Mia has not been sleeping through the night. She will lay down perfectly fine at first and then she wakes up 3-4 hours later (if that) and will not lay back down. If she does go back to sleep in my arms, she will scream when laid back down in her crib. I had taken her to bed with us at this point a couple nights but this doesn't always work either. The night before last she woke up at 11pm and was all giggles and laughs and would not go back to sleep. Apparently she thought she was taking a nap or something and when she woke up it was play time!
Here is a video of her at about 2:30am...

She thought it was so funny! Mommy did NOT! I tried everything to get her to go back to sleep. I tried taking her to our bed, she just thrashed around, grunting and fussing. Tried laying down on the floor in her room with her, nope! FInally I just gave up (since I was wide awake anyway, as was she!) So we ate some Cheez-its (mommy) and some Puffs (Mia), drank some Pepsi (mommy) and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall on tv. This little spicy girl would not go to sleep for nothin'! She was being a little terd if I must be honest about the whole situation! Obviously she still has her days and nights mixed up. You would think she would be somewhat adjusted by now but I guess not since she seemed to think it was mid-day! Nevermind that it was pitch dark in the whole house!
Finally I was so dag-gone tired that I gave in and took her to her room, laid her down on a blanket on her floor (no toys) and layed next to her with the lights off and some soft lullabye music playing and ignored her. After some time had passed, it finally happened.... her little eyes closed ever so softly and she was out. I left her on the floor, covered her up good and fell asleep next to her.
