My 1 year old daughter Briani has what I call horror film lungs. When she shrieks, the walls and windows shake. My little girl is as determined and tenacious as her parents (she’s got a lot of my wife and me in her).

If we let her (and we have done this many times because we fear hearing her shriek) she will stay up with my wife and I until well past midnight. Briani has also been spoiled about where she sleeps so on most nights she often stays in our bed.
