That would be Rowan. Poor little monkey is going through a new phase of independence which is marked by the ability to leave her crib and her room whenever she pleases. The flip side of this growing independence, however is a new awareness of DARK.
For the first time she is up and moving about in the dark, alone. And things don't look the same as they do in the day time. You bump, you fall, shadows rear up. It is scary.
So we have a child who with every small waking in the night decides to exercise her new ability to roam, but this in turn frightens her out of getting back to sleep.
Nights are very LONG here right now.
But it is all part of growing up (and she has shot up in height, outgrown all her shoes and had another language explosion, so no wonder she is disrupted during sleep, teething issues aside!).
Seeing it through her eyes helps us keep perspective and keeping our sleep goals in mind helps us through the wee hours as we sit (on command) in the chair in her room (she in her crib) while she practices as much independence as she can handle at 2 am!

Shhhh, don't tell anyone... I'm afraid of the dark too! When hubby is gone, I leave the lights on all night and have all the dogs in the bedroom with me and the babe ;)
