Our sleeping habits have changed since moving in to the new house. Jack used to sleep from about 8 to 8 and now he is up between 6:30-7:30. Yuck. I think this change is due to the fact that we don't have blinds yet on any of our windows. That coupled with the fact that the sun rises at like 3 in the morning in Tucson have made it rather hard to get good sleep. On the other hand, it is soooooo nice to have all of this light in our house. Our apartment was totally like a cave!

Violet has taken to sleeping from roughly 8 to 6 and last night she went from 9:30 to 8 this morning! I am soooo stoked on that! The best part is that she is doing it on her own rather than me having to "sleep train" her. I kept saying that I would train her once we moved but now that we're here she has taken care of it for me. Hallelujah!

Michael and I are struggling with sleep like Jack is. The sun is just so dang bright! Plus we actually hadn't slept in the same bed since a week after the baby was born until we moved into this house. Michael took to the twin mattress in the living room back at the apartment so he didn't have to be bothered by Baby Girl in the night. Why is it so hard to sleep next to each other now?! I don't remember it being this hard to adjust when we were newly weds. Hmm?

So that is the situation. We are all adjusting to our new house really well. As a matter of fact no one is adjusting better than cute little Jack. The first thing he said this morning when I got him out of bed was, "NEW HOUSE!!!" I think he really likes it here and that is awesome. :)

I'm glad you're getting a little more sleep as far as Violet goes. The sun rising so early really is a pain when it wakes up the kids. I hope you get blinds soon!

You can get some sleep masks for you and Mikey- they're inexpensive and wonderful. then maybe throw up a curtain rod and drape some sheets and blankets over it in Jack's room or just tack/nail some up. That should help with the sleep situation for now! Whenever you do get blinds/window coverings you might think about getting those sun shade things for the outside of the windows. They help block out some more of the sun which helps with your AC costs. The joys of home ownership in AZ!

Kat! It's been so long. I can't believe you are all moved in and I couldn't even help with that. What a bum friend I am. Well I might have to do some babysitting for you to make up for it :) Seriously you should use me. I really love kids. Especially yours. So as soon as violet can spare a couple of hours of you away you know who to call.

Your house is GORGEOUS! I might need a tour (and I might need to bring you some housewarming bread when I get back to Tucson). I am so jealous of that kitchen. WOW.

That royally sucks that you aren't quite getting your beauty sleep because I don't do well without sleep and I can only imaagine that adding smelly diapers and crying to the mix would make me a true terror. So you're a saint. Especially with the residency so in essense you are being a single parent (that sounds harsh but let's be honest).

Anyways I hope you're doing well. I'll be home in three weeks and so let me know if you need me for anything!

blinds make all the difference in kids room. i moved story into the bedroom that had black out curtains and she sleeps in so much later.
It took me and jerome a while to get used to sleeping next to each other too. he slept on the couch my last trimester and until story was about a month old when i could handle being moved around post c-section. it takes time. so exciting about jack and his new love for your home!
