Why I Disappeared...

So it's been over a week since the blog was updated--oops!  Aurora's been having trouble sleeping and so, consequently, I also am sleep deprived.  Getting only 6 hours of broken sleep (if even that) just doesn't encourage creativity in my experience.

Last night was the icing on the sleep-deprivation cake: Aurora became terrified of closing her eyes.  Not sure where this fear came from, but she was able to tell us fairly clearly that that's what she was afraid of.  She would become extremely upset any time that her eyes started closing (from her being so tired) or when we demonstrated with our eyes that her eyelids would open again.  She was so preciously pitiful sitting on my lap crying and waving night-night to her eyes. Poor thing.  Wil ended up staying with her in her room until she was almost falling over from exhaustion, then he rocked her while she wailed, but she couldn't help but fall asleep.  She hasn't had any more trouble with her eyes shutting today, though she's not wanting to go to sleep right now.  At least she's only playing quietly in her room, which is a great improvement over last night.  This kiddo certainly keeps us guessing.

So, with that in mind, I'm going to only post a couple videos. Enjoy!

Our newest attempt at sledding: Aurora insisted on pulling the sled and refused to ride in it. I guess whatever works, right? :)

Aurora working on threading ribbon through some of her sort-and-stack blocks from Melissa & Doug. This is a brand-new skill that she worked on all afternoon today.

That's all for now!
