Distracted

I've had quite a few people contact me lately to ask if everything is ok. They were worried because I haven't posted here in a while.

I'm so sorry I've kept you hanging...

Everything is fine. Great, actually. I guess I've just been caught up in life. Distracted.

I've been keeping myself busy with the holidays, visiting family, preschool, therapy, doctor appointments, finding new and fun things to do with the kids, dealing with runny noses and activities for me to keep my sanity :) I've had quite a few ideas for posts, I just haven't been good about taking the time to organize my thoughts and getting them out on paper ...er, in writing.

I would have to say that the best development since my last post is that Bean is finally (FINALLY!) sleeping on his own, in his own bed. It took a lot of preparations, appointments and planning but he did achieve this milestone and now, he really values having his own space. Here he is as seen through the monitor sleeping soundly, beautifully, peacefully:


We don't dare sneak in his room while he is sleeping for fear that we will wake him.


When he is feeling well, he is sleeping through the night. Yes, you read that right. He falls asleep on his own, in his crib and then doesn't wake until morning. When he has a cold (which seems like all the time right now), he wakes up once or twice (or sometimes more) but is easily soothed by The Husband. I can't go in because the floodgates open and he'll never calm down.

For all the families that are struggling with seriously disordered sleep, I have a post (that I have actually already started! Go me! Planning ahead!) coming soon that will detail our story and how we got to where we are.

I have a lot of other great posts planned in my head, too and I will work very, very hard to avoid getting so distracted again. I have a lot of writing to do (and photos to upload) but in the meantime, I'll leave you with some snapshots of our Christmas celebrations. Hey, better late than never, right?!?!

See you soon!
