The first night...

So night one wasnt the worst thing in the world, but it was not good either. They went down well at 8pm. Leah had a little fussy moment but I thought she would easily go down again if i rocked her, so I did. Honestly, if I had gone to bed earlier I would be much better right now.

Hannah got up at 3:45. I changed her immediately, patted her, gave her the passy and lovey, and stepped out. She screamed. I went in after 5 minutes. She screamed more. 10 minutes. More screaming. 15 minutes. Still no rest. She did this for an hour and 20 minutes. Leah woke up at 4:30 and I did the same with her, but she did not cry as long. In fact, I think she played in her crib with her passy for a good while before falling asleep. By 5:30 all was quiet again. Hannah woke back up at 7 and I went and got her. Leah woke up at 7:15 and Matt gave her to me. So we ended up having some morning snuggle time because we all fell back to sleep until 8:45. I hope I did not negate everything from last night.

I got text messages periodically from my lovely sister telling me she was about to kill me, or go get a baby. Apparently, Hannah sounds like she is in Laura's bedroom.

We are going to do the same technique for naptime. I hope that they will both start sleeping well. Maybe tonight will be better. I definitely have a strong willed child! Listening to your child scream out for you is not the easiest thing to do.

Hey girl. Hang in there. We have gone through the same thing with both of ours but in the end it pays off. I know how tough it is though. Call me if you need some support or if you just want to know how we manage through the rough times. 706-302-6542.

I know this is so hard- I wanted to give up so bad! But- it is totally worth it for their sakes! We tried the ferber thing for a while, but it seemed to teach Kate that if she cried long enough, I would come... so my pediatrician told me to put a few pacifiers, a few stuffed animals/loveys in there, and put in ear plugs and go to bed. She told me to put her down and not go back til the morning. I thought she was crazy, but it only took a few nights and she got used to it, and she has not needed me to come in her room since! I did have to find a week where Brandon and I could handle not sleeping so great, and we just agreed to make each other stay in bed no matter how loud she got! Once again, you will LOVE the result of putting them down and having the entire night to yourselves!
