Ok dd woke up @ 6:30 napped 40 minutes for the car ride to bbq. Left bbq @ 10:00 pasted out in car, woke up @ 1:00 repeating every conversation people had with her word for word. She is turning 2 next week she has been eating so much in the past month it is scary. She is no where over weight 24 pounds 33 inches. Is this a phase. She told me she is fine to go back to bed. Oh I need sleep. By 9:00 am we had already done a days worth of puzzles, books, coloring, playing with trains, and eating....

Growth spurt, for body and mind I suppose!   Both of my boys went through a phase in the 2-3 year where they would be awake for about an hour in the middle of the night.  I learned to be as quiet as I could through it, not engage in a conversation.  DS1 would often be upset in that time, tossing and turning, wanting things from me (for me to lie a certain way or whatever).... but it was a phase.  Just keep it dark and quiet and act asleep as much as you can. 

 

They are sooooo busy at that age, doing a million things during the day and continuing to process it all at night.  In my experience the sleep calms down and evens out at around 3 years old.  The activity level hasn't slowed down yet.... and they are 4 and 6 now......   :)

Thanks for responding :) I was kind of thinking the same thing yesterday.  I don't think her activity level will change either that's kind of always been the same.  I try not to giggle because it is cute to listen to.  Even if its in the middle of the night :).   She askes for food sometimes and my husband I just smile at each other and hope she goes back to sleep.  She sleeps in her own room so that does help that she can't see me or I would really be in trouble from giggling..  I can't imagine having more than one right now.
