I would say that it's probably physical growth spurt, intellectual growth spurt, or change in activities. But they all require the same solution. Just leave her in her crib/bed to play by herself. She will eventually get bored and go back to sleep. I just would suggest staying out of her room. My little man thinks it's play time if I go in. If I don't he knows to go back to sleep, because it's pretty boring in the dark. This stage should pass soon enough. Hope that it gets better soon. I am sure you would like to be sleeping too!
