In Like a Lion

How does the old saying go?  If March comes "in like a lion" then it will go "out like a lamb."  I realize this typically refers to the weather, but the climate outside certainly does not match the atmosphere in my home today.  Ever since the "China Bomb" was dropped, the ambient temperature has dropped about 3 degrees.  Last night I got up out of bed 27 times from Micah waking up.  Yup, I counted.

27 times.

Most of the times I would just stumble into his bedroom and replace the nuk in his mouth, but when it was 4:00 am and I hit number 14, Evan actually roused from his sleep some to check in with how things were going.  Even my heavy sleeper of a husband was shocked to find out I had been out of bed more than a dozen times!  He suggested I try feeding the baby, so number 23 became a feeding at 5:00 am.

I am so incredibly tired today I can hardly stand it.  Combine the sleepless night with Micah's continued determination to avoid a nap and it makes for a very frustrated Mommy.  And for good measure, this is how Isaiah feels today:

In like a lion.  "Rarrr......"

Ok, I'm open to suggestions.  Do we start letting him cry it out?  Take away his nuk?  Play soft music in the bedroom?  Do you have any secret "make my baby sleep" secrets?  Do tell.
