It's true - I realized the other day that The Baby has spent the night in her own bed for WEEKS AND WEEKS now and suddenly I missed her, all knees and elbows. Some childhood things end so gradually that you don't have time to mourn them.

You're so right--and the baby IS getting big!

I love the acorn fairies! Thanks for sharing it. My B is soooo into fairies right now, she'll be thrilled. I just have to think about the heads, for our neighborhood has no acorn bearing trees...

I wish we could pack up some of our acorns and send them your way--we have buckets and buckets of them!

I'm not sure what else you could use. Maybe pieces of bark? Or small leaves?

Oh, I can totally relate to the sleeping issues as well as the flexible approach to dealing with them. I have read several books on sleeping but Ethan defies all logic and all methods. He's not a good sensory modulator and needs so much help falling asleep AND staying asleep. I think if he were able to sleep in his bed by himself all night long I'd probably need therapy! It's become so engrained and I think I've adapted so much as to also have a sleeping disorder :-)

Yes, I know what you mean Hetha. Our L. will probably never sleep "normally"--but I imagine there are many adults who don't. At least as they get older they learn to be a bit more independent in their sleeping.
