It's been over a week since we got back from our trip to Costa Rica. It was a beautiful trip that we will always remember. It was a trip in which we did almost everything we wanted. There are always too many compromises and things we got to get done, but besides that, we got to see the people we missed, we got to go to the beach and most importantly, we got to have lots of quality time with the family. We miss everyone a lot, but we have to admit that it is also nice to get back home.
The jetlag has been insane, and all the sleep training we did for the last 5 months pretty much went to the garbage. Olivia now wakes up in the middle of the night EVERY night, and is impossible to get her to go to sleep on her own. I think it's a mix of lots of change, teething, the fact that she moves so much more and wants to stand up all the time... I don't know. It has just been truly difficult. On top of that, getting back on schedule is also a big factor. But, it's ok, like everything, this will also pass and I know it will get easier in not so long. We just have to keep with the routines, and as soon as she is more familiarized with the time change, is back to Ferberizing (because as hard as it is, it is effective and good for her). Olivia has never slept better than when we all got the Ferber method working. If she woke up in the middle of the night, she would go right back to sleep on her own, and really rest, which is what she needs again. What we all need.
But enough of that. Everything is slowly getting back to place. I am back at school and feeling good about it. Jonas is at home with Olivia having a lot of fun being a full time dad and life is good. We can't complaint.
