So, the last few weeks we have spent sleep trainig Avery. She was sleeping so well for a while and then she started waking up during the night again. About every two hours. I love my baby and all, but wow. I was starting to get a little tired. I knew that it was time. I had to prepare myself because I had heard horror stories about moms who had to let their babys cry for 2 hours before they fell asleep. I was a little nervous because I have a hard time listening to her cry for 5 minutes. Well, Avery did such a good job. She only cried for like 20 mins the first night. And it has only gone uphill from there. We now do our routine every night ( dinner, bath, book, and bed) at 6:30 and lay her in her bed by 7 and she is out. She only wakes up once around 4 or 5 to eat and goes back to sleep until 7:30 0r 8. No more rocking her to sleep and quietly putting her in her bed careful not to blink in fear of waking her. No more binkie to sleep. Oh, its amazing!! Now she is napping better and is such a happier baby. We do have to keep her up between naps so that she will actually sleep during her naps. If it were up to her she would sleep for 10 mins every hour. So, this picture cracks me up. This is Avery trying so hard to stay awake inbetween naps. Its safe to say it did not work so well..
