Day 227-230: The real sleep update!

I was so pumped to hop on here tonight and tell you guys that the passes WORKED!

As you can see in the photo, she’s OUT with one pass left hanging! πŸ₯³

The trick all week seemed to be coming back in to turn her light on. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ After that, she’d go right to sleep…until tonight. πŸ™„

Tonight was back to screaming and yelling for me to come in her room; however, this one was different. I wasn’t worried that she was scared or really needed me – it was full on fake whining/yelling to get her way. πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ The good news is that it was much more short lived than it was last week – and I’ll still call 4/5 nights a win! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

This is what we call BEST πŸ‘πŸΌ LIFE πŸ‘πŸΌ

It was a big week for KB during her waking hours, too!

If you’ve followed our blog for a while, you know Kensie has been in swim (which started as survival classes) since she was 8 months old. She always plays in our backyard in her princess dresses and rainboots, so Chris wanted to make sure if she fell in the pool in that outfit, she’d be okay.

After 3 days with Mrs. Heidi, we are feeling so confident that K is totally prepared if an accident were to happen. I was so impressed how long she was able to float in a heavy dress and boots full of water! πŸ’ͺ🏼

K even finished the week by begging to keep swimming and didn’t want her turn to be over. πŸ˜†

We are so thankful we found Swimsprouts and for the skills and passion Mrs. Heidi has for all of the babies she teaches life saving skills to every day!!

Elle starts her survival lessons in just a few weeks.

Taking notes πŸ˜†

Over the holidays K really hadn’t been to the gym much, so lately she’s been BEGGING to go. This week she’s been especially sweet to everyone, complete with running hugs to greet people. πŸ₯°

She also hopped in on a workout with me this week and it made me realize how much she’s grown!! I remember bringing this babe with me to the gym for the first time at just 5 weeks old…now 3+ years later I have a speedy little running buddy. ❀️

Of course Elle was there too, being her happy angelic self.

Gah this little babe is just the best. Random and off topic; but I planned to keep Leighton home for about a year. I thought it would be so easy to put her in daycare after that since I’ve been through it already. But, nope.

These girls are the freaking BEST together. ❀️❀️

HOW could I not want to spend my days with this little bundle of pure joy?! I know I’ve still got time and no hard deadline, but until she gets a solid vocabulary she’s pretty irresistible. πŸ˜†

Last but not least: THANK YOU to everyone who commented with tips/tricks/advice because several friends have benefitted from all of your potty training and sleep tactics!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

This must be what they meant when they say it takes a village!! #momsquad
