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!
The Bean has switched over to one nap/day now too. We find 4.5-5 hours after he wakes up in the morning is when he's ready to go down for a nap and usually get about 3 hours out of him. Too early and he won't nap long but also won't go down again later in the day. Good luck figuring out what works best for the girls!ReplyDelete
Oh, sleep regression. It's happening here too with Ian who is three and has always been an excellent sleeper. It's been about 3 weeks now and we have a pretty bad case of the crankies from lack of sleep. We also need our sleep and are used to getting it. :( Hope it improves for at your house and mine asap!ReplyDelete
Things seem to be getting better. We have had 4 good nights now. Hopefully it will continue and I hope things have improved in your house too :)Delete
All is forgiven :)ReplyDelete
