We had a rough night last night. Lily would not go to sleep to save her life. In her defense, her schedule was all kind of thrown off.
We went out to dinner very late, around 8. She fell asleep in the car and slept through dinner and most of the way home. By the time we got home it was a few minutes after 10. She usually takes her last bottle around 9:30 and goes down for the night. We woke her up, changed her and gave her the bubba. She sucked it down and was still awake.
So we did what we do every night when she is ready to play and we say it’s time for bed. We break out the VTech Sooth and Surprise Nature Light. Literally this toy is a lifesaver in our house. We got it for Christmas and it works wonders at knocking Lily right out. It plays soft music, lights up and projects a spinning bear and stars on the ceiling. Give it about 10 minutes and it will work its wonders.
Well, the worst thing ever happened last night. It ran out of batteries! I thought Lily was going to cry when it slowly died in our hands. We quickly saved the day by grabbing the Fisher Price Glo Seahorse, but it just wasn’t the same. Luckily we were able to change the batteries and get to sleep, but not before an hour ordeal. Needless to say we were all pretty exhausted this morning!
Thank goodness we have the TV ready for tonight — early bedtime for everyone! If you have a baby, or more importantly, if you are looking for a great gift to give someone with a baby this is it! (It also works at putting grumpy husbands right to sleep too!)
