when does that time off start?

12 days until Pat has 2 weeks off! GAH I can't wait. Seriously. Liv has been waking up in the middle of the night, inconsolable unless I put her in bed with me and cuddle her to sleep. I know she's teething. She just broke a tooth on the bottom, but I went to bed at 7pm last night because I was so tired. I also made the decision to not give her any bottles in the middle of the night. I thought that was the problem, but I really think its the teething.

Toddlers are like puzzles apparently. I was talking to a friend yesterday and she suggested feeding Liv a snack before bed. It was actually a brilliant idea to me. I used to do it when she was a baby...why didn't I think of that now? Liv ate a late dinner last night so there was no snack, but the little bugger woke up at 11:30pm. Normally, I wouldn't have gone to sleep yet. It just gets tiring when I feel like I don't get a break.

Despite the terrible sleeping, we have been pretty busy around here.We put up our tree and decorated, went swimming, and went to 'let's play' . We have been keeping busy. I have found a new friend and its nice to have someone to hang out with during the day.

So...there we are. Waiting for daddy to start his time off and waiting for Liv to get back to a normal sleep routine. I have some pictures of Liv with the Christmas tree to share.

we have spent a lot of time reminding liv to look and not touch


  1. Love the pictures, Liv is a doll as always. Sorry she seems to be in a funk right now & tiring you out! I hope she snaps out of it soon and lets you sleep through the night again.
