Hey there rosy cheeks....

Courtesy of a little rash Layla tends to get from rubbing her face on her sheets.

So perfectly placed like somebody applied blush on her.

Sweet rosy cheeked baby. I wish she would sleep better. I want to blame it on the teething this weekend and the diaper rash, but her sleeping habits are always bad. Sometimes I'll get about 4 days once a month were it looks like things are getting better but they don't.

I'm used to it and I try not to get frustrated because they are only babies for such a short amount of time, but when it creates tension in my house and my body aches from rocking her so much, I feel disheartened and weary.

Layla is on her way to 9 months in 2 weeks. We've done it all. Fed her more, strict bedtime schedule, middle of the night feedings, read the books, let her cry it out. You name it. Maybe I'm missing something. Maybe I'm not. I don't know. I just know that right now I am very tired.

Go night night baby please?


  1. she is so adorable!
    love your blog, too :) following!


  2. I feel your pain with the long nights. My little guy was a great sleeper for the first two months, but since then-not so much. It's tough!

  4. I feel your pain. My daughter doesn't sleep through the night & we've tried everything also. Maybe they will outgrow it? #wishful hoping

  5. bummer sleep stuff! so hope she magically decides to conk out at night:-) My little man is doing pretty good with the whole sleep thing...but things can change overnight! fingers crossed! You're so right though, they are only this young once. Then she'll be a teenager who wants to sleep all the time:-) xoxo

  6. Such a sweet photo! And lovely blog xo

  7. Hi it's Turtle143 from the Nest! I came across your blog as I lurk on OOTD. Layla is such a beautiful baby girl. Liv's cheeks get rosy too from the sheets.
    I also am struggling a little with sleep issues. I've read about 3 books on sleep training, the last one being Ferber's method which I started last night. My heart broke with hers as she cried and I start to question whether this is the way to go about fixing something that is tolerable. I also think they are only this little for so long. I can't believe I have an 8 month old! Well goodluck to both of us!

  8. all the time i used to read smaller posts which also
    clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading at this
