Bedtime didn't go so great last night, but I am hopeful we will all sleep soundly tonight.

The sound machine I purchased yesterday was not a big hit and my girl asked me to turn it off, but I left it on and enjoyed the rainforest myself.

At midnight last night our girl was still wide awake and "thrashing" around in her room, but I know that consistency is key and we've got to stick with it. Even if it kills me.
I slept on the floor in Morgan Kate's room for two hours last night, but woke up with a new appreciation for my bed. And a crink in my neck. 

Exactly four minutes before my alarm went off this morning my baby girl was standing at my side of the bed poking me in the face, but I was thankful to awake to her sweet voice rather than the "bonking" of the alarm clock.
I've been rather cranky today, but did manage to smile a few times as I watched my girl slide down the slide at Chick-fil-A. The nuggets made me pretty happy as well. 

There have been times today where I have felt so totally overwhelmed and frustrated, but I know tomorrow is a brand new day and we all get a fresh new start. Right?!?

Yes girl! Tomorrow will be a brand new day! Sounds like your night was similar to ours. We woke up at 1:30 to C crying in the hallway. We defintely are needing to put her in a "big girl" bed. The climbing out of her crib is too much!

Just want to drop in to say- girl, I feel ya! We went through something similar with Juliana... Who now sleeps in our bed every night. Have you tried a small tv in her room with a familiar movie every night? This worked for Noah. We raised our white flag with J mainly because we were just plain tired and right now, it works for us. In a way I would love to have our bed back and in another, I know they grow up entirely too fast and far too soon that snuggly little wiggle worm in our bed (feet in our face and all) will have moved on. Hang in there and do what feels right for you guys. :-) hugs!
