Well lots of things have changed over the last week.
Firstly the little one has been sleeping through the night. Why is this? Not sure. I think it's a combination of the tough love return to bed routine and the presence of the Dream Fairy. We now read the story I wrote for her every night before she goes to sleep and as you can see from the picture, the Dream Fairy hangs in her room waiting to catch her dreams (top left). Also the lovely Maggy over at RedTedArt did this amazing fairy illustration that I have put in her book.
She is waking up, occasionally crying, but the key is she settles herself back down to sleep without coming out of her room.
The other change is that she has not been up before 6am. In fact one day she was up at 6:30am. Of course I was awake shortly after 6 wondering if she was ok. Typical! She really seems to be paying attention to when the sun comes up on her Groclock. So much so that I have changed the time from 6am to 6:10am for the sun coming up and am considering moving it to 6:15 within the next couple of days.
So it has been a really good week and nice to settle back into a more healthy sleeping pattern.
Meanwhile, there is a new app for the iPad called Animatching and she loves it and is a whizz at it. Enjoy the video if you get a moment (ignore the elbow coming up, damn midges keep biting her in her head)
