Man o man, I've been delinquent. I started writing T&Q's 15 month blog post but stopped myself because I'm embarrassed by the fact that we're almost half way through their 16th month.
Here are my excuses for taking an almost 2 week hiatus from blogging:
- The biggest reason - sleep regression. Courtesy of a certain Sweet T. The sweet factor slightly diminishes at 2am. She's been up at least once for most nights over the last 4 weeks. In her defence, while at the cottage, we wouldn't let her cry in fear that she'd wake everyone else staying there. If she can get a 2am cuddle or breast milk, she'll pick up a new middle of the night habit mighty fast. The problem. I need my sleep. My world totally caves in when I don't get a regular 8 hours. Needless to say, everything has suffered as a result.
- One nap. The girls were fighting their two-nap schedule for a while. Putting them down was such a production. We went cold turkey to one nap about 3 weeks ago. I'm slowing pushing them later and later with the goal of a 12:30pm nap. This gives me far less time during the day to get important things, like blogging, done. The nap averages two hours, but can be as little as one hour or as much as three. I rarely get two babies to nap for three hours unfortunately.
- We were at the cottage where we do not have a wifi connection. In order for me to get online, I need to tether my phone. I tethered a lot during August and am now afraid of the bill that is to come.
Enough excuses. I miss blogging and will get back into it full swing. Life is busier than ever with two walkers. Teagan took off walking about a month ago. Stay tuned for some blogs and pictures from our month up north!
