Sleep...

it's a wonderful thing! Which is the 2P's challenge for today! What one wonderful thing happened to you today?

I got to sleep through the night! Owen is hit or miss with sleeping lately. But this week he's slept all night, twice! We have a well established bedtime routine and he's on a pretty solid schedule as far as eating and napping but he still wakes at night regularly. I've given up trying to figure out exactly what it is because I don't think there is one cause. He's growing and developing and that can affect sleep. We just keep sticking to the routine and schedule as best we can. The hard part is when he wakes in the middle of the night he won't usually be comforted by Morgan. So we both end up getting up. And he can be very difficult to put back down because he wakes when I put him back and then starts the crying and screaming all over again. I'm hoping these nights of good sleep are a sign of some progress!

Below are some of things I've been working on this week. The first is my DOM card from last week. The theme was traits we aspire to or our strengths. I chose patience because everyday it seems I need a little bit more!

These are two pages from my All About Me Album.

Fingers crossed for you and Owen's sleep schedule :) It's a wonderful thing to wake up and realize it's morning and not the middle of the night! I really like your AAM journaling!

Its good to hear that Owen might be making progress in the sleep department. That will be terrific for you and Morgan. Love your DOM card. The colors are wonderful and love the scalloped edge. Your AAM album is just wonderful.

I hope Owen continues to sleep well. It's so hard when they go through changes.
Your DOM is beautiful and the AAM pages are so original! I haven't tackled my AAM in so so long!
