I'm so proud.

Kolby slept from 8pm to 5:55am. What more is there to say? And at 5:55, he didn't eat, but got his passy, came to my bed (long story*) and went back to sleep until 7:30.

*WARNING! This will be too many dumb details that you probably don't care about but for some reason, I feel the need to explain, so if you continue reading, just remember, you were warned!

We have a 2 bedroom apartment, making it difficult to sleep train Kolby without disturbing anyone. Kolby and Sage share a room but for the past 5 nights, I have been putting Kolby down in our room in the pack-n-play and then we move him into the hallway for him to sleep the rest of the night so when he wakes up, he can't see us. Last night was no different, he slept soundly in the hallway but at 5:55 when he woke up (after sleeping all night, did i mention that;) Drew was about to get up, I debated about what to do but did our normal routine, rocked him with his passy and laid him back down. At 6:15 when Drew got up, he wasn't back asleep yet and when Drew walked out of our room and passed him without acknowledging him, that made Kolby very sad, so I got him, his passy and his cute puppy blankie (thanks Joyce!) and brought him to my bed where he laid next to me, sucking his passy, clutching his puppy, holding my hand and fell back asleep until 7:30!

Someday maybe I will write about other things than my kids sleep patterns! But, it is oh so important to me right now!


  1. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, and yeah!! Hooray for Kolby and good for you!

  2. my son is 7 months and still wakes up at 12 p.m. and again around 4 a.m.

    when my stepson is over, however, he is up every couple of hours. we've been putting him (the baby) in the pack 'n' play on those nights, so he won't wake his brother up, but he seems to be up all night when not in his crib. ugh, it's such a screwy routine!

    anyway, what is my point? good for you and your baby! i'm looking forward to a full night's sleep one of these days! also, my son doesn't take a pacifier at all. he never liked it. not sure if this contributes to his fussiness or not. however, he does LOVE his security blanket and that thing is a lifesaver when it comes to bedtime!


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
