After doing some research and reading I feel a little better about the night terrors. It turns out there is mostly nothing to do except keep her safe and put her back to bed when they are over.

Thanks for the comments and helpful links!

I have been MIA for longer than I intended... I'm going to work on that...

I've been asked to start traveling again for my job. As always that is a double edge sword. I love going - I always have and in the last few years I've missed it.

I haven't gone to China since I found out I was pregnant with Ellie. Actually the last trip I took I was pregnant and didn't even know it. (I wonder all the time if that had something to do with the bad outcome...)

But now I've got little man and Amelia. It's always been hard on Amelia to have me gone - but she was able to have 100% of T's attention. Now it really is going to be tough for them. And then there's Little man - at almost 8mo we're still rolling along with the nursing. We had some speed bumps but all of that is pretty much long gone. I'm enjoying doing it much more than I ever expected to. And honestly, I don't know if I will be ready to give it up in September when I leave.

Night Terrors

I know I'm a terrible blogger and don't really deserve to ask anything of anyone who still reads this sorry excuse for a blog - but I really could use your help.

My beautiful, sweet, amazing little girl is having a terrible time right now. And I'm at a complete loss for what to do.

Most nights she wakes up 3 or 4 times screaming and crying. Nothing seems to comfort her, because she is never truely awake.

In the morning she doesn't even remember waking up or having bad dreams.

Is there anything we can do to help her? Is this a sign of something serious?

I just don't know what to do to help her.
