I Can’t Believe It Worked

Our baby sleeps through the night now.  Holy cow, it’s so awesome!  Jude has now slept through the night the last 3 nights in a row, going to bed at 7pm and not getting up until 6:15 ish with hardly a peep in between and certainly no mommies having to go in and put him back to bed or even make him cry it out at all.  He just sleeps.  If you had asked me last week if this was even possible I would have told you no, and now here we are.  So dearest readers with little ones keeping you up at night, there is hope!    You will one day sleep! Sleep training works and I’m so glad we did it.  Oh and we also this week weaned Jude off of pacifiers, another thing I’m really happy about.  I so did not want to be having this fight when he was older and a friend of mine told me this weekend that his girlfriend’s kid is 3 years old and still needs a pacifier, and I just can’t imagine at that age how hard getting rid of the pacifier is going to be.  So, some pretty big wins for us this week in the parenting world.  So happy right now.  With 3 good nights of sleep under our belts and a smiling baby who no longer wakes up crying and screaming but instead wakes up cooing and chatting, life feels so very good.  Life is good.
