Out to get us...

So, I really have been trying to cut down on the sleep (or lack their of) posts lately but last night just has to be documented...

We have been working hard to break Katherine's sleep habits lately. She has been teething forever which has gotten us into the pattern of frequent night visits. Never knowing if she was in pain or just saying hi, I had been going in to her room way too often.

Two weeks ago, with her teeth in, we decided to go cold turkey. We would not go into her room unless it seemed desperate. We have employed this technique often with Caroline and it was usually very painful but very short lived. One to two nights of lots of crying but then success. Somehow, Katherine has had a much harder time. Last night we were on night twelve of still pretty frequent, loud and sometimes long crying.

Last night, Katherine went right down at 7:30. We then heard one little peep from Katherine around 9:30 and she slept straight through until 6:45. A major victory!

Apparently, no one told our smoke detector what a big night this was for us. The possibility of REM sleep was there. I might actually have had a dream. But like I said, no one mentioned this to the smoke detector. At 2:00am, our smoke detector ran out of batteries. Beep, beep, beep, beep.

Maybe tonight's our night...

Hi Stacey,
I liked the name of this blog, so I decided to check it out, and lo and behold! We did wpss together! Small e-world!
Sorry about that fire detector thing...they can go off at the most inappropriate times! Good luck tonight!

I seem to have misplaced your email address in the furor of the past month, so I will leave my message here.
IT looks like we are finally going home this week...we have a ticket for Wed and if we are able to get Maggie's visa on Tuesday, we will leave Wed afternoon for HOME.
Send me your email when you get a chance...mine is
