Sleep, sleep, sleep.

I haven't written a post for the last few days...... and it feels like weeks.

Life has taken over these last few days, everything seems to be taking three times longer than it should and there seems to be even less hours in the day than before.

But on the upside, Charlie is sleeping better. Finally.

And all it took, is saying to him "Mummy's going back to bed to sleep" whenever he woke during the night. He then lays back down and goes straight back to sleep.

And now he knows this, he's started sleeping through the night. For the past few nights it's been getting better and better.

Last night he slept for 11 hours, woke briefly, then went back to sleep for another hour. Anyone who knows us, will realise what a big deal this is for us.

Charlie has NEVER slept well, so this is a major event for us. That elusive thing known as sleep may finally be back in our lives again.

So it seems that for the past 18 months he was only waking so many times during the night to check we weren't having fun without him!

I guess Del and I will have to give up playing with toys cars, Thomas trains and Wiggles puzzles from now on.

But only at night though.
