Guess who slept through the night last night?! Yep, this little cutie pie. It's a miracle! And after getting 9+ straight, uninterrupted hours of sleep for the first time in over four months, I feel like a new woman today!!! (And Sam seems to be in a pretty good mood too!) So we started doing "sleep training" last week, and as hard as it was, it was also the best thing we could have done. We learned the hard way with Poppy that the older they are when you start, the harder it is to do, so I always knew we were going to start young with this little stinker. We started with just having him learn to put himself to sleep at night and the first few nights were rough (for everyone involved), but do-able. Then a few days later we moved on to having him put himself to sleep for his naps and now after a week, I can put him in his crib while he is awake and he falls asleep without a peep. How awesome is that? And he has been waking up once a night for nursing, but last night he just slept through it!!! I'm trying not to get too excited because who knows what will happen tonight, but at least I know we are on our way to full nights of sleep! Yay Sam!!!!
We've also been celebrating a few birthdays (my dad's and Courtney's) and Marc and I had our first night out sans kiddos! Exciting stuff!
We also met up with some friends for a "literary playdate" which involved a craft, storytime and then Corduroy made an appearance! Poppy was pretty scared of him, so I didn't get any pictures. While Poppy and Claire were playing, Sam and Oliver had time to hang out too. How cute are they together?
