Two steps forward, one step back

So I get that life is a journey and everything, but sometimes being at Point B is preferable to being at Point A. That's why you're trying to get there in the first place, right?! Unfortunately, kids have their own sweet pacing, which all too often includes backwards detours.

After a few consecutive nights of only one feeding during the wee hours, the Bunny woke up three times last night. I got about six hours of sleep, but in four separate chunks. I did not feel awesome this morning. I'm sure she'll be right on track soon, but I'm going back to work in a couple of weeks and having the baby sleep through the night is critical! And three months after being miraculously potty trained, the Bug has reverted back to diapers (for Number One only, knock on wood). While that's apparently common for kids with new siblings, it doesn't really sweeten the two-in-diapers deal for the 'rents. Rough week.
