Two nights ago, we had a little mix up in our sleep routine. Hailey was up every two hours. She wasn’t screaming, but would consistently wake up, which led to a long night for us. The real question was why?
Did she sleep too much during the day?
Did she not eat enough before bed?
Did I eat too much dairy and it upset her tummy?
It may sound silly to question everything after only one night of less sleep, but that’s what I did. I concluded I’d try everything possible to get her back on schedule, so I decided to go dairy-less for the day.
I was a bit worried because I love my Greek yogurt, cheese sticks, feta, etc, but surprisingly, it wasn’t that hard!
I made some delicious oatmeal with rolled oats and vanilla almond milk. Then I stirred in a heaping spoonful of leftover pumpkin puree, some pumpkin pie spice and raisins. Mmmm!
Hubbs’ mom (Mema!) was in town visiting and fixed me a delicious lunch of deli buffalo chicken and tomato on wheat. Carrots on the side. I love buffalo chicken- anyway you slice it 😉
After a much needed TWO HOUR nap, I woke up like Hailey- ready to eat! I loaded up on veggies with a big ‘ol salad with Caesar dressing, an apple and and some delicious Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter.
The weather was gorgeous and the timing (feeding, sleeping schedule-wise) worked out perfectly enough that we decided to try and go out for dinner. I was a bit nervous, since sometimes Hailey gets fussy in the evenings, but I decided with 3 pairs of hands, we could handle it.
So off we went to Si Senor!
It was perfect. We sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air
… and I even enjoyed sharing a margarita with Hubbs!
I went without cheese dip, but didn’t mind… too much 😉 We all split chicken fajitas- YUM!
After a short walk, I cuddled up on the couch with these ^^^. Have you tried them? Oh so good! I had a handful or two while we watched The Sing Off on dvr.
Last night Hailey went back to her usual wonderful sleep pattern. Do I think the no dairy did it? Nah… I think we had more play time during the day and that helped, but maybe the no dairy didn’t hurt. I’ll keep an eye on it, but doubt I’ll stay dairy free. I love Chobani and cheese too much 🙂
Do you watch The Sing Off?
It’s one of my favorite shows, even though I find myself incredibly jealous of their talent. I couldn’t carry a note in a bucket, but I don’t let it stop me from belting out songs at the top of my lungs in the car 😉
