It is amazing how much you appreciate 8 hours of sleep after a week of sleep deprivation. Pure bliss.
I can't say for certain what caused Jillian's sleeplessness. A tooth still has not made an appearance, so perhaps it isn't teething. I'm always thinking she might be teething but then nothing comes of it. So annoying. Perhaps it was something related to the diarrhea, which has improved significantly. The doctor had her start antibiotics Wednesday night, but the improvement happened so quickly after her first dose that I don't know if it was really the meds that made the difference or whether it was just time to get better. Either way we're in a much better place, so I'll cast my compulsive need to understand the cause of all problems aside.
And many of you are right. Despite all the sleeplessness, Jillian was generally a very happy baby when awake. Everybody is always commenting on how smiley her pictures are. What I haven't mentioned is that I have trained Jillian to smile for the camera. Now all I have to do is break it out, and she immediately erupts into a great, big grin! Maybe she could go into baby modeling. Jeramy might like it, because then her could make a career out of being a pageant dad rather than going back to work. Of course he also finds exploiting your children distasteful, so maybe that wouldn't work out after all.
