Bedtime with Ella has become VERY challenging.  Before we moved into our house, Ella was in her crib and she was a wonderful sleeper.  She had always been a great sleeper, even as an infant.  
When we were getting ready to move, I debated a lot about if I should switch her out of her crib into a big girl bed.  I had a lot of people tell me that a clean switch to a new room and a new bed would be easy...... 
Well, it was not easy..not in the slightest.  Ella will wake up and come and sleep with us around one or two every morning.  She will also not fall asleep with out one of us.  We have tried putting her back in her room and instead of nap time telling her it's quiet time.  Nothing seems to work :( I am down to my very last nerve, I am super tired all of the time.  She makes it about 1,000x's more difficult because she insists on touching me or cuddling right up against me.  Don't get me wrong I love cuddles...but the pokes and whacks to the face are making it so I am getting very little sleep.  
We decided today to put her crib back together.  We probably should have done it awhile ago...The look on Ella's face when Devin was putting it together was priceless.  She was super excited. She seems happy to have her old bed back....we'll see how she does tonight...for her sake and mine, I hope this works for us.
