A Light at the End of the Tunnel

Our current sleep issue revolves around the ever teething Katherine. We are awake all the time. We had finally planned to take the tough love approach this week and let her cry for longer periods of time in hopes that she will re-learn that whole self-soothing thing. Of course, last night, she developed a cold. Tough love- on hold.

We do though have a glimmer of hope to hold on to through the long hours of night. While Katherine is the tough one now, Caroline has had every sleep issue in the book. She has had prolonged problems going to sleep, staying asleep and waking up too early. It is really pretty recently that we haven't had one of the above going on in some manner.

And then... last night, I heard her door bang open followed be her loud feet on the hallway floor. I began to sit up, prepared. Instead, I heard her turn into the bathroom. I stayed up figuring she would use the bathroom and be in our room momentarily, awaiting an escort to her room. Instead, I heard her feet pound toward her bedroom and her bedroom door close. And then I heard nothing. Nothing at all.

My big, big, girl...
