My baby Abe never sleeps. OK, maybe not NEVER, but not nearly enough. He has a habit of getting up at exactly 3:18am and staying awake until around 5am or sometimes just staying up! Despite my best efforts, he usually doesn't fall asleep in the evening until around 10pm. I usually stay up until midnight or so doing chores, studying and putting back everything Abe has gotten out during the day. Then at precisely 3:18am, I am awoken to the feeling of someone digging their baby toenails in my back, a bottle being poked in my eye or a wet diaper sitting on my face.
Yesterday I noticed Abe yawning at around 8:30pm. I actually felt giddy inside thinking that he might go to bed early. I tucked him in as usual with his lullaby light and water bottle. His eyes slowly closed and then suddenly opened wide, he sat up, hurled his bottle across the room and RAN laughing through the house and literally did not stop running until 10:30pm.
