Would you look at that? She can sleep!!

Wow, I actually think I slept seven hours in a row last night, well it might have been six but I'm not complaining. It has been forever since I got that much sleep in a row.

Tues night she screamed for 40min before giving up and going to sleep. Then was up once at 11:30, I cuddled her for a couple minutes then put her back to bed and YES straight to sleep she went. Then she was up again at 4:30, but she didn't really cry just complained a bit then went back to sleep. She was up for good at 6:55 but because she had better night I was ok with that.

Last night she only cried for a min or two before going to sleep. Then was up awhile later but again only complained a min or two and put herself back to sleep. Then she was up at 11ish, Rod went to get her which she wasn't happy about, it's been all about mom lately. I gave her a bit of a cuddle, sang to her and put her back to bed. It looked like she was going to go to sleep but then she started coughing. Where did this cough come from? She had just recently stopped coughing from the last cold!! ARGH! I was upset, I can't let her cry if she's sick!! So after a few minutes of coughing followed by complaining we went and got her. Gave her some cough medicine and some warm water(but no formula, and she did drink some) and another cuddle, raised the head of her mattress slightly and put her back to bed, she went without a fuss and slept until 8!! Of course when I woke at 6:30ish and realized how long she had been sleeping I started wondering if she was ok!! I'm so used to her being up that when she isn't I get worried, so then of course I couldn't go back to sleep! I could have slept 8 hours! Imagine that!! I'm hesitant to say anything just because I don't want to jump the gun but it seems like she's starting to get the whole sleeping thing. Hopefully I won't be biting my tongue tonight!

Sleep, what a glorious thing!!
