something we are not getting much of around here lately...
elle got this sleep mask in her stocking. it is hilarious. but she only wears it to be funny.
i thought it would help her to fall asleep faster but i think the darkness creeps her out.
elle has been sleeping in our bed since late august, early september. and while at first it didn't really bother me (so tired during my first trimester. fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.) it has become more and more difficult over the last month or so.
i love her sweet little body in bed with us but my big pregnant body needs more room and since we only have a queen its tight. and my constant adjusting and getting up and down out of bed to go to the restroom throughout the night has got to be disrupting to her.
there are many mornings that she wakes up after 12 hours of sleep so grumpy and i know its because she hasn't had a great nights sleep. and i'm to blame for that. my constant wallowing. i annoy myself. but right now i can't help it. i'm uncomfortable.
my solution is a twin bed in her room, rather than the toddler bed. at least i will have a place to sleep if elle isn't excited about it. i really hope she thinks its the coolest thing ever and wants to sleep in it every night. but i'm doubtful. she loves sleeping with us. and we love her warm body next to ours but right now its just not working. and i'm not sure how its going to all pan out when baby brother gets here either.
our sweet sleeping beauty.
and the reason its so hard to kick her out of the bed.
we'll figure something out. we always do.
