Sleep Deprivation

We went to visit Grandpa and Marlene for the weekend. They live in Decatur, Indiana and the trip should have only taken us 3 hours, but it took much longer especially on the way back because of construction in Toledo. It was worth the trip because Izzy got to visit with her grandparents who she doesn't get to see enough. She had a great time although she didn't sleep too well. I thought maybe it was because she was in an unfamilier place but.....the lack of sleep continues for both of us. She hardly slept last night. She wakes up like she's being stabbed to death. I know that sounds extreme but it's that bad. It's not like she's fussing a little or doesn't want to go to sleep. She's so tired and will eventually fall asleep but then she'll wake up after a few minutes. And it's not just at night but during the day as well. So, it could be teething or seperation anxiety or she may be getting sick....not sure....But please pray that whatever it is, God will calm and soothe her and give her little body rest. I would love to get some sleep as well.

I'll post pictures of her with the great-grandparents soon.
