The first week back from vacation is always the hardest. I’m still California dreamin’ (especially after looking at these photos taken in my parents’ backyard). Well, kinda. To be honest, we’re not getting a lot of shut-eye in our household. Something about the four month sleep regression? That and some serious jet lag has equaled a lot less dreaming and a lot more sleep deprivation. I’m pretty sure some sleep training is in our future, but the thought of it is just none too appealing.
I attempted to let Layla put herself to sleep one night with my family. That lasted all of ten minutes, and the baby wasn’t the only one shedding tears. Sigh. I think having a specific plan will make it a bit better. Maybe a little. My mamas out there, what sleep training methods did you use? I just don’t know if I have cry it out in me.

And in non-baby related news, Aaron and I are headed to Charlottesville for the weekend for a little winery trip as a belated birthday celebration. I’m looking forward to some wine and hopefully a full night’s rest!
