Fabulous Friday

No, we didn't do anything amazing today, but all Fridays are fabulous because they mean the weekend is nearly here!

What is not fantastic tonight is trying to get L to go to sleep. Ever since she's started to get smarter and learn new things she's decided that even though she is very, very tired she just will not go to sleep anywhere. We've done everything we can think of - we let her stay up later in the hope she'll wear herself out. Doesn't work. We've put her to sleep earlier and then she'll wake up in the middle of the night and not go back to sleep for another 3 hours. She's not hungry, her nappy isn't wet. She's not too hot or too cold. She's not sick or in pain. The longer we try to get her to go to sleep the unhappier she gets and it's heart breaking to see/hear her cry. I usually cry because I want to go to sleep but can't!
We've put her into our beds and tried to snuggle her to sleep but all she wants to do is roll around and sit up and try to launch herself off the bed.

Tonight we're trying to get her back to sleeping in her cot. So far, it's just not looking like it's going to happen anytime soon.

Update: it is now 10:45 and L is still awake *yawn*
