Don't get me wrong, I still love the weekends, I'm just jaded because I'm on week two of both kids being up multiple times a night. I think they are trying to break me, too bad for them that I only know outdated classified information.

I don't expect Cordelia to be sleeping all night at this point, but I'm pretty stumped as to why Faith is waking up. Usually around midnight or 1am, she SCREAMS like Freddy Kruger is in her bedroom and I hustle down the hall to her room, and when I get in there she just stops screaming and asks to be tucked in. She usually goes right back to sleep and leaves me wide awake and struggling to get any sleep before the baby wakes up for a feeding.

At least when Cordelia wakes up, she has a good reason. Thighs like this don't just happen without serious dedication to eating:

Even with the lack of solid sleep, I did manage to get some running done instead of napping like a sane person. I ran 9 miles on Friday on the treadmill split into two runs (6 in the morning, 3 in the afternoon). On Saturday afternoon I was able to actually run with someone else, which was very exciting for me since my baby-dictated schedule hasn't let me do that often, and we did 8 windy miles. Today I thought I should nap instead of run, but then I couldn't fall asleep and wasted 45 minutes trying to nap. I channeled that anger into a 5 mile treadmill run. I seriously don't understand how I can be so tired, yet I can't take a nap lately.
So I ran 34 miles this week, and my favorite run by far was Saturday's outdoor run. I did more than one run this week with Faith while she watched Elmo and played with her old toys in the basement and while it's nice to run while she's awake, I miss being able to zone out while I run. I'm always worried she's going to try to hop on the treadmill with me, even though she rarely even gets close.
Man, this post is full of all kinds of excitement. You're welcome world, you're welcome.
