There are some good things happening on the sleep front. After a month of having to get Elisabeth up almost every night at different times, for a week now we have been able to go back to our sleep training routine where we go into her room when she cries and stay with her until … Continue reading Sleep update
I knew I shouldn't have said yesterday that we did the right thing, I knew I shouldn't have said we might be getting the hang of things, I knew I shouldn't have asked for another night sleep, I should have known that all that would only lead to one thing......... Yes, you guessed right, we … Continue reading I knew I shouldn’t have…….
After another week of bad nights, we finally had a breakthrough last night. We think Elisabeth has been teething now for a while, but yesterday we got a bit worried that she was playing us. So when she started crying after having been in bed for about an hour, we decided to leave her and … Continue reading Sleep update
Last night was another bad one, to be fair the good ones now hugely outnumber the bad ones so we are very happy.....most of the time. Elisabeth went to sleep fine but woke up at 22.00, just as we were going to bed, typical! My husband sat in her room for an hour trying to … Continue reading The things we do to make them sleep….
So today was our 7th wedding anniversary. Seven years..........wow..........that kind a crept up on me. I can remember the wedding as if it was yesterday, just family and a couple of friends, no big car to pick us up, no big dress costing a month's wages, nothing flash, just me and him and the promise … Continue reading Anniversary

Last night was another good one, Elisabeth slept from 7 until 6.45 which is brilliant. It's amazing how obsessed with sleep you can become when you're sleep deprived. Just a few weeks … Continue reading Loving the sleep
Yawn........getting up at 5am is bad enough when it happens during the week, but on a Sunday it seems to be twice as hard. Elisabeth woke up at 5am screaming so loud that I jumped out of bed and got to her in about 3 seconds. She wasn't impressed when all she got was a … Continue reading This is your wake up call!
So, another good night sleep, woohoo! Soon I will have to come up with some other excuse to not do the housework, not pay attention at work, not do any exercise, not start my diet because if things continue like they are, lack of sleep will no longer be a valid excuse 🙂 And who knows, … Continue reading Good morning!
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 … Continue reading Sleep? Yes please!
