Like a broken record

We are home from Moncton and of course you know this post is about the controversial 5 letter word SLEEP. I am now convinced my home has some type of no sleep voodo happening. For a week in Moncton Evangeline had 2 minimum hour long naps a day plus slept well at night, going down around 10 waking up at 2 and 4 to eat, getting up at 6:30 playing for 30 minutes then back to sleep til 9:30. Yes that is good for her and I felt immensly rested. We have been home 3 nights and have had no nap longer then 30 minutes, and restless sleppless nights. Last night she woke me up every single hour. Oy. The only differance I can see is my moms was very quiet as she lives outside the city and here is busy as we are in the city so more noises. Also Dave is here in the room and Oliver so they make extra noises then I alone made at my Moms. The child is hypersensitive to noise sometimes, then other times will sleep through a party in her carseat. Trying to establish a regular routine to avoid letting her be overtiered has not been working because she appears to be the ultimate sleep fighting champion. Yet despite it all she is always happy πŸ™‚ so she’s got that working in her favour.
We have not started any form of sleep training yet πŸ™‚ I keep going back and forth, I am still cosleeping and using the boob
Power to get her back to sleep every single time she wakes.

I have a ton of pictures from our getaway, it was a wonderful time. So much so we are looking into selling our house and relocating to Moncton. Well, in the impending future.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
