Tomoe’s going through a new phase. A phase in which she refuses to sleep until 1 or 2 am and constantly cries if she’s put in her bed. If we go to pick her up, she becomes very active and it just makes it worse. She cannot be held, as she just constantly moves around. We can’t put her on the floor without her grabbing everything and trying to eat it. We can’t put her in her bouncer, because she gets herself out of the harness and bounces like crazy while standing up, which in turn puts her in danger of falling out and hurting herself. So then it’s back to bed and more crying.
At least the crying doesn’t last more than 15 or 20 minutes when she finally settles down. But what does she do? She plays with something in her bed. Then she starts crying again a few minutes later. She’s easy to get to sleep an hour or two after waking up in the morning, though. But late at night, when she’s very sleepy, she fights her fatigue and complains about it.
