okay i dont have any real advice but all i do know is that i still have sleeping issues with my 18month old boy and it is better but the first year of his life and mine was HELL. he slept never and plus taking care of a 18 month girl at the time was HELL. but the plus is i survived but broken sleep is the worst. wish you luck :)


Awww, she's so peaceful looking! Great progress for you two this week. Does she have a blackout blind in her room? Then she won't know when the sun comes up and might sleep through. I wouldn't know this for sure though, as we never tried it with our youngest and he was up with the sun (5-5:30) every day of his life until last year when he started "sleeping in" until 6:30ish. Want to know the bad news? He's 10!


"The very next morning I dragged Dave to the mattress store, where I immediately picked out the same mattress we have in Genoa's room, the mattress I love and want to make babies with (or at least on)."

Is there something that you want to tell me because the baby making department was closed down by the sanity police after Genoa was born.


I second the blackout blinds suggestion. We got heavy drapes for our room and it has made a huge difference in how long Camilla is willing to sleep in the morning. We know it's not just a coincidence either, because when we got to Grandma's house where the blinds don't keep the light out of the room, Milla is up with the sun! So try the blackout blinds; you might be surprised how well they work.


If you don't want to buy blackout blinds, we are partial to the "tinfoil the windows" solution. Works like a charm...


Does she know her numbers through 7 or 8? When our first was getting up for the day between 5 and 6 in the morning, we started telling her that she had to stay in her room until she saw two sevens on her clock. It took a little while, but she and her sister are both trained now that they have to stay in their room until 7:07, 7:17, 7:27, etc.

And every once in while they freak out because they slept to two eights :)

One look at the photo of that beautiful child, and honestly, I forgot the point of your post. It's hard to be frustrated with them when they are so darn sweet and innocent looking.


What a gorgeous picture!
