Eliza Grace was born on March 15, 2006, at 26 weeks, 4 days, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and measuring just 11.5 inches long. She is the light of my soul and this is the story of our life in the big city.

Sleep Calculation

For those keeping track:

Eliza has been home from the NICU for 1,497 nights.

It has been 1,597 nights since she was born.

She has slept through the night 59 of those nights.

To anyone who has been wondering why I have looked exhausted for the past 1,597 days please see the statistics above.

Mine doesn't sleep through the night either. We call it '2 a.m. party time.' It lasts until 5 a.m. We take turns wearing ear plugs in case the pump goes off or he chokes from reflux at night. Such fun. I love how there is no solution to this either. No suggestions here. Just empathy.

Just think, when E and E are old enough to stay out, they'll be primed for Jouvert Jump Up at the Saba Carnival since it goes from midnight until dawn :)

My older son didn't sleep through the night until he was 6 months old. My younger son didn't have a complete night's sleep until he was 8 months old. That means 420 nights of broken/little sleep for me. I now know that that is NOTHING. I cannot imagine the strength that you must have. You are an AMAZING mom! Absolutely amazing and inspirational!

Lara: you are too kind.

I would have hoped that all this extra "awakeness" activity would have caused some extra calories to burn off, but no such luck for me.

I am hoping to celebrate night "60" before I get to my 60th birthday!

Wow! How do you stay awake through the day? Just wait till she gets older and you can tell her all the nights you went without sleep. I will sleep when I am older. We always have a guest in our room at 4 in the morning, and Brady is so inconsistent with his sleep schedule.
