Oh, this kid. His ridiculously sweet face makes up for the continuing series of sleepless nights and the nuclear meltdowns at the mere suggestion of getting some shut eye. Good thing. :-)
In related news, we have started sleep training. He had been doing so great on his own – getting up just once a night! – until he got sick. Since then, he just can’t seem to find his rhythm again. After nearly 5 months of inadequate sleep, I’ve decided it’s time to focus on getting this kid and I some rest. So far, so good. It hasn’t been nearly as painful as I thought it might be and we have successfully managed to move bedtime up to 7:30pm. Still getting up multiple times throughout the night, but we are seeing gradual improvement! After his nights are more stable, we’ll take on naps.
I’ll surely write a whole post on this topic once we are on the other side… hopefully that will be soon? A girl can dream. Well. A girl can dream of dreaming. ;-)
