It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Los Angeles yesterday! The temperature reached the mid-80s! So I broke out my spring/summer gear and spent some of the day outside with my little family.
Molly had kind of a rough day yesterday. Well, I think she’s going through the 18-month sleep regression. So that, coupled with the fact that we just moved into a new house means she’s not taking naps in her crib these days. Well, at least she hasn’t for the last two days. On Saturday she had to nap in her stroller because she protested sleeping in her crib and yesterday she ended up falling asleep in my arms on our couch because she wouldn’t nap in her crib. But I have to admit, I kind of loved the fact that she fell asleep in my arms. This has literally never happened! So I was enjoying every second of it. She’s also waking up at about 5 AM which is an hour earlier than normal.
So after she woke up from her mini nap on the couch with me yesterday, we headed outside to enjoy some of the beautiful day. However, it was getting so hot out (yes, I took off her tights) that I thought a cold treat would be nice for her. She’s never had ice cream or a popsicle so we thought we’d start out with something a little bit on the healthy side. We got her an all natural fruit popsicle. She’s going to have to wait a little bit longer before she gets an ice cream cone. But I’m sure that day will be soon. Anyway, she absolutely loved the popsicle! It was so adorable to see her taste it for the very first time, a bit unsure as to what it was or what she should do with it, but once she got her little lips on the popsicle she couldn’t get enough! And it just melted my heart that she kept holding out the popsicle to both me and Kevin to give us tastes of it. I love that my little girl wants to share with us!
So anyway, today’s blog post is 2 fold. Really I wanted to share these super cute photos with all of you guys. And I want to get some advice on the 18-month sleep regression! Anyone else experience this? It’s so much worse at nap time for us. She’ll go to bed at night a little easier, we are just getting a super early wake up time. Did you move nap time later to make your little one more tired? Did you leave them in their crib to cry? Did you get them out of the crib? Both days this weekend we gave in after about 20 to 30 minutes of crying and went and got her. But I’m wondering if we shouldn’t do that. I really don’t know what to do! Would love your advice!
And for those wondering, I’m wearing a size medium in my dress and they have it in 3 different prints. It’s so cute as non-maternity but totally works with my bump, and I think the length is great for moms chasing around their kiddos. And it’s only $55 which I love. And the reviews are really good so I’m not the only one who loves it! It would be a great dress for any vacays you might have coming up! Or just for this spring/summer. And almost all my accessories are Sole Society. The fringe heels I’m wearing are an absolute favorite of mine. I have them in both blush (what I’m wearing in these pics) and in taupe. You’ve seen me wearing the taupe ones on my blog before since I’ve had them for a little over a year now. Details on everything I’m wearing are below the picture below!
But don’t leave without giving me advice on what helped you with the 18-month old sleep regression in the comments below!!!
