Alexandra was 21 months yesterday

I can't believe so much time has passed, and she's grown up so much.

This week, she jumped in the air off two feet - a 24 month milestone. I actually suspected she was doing this a few weeks ago, but I got conclusive proof Monday night.

She's still not talking much, but it's clear that she is speaking in sentences when she does talk... it's just most of the time I can't understand her.

The last couple of weeks something has changed for her and her regular happy bedtime of 9pm has been changed for some unknown reason. She is now overtired at 9pm, but we can't get her to bed any earlier, and in some cases she won't go to sleep until 11pm - a ridiculous hour.

Monday night we decided to try the old "just keep putting her back in her bed when she runs out" trick. My one friend had told me it took them 17 tries before their kid got the idea that he was supposed to stay in bed. My other friend told me it took her kid 32 tries. We gave up and admitted defeat after 41 episodes of putting her to bed. She thought it was the best game ever. I wish I knew what the issue was, what changed, why she can't fall asleep and what I could do to help her. She finally got to sleep about 11:20pm. That's just stupid.

Work is still super stressful. I'm completely exhausted. Yet notice it's 4:41 and I'm awake. Can't sleep due to thinking of all the things that need doing. At least my dad's now out of the hospital - that's one relief.

I miss her so much when I'm working this hard.

I wish you'd spammed us with more pictures of her as she grows. In my head she is still that baby in your profile pic.
