Let me first start out by saying, of course I love my girls. Its obvious given that they are the stars of my blog/instagram/facebook. However, I think I am ready to let someone else take them at night.

First, there is Abby, who should be the one sleeping through the night. We were so pumped when we made the transition from the crib to the big girl bed. It was so easy! She had no problems going to sleep and sleeping all through the night. Until she did. Now, she comes in our room almost every night, and putting her back in bed isn't easy, what with the wailing and squiggling and nashing of teeth she does. Seriously.

Then, there is miss Maddi, who is expected to get up at night. She is, after all, not even 4 months. But, she was sleeping through the night, and when she would wake up she would eat and fall immediately back to sleep. Now when she wakes up, and I put her back in her back in her bassinet, she sleeps for maybe 20 min, enough time for me to just fall back to sleep and then wakes up again wanting to be cuddled. And we usually go back and forth like that until morning. 

After all this, they wake up like they just had the best nights sleep of their life, while Sam and I have huge bags under our eyes and can't say a sentence without yawning. 

So, if anyone wants a sleep over with two cuties, feel free. I just want one night of uninterrupted 8 hours of sleep.Just one night.


  1. well they are quite adorable.... i know what you mean, landon has regressed a bit sometimes too. i bet abby is still just getting used to having a little sister. but i remember thinking, when will i ever get a full nights sleep again? it is just the worst and you just cant function. but it got better! and it did with abby and it will with madi! you should ask santa grandparents to stay over a night or two so you can get some sleep with your hubbyspend

  2. Ugh, I can't imagine. I would be exhausted. I've been complaining because Ammon keeps waking us up in the middle of the night because he needs help going to the bathroom. And every night I think, "Why can't you just sleep through the night and have to pee when you wake up like a normal person?!" But he goes right back to sleep and honestly it's a good thing that he's doing I guess what I'm saying is I kind of know how you feel but not really and I wish there was something I could do to help!

    I know, come up to Washington to visit and we'll watch the girls and you and Sam can have a get-away. Good thing they're so cute or you might have to give them away :)
