And did I mention I am NOT a morning person?


Sometimes she's really kissable. Just not in 45 minute intervals after 4 am.

WHAT is going on with my once, great sleeper? Tell me it's a phase and some day, I might remember what it feels like to sleep a night uninterrupted. Someday....

that face! i can see how you couldn't resist kissing it... and how it might get mischievous at 4am. can't wait to see the girls in their dresses and reeeaaaaallly hope they fit!

that swimsuit is fantastic! almost ordered it too, until i realized it wouldn't flatter my less-gifted upper half.

will i really see you in 10 days? hooray! i love being on the biesinger calendar:)

Oh lillie that makes me laugh. Not AT you, but WITH you. Almost TEN years ago I had my last full night of sleep. TEN YEARS!! No joke, not an exaggeration. Haven't had one good sleeper and now we live with a toddler in the middle of us EVERY night kicking and smacking in her sleep. Tried getting her out, but she finds her way back. Someday it will happen. Brian and I talk about that day often......it does help to be a morning person though. Thanks to my mom for that ;)

We are so much alike. I am NOT a morning person either and I'm so sorry that what I have to say isn't what you want to read. :) Grace hardly ever sleeps through the night and she's almost 5! Is her room light? Taggart's is completely black and it's helped him. Yes, someday we will all have sleep. :)haha

Lillie Kameron did that a lot before Macyn came, then after Macyn came both Kameron and Ayden were having a hard time sleeping through the night. This is what we found to work out the best. One, I made a little nest on my floor with blankets and a couple of pillows and I told them if they came into my room they didn't need to wake me up, they could just laid down on the nest and go to sleep. Then we did a chart they got a sticker for every night that they stayed in their bed till the sun came out. Once they did it for a whole week we took them to Toys R Us for a new toy. It only took a couple of weeks before the whole toy thing was forgotten and they stayed in their own bed. Good Luck......

Oh dear. Really Lillie? Because we moved Avery to a big girl bed about two or three weeks ago and she has been doing awesome. Though, now I'm a little worried. Sophia is the best sleeper of all I know!

I'm sure she'll get back on track. How long has it been? It's got to be a phase. Hopefully a short one, but I'm sure it will be.

I'm right there with you. I mean mentally, right there. Will the sleep ever come? Will we ever return to the best version of ourselves-- as in the patient, nice, kind people we were before we became so sleep deprived!? I hope so. Sincerely.

Madisen started doing that around 3 years old. I would make a bed on the floor next to my bed and tell her she could sleep there. She did that for a while and eventually went back to sleeping in her room. But then she started waking up at 5:00 a.m. every morning. She did it for a while. I'm so sorry. Blocking out the light helps.

I have to admit that I love reading your guys blog. Your pics are so fun - and I have no idea where you have the time to take all these fun pics with two little ones, and post it all!

I have to tell you I thought of you last month - true story: I was on the computer and and realized suddenly it was TOO quiet - so I call for Kami and look around for her - nowhere to be found. Finally after a few minutes of panic I find her smiling and happy as can be with a mouth full of marshmallows she had somehow found, and opened out of our cupboard. How did she know they were "candy" when I had never given her one?

I thought of Sophia's indulgence with marshmallows in her closet. Too bad I didn't have a camera handy.

Your girls are sooooo cute!!! Good luck with getting her to sleep better - I'm sure it's a phase.

I know EXACTLY what you're feeling. It's terrible to be up multiple times night after night after night. It's probably even worse when you've been SPOILED with good sleepers. :)
