Can I tell you a secret? Cedella has been sleeping really well lately. I almost feel like writing it down will jinx it. But I am so damn happy that she is finally, after nearly 20 months of life sleeping through the night. It’s heavenly. Well, except for the whole waking up between 6 and 7 am thing. We’re working on that…
We used The Sleep Lady’s Good Night, Sleep Tight book and it has been revolutionary in a very short period of time. Like many other methods she really encourages a sleep routine. We got upstairs (some nights we take a bath), clean up toys, change into night-time dipes and jammies and then pick out books to read. We read four or five books, then a little nursing, our special ‘Everybody Loves Everybody’ song and then into the crib.
The only problem, I’ve been the primary one handling this routine cause of Michael’s crazy work schedule. But when he can Daddy takes over the duties and tonight I caught a couple of shots of the two of them. Then I used some of Pioneer Woman’s Photoshop Actions, cause they weren’t that great out of the camera. I love that each action gave the same moment a different feeling. Which is your favorite?
Seventies, Dim the Lights and Burn the Edges.
I think this is my fav. Cheerful and sweet. Vintagey and grainy. Like the ‘Nashville’ filter on Instagram.
Lovely & Ethereal and Colorize.
So dreamy and I love Cedella looking off to the side. Like she’s contemplating the story.
Pioneer Woman B&W.
So simple and classic. Love Michael’s expression. And Cedella wringing her hands.
