Ahh, sleep. I had forgotten what it felt like to get more than 2 hrs of sleep at one time. It is heaven. The little girl is sleeping through the night finally. Yay! And she is taking 2-3 naps during the day which gives me time to blog, knit and read. Yeah, I should probably clean the house, too. I will get to that.
Not going to lie, letting the little girl cry and not going to her was the hardest thing to do but, omg, she is so much happier when she is awake now that she is getting the sleep she needs. We went cold turkey on everything with her-no more bassinet, no swaddle, in her own room/crib. Glad it all worked out. Just look at this happy little face.
She has a lovey that made it go a little easier for her. She snuggles with it, sucks on it, pushes it away when she gets mad then grabs it back when she's ready to sleep. It is very cute to watch. Yup, watch. Having a video monitor makes this sleeping apart a whole lot better. I do spend a lot of time while she is asleep watching her, though. :)
