To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

Turns out we were a bit premature in our celebration of Ian's sleeping patterns (see May 29, 2004 entry). As we approach his ninth birthday, he's fallen into a habit of waking at least twice during the night--often around midnight and then around 4:00 or 5:00.

So, we're consulting books and Parenting magazine in search of a strategy to encourage more extended sleeping.

Sigh.

8.75 months of disrupted sleep is beginning to take its toll on Mom and Dad.
