Sleep? Yes please!

So, we are finally getting a little bit more sleep. Elisabeth, my wonderful 14 month old daughter is responding well to the sleep training we’re putting her through (for the second time!). She has never been a good sleeper so we’re very happy that she is now, finally, sleeping through most nights.

Last night she woke up at 21.40 and cried so hard that I thought she was surely in enormous pain. But when I picked her up for a cuddle, she immediately stopped and snuggled against my shoulder. That’s when I realised I had been fooled, there was absolutely nothing wrong with her, she just fancied a cuddle. Understandable, yes. Acceptable, I guess as she is only 14 months old. Preferable, most definately not. So I put her back in bed and after another 5 minutes of screaming she went back to sleep. I settled on the floor under a, way too small, blanket and tried to have a bit of sleep myself as I knew she would be waking up every now and then to check I was still there. At 22.45 she was fast asleep and I managed to sneak out.

And this is how I found her this morning at 7.15…….


Even taking this picture with flash didn’t wake her up, sleepy little monkey. Let’s hope we’ll have some more of that over the weekend!
