Happy Friday! You know the drill -- I'm linking up with April today to share a few things on my mind:
ONE: Vi is going through the dreaded four month sleep regression. Last night was really difficult and I lost track of how many times I woke up. H and I are exhausted and all of our googling hasn't left us with a ton of options. We are considering sleep training (aka the cry-it-out method) but the thought of having her cry and not being able to comfort her makes me want to cry. Has anyone else tried it? Or do you have any other suggestions?!? love, sleepless in Charleston.
|*even in my sleep deprived state it bugs me the ecard on the right uses To instead of Too... but I didn't have the energy to edit it in photoshop so we'll let it slide this time :)|
TWO: And if all that sleep stuff wasn't enough -- Vi has been busting out of her swaddle at night! (so scary for a mama who is constantly thinking about safe sleep). She's transitioned from a traditional swaddle to a Halo SleepSack Wearable Blanket (we have this one). I LOVE how easy it is to put on (and unzip for nighttime diaper changes). Halo is hosting a great giveaway over on their Facebook page -- you can enter to win a HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper + SleepSack Swaddle. HALO Innovations is dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. Learn more about safe sleep practices here.
THREE: Did you know Minted sells CAKE stands! These are so cute...is it too early to start planning Vi's birthday party?!
FOUR: Dove sent over a sample of their Summer body wash and soap. It's specially formulated to deal with skin that has battled with humidity + wind (hello, summers in the south!). And it smells fantastic. H is a big Dove fan so he was excited to try it too :)
FIVE: It seems like everyday someone new is running for president. If you're curious to see how the candidates line up with your beliefs, take this quiz! H and I were both aligned with Bernie Sanders.
Have a great weekend!
