Let’s be completely honest, the weather has been crappy for the past few days and my state of mind matches it perfectly. I am more tired than ever (!) and being alone with a baby who has decided to get up before 4 am lately, doesn’t make it any better. Being a mother is bigger and better then life itself but oh how I miss those teenage years when I could sleep until 2 pm! The sleep quality and depth I had when I was younger was something I know I’ll never experience again. I always say that I don’t have any regrets or things I’d change in my life but now I’d probably tell my 16 year old self to keep on snoozing.
I have now tried every single method (exempt for letting her cry for long) to get Greta to sleep better but nothing seems to help and she still wakes up with 10-30 minute intervals :/. I know I’ve asked you before but please share all of your great advice, tips and experiences! She is probably going through another phase in her development as well because she also wants to be carried by me all through out the day. Well thank Goodness she’s so cute and my favorite person on earth because I wouldn’t put up with this with anyone else ;).
This picture below is from an amazing “autumn fairy” shoot last Saturday. It was freezing cold but the leaves were so colorful and incredibly beautiful and I felt so much at peace when I got to lay there in a sea of autumn leaves. I haven’t been able to go for my everyday walks for the past few days and I immediately feel the lack of fresh air and exercise in both my mind and body. I’ll try to get back on track tomorrow!
I’m sorry to start this week of by complaining. I’m sure everything will feel better in a few days :).
