Over the last few nights Noah has been changing his night-time routine a bit. It was (on Tuesday night and before) this: bath, read book, brush teeth and go to bed with nursing, fall asleep. Now (& I hope this doesn't last too much longer) it is this: bath, read book, brush teeth and scream at the top of his lungs while saying "no, night-night... couch!" over and over. He is plenty tired by the time we head to bed and just. will. not. go. He wants to sit on the couch and read books or watch TV. Tonight he didn't want to nurse at all, he fell asleep laying on Daddy's stomach, without nursing! I about had a fit! I couldn't believe that he did it, and I am not ready for him to stop but if this is what he wants to do, then that's what will happen. Anyway, the screaming at the top of his lungs before bed is not fun for anyone, since we are all exhausted and want to sleep. Ben and Hannah do very well with it, they try to ignore it and go to sleep, as hard as that is for 4 and 5 year olds.

I sure hope this is a quick phase that gets back to normal!!
