Life is filled with questions. Some of them are deep, some of them are dumb. I ask myself lots of questions on a daily basis. Sometimes I ask them out loud and appear crazy because I’m the only one in the room and sometimes I ask them and Nick looks at me like I’m crazy for asking.
Yesterday’s questions included, why are my boys so obsessed with sitting in Lily’s chair?
And, why is my baby suddenly not sleeping?
On Saturday Lily was awake from 3pm until shortly after 11pm. Yep. 8 hours straight for a 6 week old. Nick and I agreed that was an extremely frustrating evening! Lily was beyond overtired and not at all happy about it. We tried every trick we knew to get her to sleep and stay asleep. Yesterday she was at it again, but at the 4 hour mark I started asking internet friends for their best tips… one suggested the vacuum! Of course! Lily was always mellow when one of us was vacuuming, but I’d never run it long enough to put her to sleep.
Yep. I parked the vacuum next to her yesterday afternoon and let it run for 30 minutes. Know what? It kept her calm and put her to sleep! Woohoo! I’ll be investing in a sound machine today. (I tried a radio set to static in her room last night and wanted to pull my hair out at the annoying sound.)
And finally, how on earth does she make her eyes so big?!
So what are your burning questions?
Let’s do another Q&A! We haven’t done one since June, so I figure it’s about time. Leave your question(s) in the comments section of this post and I’ll answer ’em later this week. Off limits are: middle names and exact city we live in (I just give the general “Kansas City” answer).
After you’ve left your question, pop on over to my friend Sarah’s blog and enter to win a treat from my Etsy shop! The giveaway ends later this week and so far the number of entries is extremely low, so your chance of winning is good!
