Or long night…..not quite sure how to categorize this one. Let’s just say, we didn’t get much sleep last night!!
We decided to make Blake’s bed into a toddler bed yesterday. Probably a very silly move on our behalf on a Sunday night. We should have done this on Friday. Oops! This isn’t the 1st time that we have tried this. When we moved Blake over to the big-boy room and made the nursery into Olivia’s room before she was born we made Blake’s crib into a toddler bed. He did OK the first few nights, but then decided that he wanted to sleep in Olivia’s crib. Probably a combination of it being his old room, and a crib. He was just much more comfortable there. We decided to convert his bed back into a crib…a new room AND a new bed was maybe too much all at once. Well, now he is used to his room, and a big boy…so we thought that this was a good time to go back to the toddler bed. This is how last night went:
7:40 Blake in bed and sleeping right away (Ryan and I though…awesome, this is too easy!)
8:30 Olivia in bed
10:00 Ryan and Annie in bed
11:30 Olivia up to eat
12:00 Blake whining in bed (rub his back and back to sleep)
12:30 Blake whining in bed (rub his back and back to sleep)
1:00 Blake whining in bed (rub his back and back to sleep)
2:00 Blake whining in bed (rub his back and back to sleep) (at this point I was JUST about ready to bring my pillow in his room and sleep on the floor)
2:30 Olivia up to eat
4:00 Blake, standing by my bed…”is Mouse on?”….”No Blake, it is too early for Micky Mouse”…waaaaaaa, waaaaaaaaaaa
4:20 Olivia up to eat
4:40 Ryan's alarm off
5:30 Blake FINALLY sleeping again
6:30 Annie's alarm off…snooze
6:45 Olivia up to eat
7:00 Get in shower….LATE
7:30 Blake up and out of bed by himself
8:30 out the door to daycare/work 30 minutes LATE
SOOOO….as you can see not much sleep. We are NOT going back to a crib for Blake, so hopefully this transition doesn’t last long. Olivia used to wake up just once at about 4:00 before her surgery. Now she is up every couple of hours. Since we are really trying to get her to put in weight, I can’t complain right now….but I am hoping that this is just a phase as well. This mama needs some sleep!!
It’s a good thing that they are so cute :)
Liv playing under her play gym...she gets the BIGGEST kick out of it!
Blake sporting his new winter coat from nana and papa...this was supposed to be for NEXT year...but at this rate it may not fit!!
