Gabriella is a pretty good sleeper, despite the way she started out. When she does wake up at night she rolls over and goes back to sleep. Come about 6:00 am, though, she has some inner alarm clock that wakes her up and sends her into Mommy and Daddy's room, where she likes to climb up in bed and finish her slumber twisting her mother's hair into knots.
The problem in this is her mother (uh, that's me) is a deep sleeper. (As in an 18 wheeler could run right through the next room and I probably wouldn't hear it.) So in toddles Gabriella, and climbs up into bed and snuggles into me, and I notice nothing. Come 7:30 when Spiral's alarm clock goes off (and no, I don't hear that, either) poor Spiral is hanging onto the edge for dear life, I am squished up against him, and our daughter is sprawled out, snoring.
So it is her fault that I don't get any good sleep! (Please, don't mention to her that I stay up until one in the morning blogging.)
