Sleep Deprivation...

The last two nights Brooklynn has been up at least 6 times but I think closer to 8. Sometimes she will eat and go back to sleep, and then wake up crying...other times she just wants to be held. I am exhausted. She is fighting a cold (runny nose, cough, etc.) and I'm assuming she is just having trouble sleeping, but also has been up a lot lately from all the teeth she's getting. (Ok, just two so far, but I think there are more on the way). Her and Josh have both been sick the last few days.
I'm surprised I'm functioning at all.
I'd say within the last 2 or 3 weeks or so she started waking up at least 3 times a night. It used to be only one at around 5 or 6...we are seriously backsliding.
I hope this is just a phase. I think it was easier to deal with when she was a newborn and I expected her to wake up all the time. Now that she WAS sleeping better and now that we're back to the waking up it is so much worse. (that and when she was really little she was in our room; now I have to walk to her room and I'm bumping into everything because I'm like a walking zombie.)

I am sure it is the teeth. Andrew had a few rough nights and it was when he was getting in both his teeth too! Teething is fun :-)
