I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I’m pretty sure we’re settling into a routine and it is SO NICE.
After months and months of terrible sleep and a baby who wouldn’t drink out of a bottle, we now have a 7 month old who goes to bed at 6:15pm, sleeps through the night without a peep, and is capable of taking a bottle if necessary. Not only that, but we have an almost 2 and a 1/2 year old who naps like a champ during the day (close to 3 hours most days) and sleeps like an angel at night (from 8:30pm – 6:30am).
To top it all off, we have an amazing babysitter who makes me feel 100% comfortable with leaving the girls at home. We had a weekend away last weekend (thanks to Travis’ parents for watching the girls!!!) and we had a fantastic night out last night.
I think it’s safe to say that freedom is mine/ours (well, as much “freedom” as you get as a parent!). One thing is for sure though…there will be many more date nights in our future…finally!
AND it’s Friday!?!
This is one happy Momma!
I’m also here to say that if you’re going through a rough patch with your kiddos (and this is a note to myself as well because it always seems so intense at the time), things WILL get better! They always do.
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
