the night(since he was 4 months old..before that he was up ALL the time) and I can count on one hand how many times he's woken up in the middle of the night since then. Well last night he woke up at 11:45 crying. I looked on my summer video monitor and decided to go in there so he wouldn't wake Abby up. I FINALLY got him back to sleep and I went back to bed.
UNTIL 1:30 when Abby thought it was HER turn to cry out! I got up immediately so that she wouldn't wake Evan. I sang her a song and put her back down.
Well, Evan woke up too. So back into Evan's room I went. All I had to do was give him is paci and he was out!
By now its 2 and I'm WIDE awake and waiting for one of them to cry out. I am finally able to drift off to sleep around 3. Hubby's Alarm clock VERY LOUDLY goes off at 5:30 and I was worried that it would wake Abby or Evan, so I was on alert until after he left for work.
I FINALLY went back to sleep around 6 and slept until 7:30 when Abby called for me to come get her! I am thankful that she slept until 7:30!

Oh and Brig reminded me...
Abby's mom had a very healthy little boy VERY early this morning! Mom and baby are doing GREAT! I cant wait until after Abby's nap to go see him! Pin It!
