Sweet Sleep

I know I've been slacking on the blogging front, but I have been completely exhausted and on the verge of a breakdown. With a sick baby and then being sick myself, we have gotten little to no sleep for almost a month now. We started Belle on another round of antibiotics last Wednesday and she finally started sleeping through the night again on Saturday and the poor little girl must have been just as exhausted as us because she slept from 8pm until Nick woke her up at 10:30am! Finally we are all starting to feel a little bit rested and relaxed again. Let's hope this trend continues! :)

Quick update on the new room at Daycare - Isabelle absolutely LOVES it!!! She doesn't cry when we leave in the mornings anymore. In fact, she usually tries to get out of our arms when we walk in the door so she can run to her room. Trevor, Autumn and Belle are such good buddies! I just LOVE seeing them together! Trevor has this huge grin and giggle when she walks in the room and Autumn ran over and gave her a hug this morning! It's just the sweetest thing. And she loves her new teachers! She runs to them in the mornings and works her way right into one of their laps - she's very good at that! Today when I picked her up, she cried because she didn't want to LEAVE! That's a first! But I am so much happier with our new teachers. They are much more attentive and fill us in on what's going on throughout the day, and when Belle has a diaper rash, they let us know or if she hasn't been eating much, or if she's been grumpy or clingy or just unlike herself, they NOTICE and let us know... It's very refreshing!

We started our training with Bark Busters on the 16th. It went pretty well. We have been working with both the dogs on the techniques that he taught us and we are doing okay. I have already started seeing some changes in Elwood's absurd behavior. We don't have another session until the 4th, so until then, we are just supposed to keep working with him for 15-20 minutes per day. I am not being so great at doing my part, but I am trying! I hope we can keep it going and get to a manageable state with this monster! :)

That's it for me for now. I am going to go try to get a third full night of sleep!!! Wish me luck! :)
