At Last

Two significant things happened tonight that made me want to jump on here and post right away.

Tonight Christina went to sleep on her own for the very first time! Finally! Normally I have to nurse her to sleep. Lately though, that hasn't been working and I couldn't seem to figure out how to get her to sleep. Last night she was up until 2am! Tonight was following the same pattern. I knew she was tired, but she just wouldn't go to sleep.

I was getting a little frustrated and decided I was just going to leave her be, since I obviously couldn't get the job done. I put on some music for her and told her to go to sleep. Then I left the room, but left the door ever so slightly opened. She whined a little and then whined a lot and when I peaked in the room I saw she had flipped onto her tummy. So I walked back in, flipped her back over, told her to go to bed and left the room again. About two minutes later I was a little confused by the sound of silence. I took a peek and found her completely knocked out!

I can't even explain my excitement. Hopefully this is the beginning of something really great! Maybe I'll even be able to leave her with my Mom one night so that Nik and I can go out. If she doesn't need me to fall asleep, this opens all sorts of doors for me, lol.

On a completely different note, a big Congratulations goes out to my sister Mindy. She is officially (finally) engaged!! Yay Mindy and Chris!! The family has been waiting for this news and we are so happy to finally get it. I am so happy for them and am now looking forward to the big day!
