haunted house

Since we moved, we have been easy on Lils when it came to bed time. Moving is not that easy on a two year old, at least mine.
We sang her to sleep nightly, or at least sat by her room.
(don't judge)
Which is no big deal if she tired.
But. If she's not tired, it's a deal.
You can only sing church primary songs for so long before you go criz-azy.
The past few days she is re-learning how to fall asleep with out our help.

Our house sounds haunted with all the moaning.

Next on the list: getting Eden to re-learn how to sleep through the night.


I literally can not remember the last time I slept through the night. Not exaggerating.

One of the hardest parts of (young) parenthood: listening to your baby cry who just wants to nurse for a mid-night/early morning snack and not giving it to her. Ouch.

oh i know that pain so well. we stopped feeding caden at night when he was about 8 months old. it took him about 3 nights to figure out that he wasn't going to nurse and he's been sleeping through the night ever since. those 3 nights were the hardest ever though! good luck with it.

the move back east for us totally threw off our kids sleeping habits. that, and being at the very edge of of the eastern time zone. it stays light so late here - so we invested in black out shades for the kids rooms. just a three hour difference took our kids weeks to adjust to. not fun! good luck!
