Pigtails and sleeping issues

Last Thursday, Anna Riley woke up screaming at 4 am (yes screaming, not crying).  Riley was getting ready for work so we both ran in there.  She was so upset and wouldn't calm down.  I brought her to our room to try to calm her down and she was so upset.  Finally after some Mickey Mouse she calmed down a little. 

For the whole weekend, she seemed almost scared to get in her bed.  She has always loved her bed and really never cried much when we put her down for naps or at night.  One day she got so upset, she threw up everywhere.  I tried rocking her to sleep which has never really worked with AR (she won't actually go to sleep until you lay her down unless she is just exhausted).  I let her just sleep with us one night.  She finally got back to normal around Sunday. 

She had been without a pacy for a whole week and she would do fine during naps and bedtime so I don't think it was that.  We thought she might have had a bad dream that scared her on Thursday.  I also thought she might be getting more teeth but she was fine until we got anywhere close to her bed so I don't think it was just that.  Very strange, but knock on wood, we are back to normal!!

The pigtails are precious!

Addison has done that (minus the throwing up), but they say it is common for toddlers to have night terrors - super sadness! Addison will still wake up calling out, yelling, or just talking. I'm glad she's better though!
