This little one would not go to sleep. And I guess its obvious it didn't bother us too much. I tried to put her down at the "normal" time and she just wasn't having it, Nick tried again a bit later and still she was awake. So we just went with it. When you have 7 children, a happy awake child is actually a positive. (Now if it was every night that would get old, but once in awhile, fine.) We were able to spend time with this wee one that became a big sister while she was still a baby (at 13 months) and she was the center of attention.
