Weekend Links 10/30/15 . . . And the two year sleep regression

So apparently I only get around to posting other people's blog posts these days. Anyone else notice this? I have several posts floating in my head and draft folder, just no will power to sit down and flesh it all out. I am pretty sure we have hit the two year sleep regression (two months early! yay!) and thus the entire house is awake, every day, at the unbearable hour of 3am, or sometimes earlier. My adorable youngest child who has been sleeping peacefully night after night is now waking and loosing her sweet mind. Lots of crying screaming and throwing everything out of her crib and demanding we go into the living room to play and watch a show. Um no. Shows do not start at 3am, dear one. All that to say, there have been many tears shed and many cups of coffee poured. At what age is sleep regression like, no longer a thing?

Maybe don't answer that.

On a positive note, some insightful articles to kick off your Halloween weekend . . .

Throwback to Halloween 2014. . . cutest little ladybugs you ever did see!

Hope your weekend is filled with lots of family focused fun and lots of sleep!


  1. Well there's no way you can look at that little ladybug from last year and be mad at her for her 3 am antics, right!? :) But for real, hope she kicks that habit soon... that is rough!

  2. Not cool, Camille! In addition to the nap protesting, Avery has been waking up earlier recently, too - but nowhere near 3am, so I shouldn't complain!!

  3. AHHHHH 3 a.m.?!?! Holy cow. No one tell Millie about this two-year-old sleep regression thing.
