A portrait of sleep in my family every week in 2018

This little stinker has taken to pretending to sleep in her baby bed at bedtime, sometimes for quite a while, before actually going to bed.

While at the store, the baby saw the display of beds and pointed and said “night night”. Both girls proceeded to walk over the the bed, climb up and lie down.

When she gets a marker in her hand, her body becomes her canvas, every single time.

I really think crop tops were meant to be worn by babies. Also, I swear I feed this kid.

We’re all sick here again, which is super fun. I swear we can’t go much longer than a month without bringing something home. This little one seems to be hit the hardest this time. We spent the entirety of what appeared to be a beautiful day inside, on the couch, watching movies. I’m really hoping things get better quickly, as I’ve sort of had it with sickness this year and it’s making me feel pretty crazy.

That’s a giant mosquito bite on her cheek. It matches the three on her right arm, two on her left, three on her right leg and four on her feet.

If she wakes up before the baby, her first request is to go wake up her sister.

This little girl thinks she’s a tiny grown up sometimes and uses pillows. She even sleeps with determination.

They want to go to sleep in the same bed (which is sometimes mine), but they end up waking each other up constantly over night.

They continue to end up sleeping in the same bed. I often find myself wanting to just let them stay sleeping together, but find worry it will end in one of them screaming, considering how much they both move around in their sleep. Once the baby nurses less over night (because she still thinks she needs to nurse a billion times every night) I plan to have them sleep together but I don’t think they’re quite ready yet. It sure is cute for the amount of time I let them.
