...and nothing's gonna knock this girl down... Yes, these were the words I was repeating last night after the second and third time up with my 2 year old in the middle of the night. It's been rough trying to change little Bella's sleeping habits. She has always been a good sleeper; since 3 months old she was sleeping through the night. The problem is getting her to sleep. Let's just say we followed more of the attachment style parenting, letting her sleep with us and then transitioning her to her crib. When she got her big girl bed, it was easier for us because we could lay with her and then quietly ease out of her arms once she falls asleep. Since Avaree came along, we have been trying to change her habits, but it seems almost impossible.
Have you heard the new No Doubt song? They are my all time favorite band. When I heard they were back together and making a new album, I was THRILLED! When I hear their music my blood heats up, I get the chills, I sweat, and I just feeling like singing (more like screaming) and dancing. The first single has come out and I can't get it out of my head. Especially last night, when I was repeating, "Get get get, in (bed), and settle down!!!" to Isabella. But, after that stressful night, I am up and running, trying to get ahead with my laundry and tidying up the house. Just like Gwen says, "I'm a rough and tough, and nothing's gonna knock this girl down!" The motto for any mother!!!
Little Avaree sucking her thumb!! ahhh!
