Knock on Wood

I am afraid to even write this but I am so happy that Paisley has been sleeping through the night for 3 nights in a row!!!!! I know that sounds like nothing to most of you out there, but for those of you who have a kid that will NOT sleep no matter what you have tried, you know this is nothing short of a miracle :) I am hoping it lasts for good, but am totally knocking on wood now so that I don't jinx it. I must also add that Natalie gave me the BEST gift, when she was here, of a sound machine.It has made her naps soo much better because the kids aren't waking her up. Now they don't have to be totally quiet during nap time, which has made them much happier.

She just hasn't wanted to miss any of the fun around there! But that's great news, and what a nifty gadget! Love you, Mom

Ben didn't sleep through the night until he was 18 months old. I know all too well about that! ;P

Cool about the sound machine!

oh, i'm SO sorry, my kids have slept thru the night since they were a few months old, except Regan, but a box fan helps me now to keep the noise out during naps.
Bless you for not giving her up for adoption and hanging in there, and you still look great all the time, i would have never known!

glad to hear the sound machine is working. Anything to help kids sleep I'm all for it. Hope she continues to sleep all through the night for you.

I am on your side and cheering for you. Maci STILL wakes up at night sometimes. She is not a sleeper. Hope it lasts...I'll cross my fingers for you.

congratulations on the sleep...as I write this Henry is stirring so I'm up blogging as I anticipate a feeding very shortly. Cool gadget though I may have to look into it.

yay! that must make you feel oh so happy! we love the sound machine over here too. i currently use a bix box fan, though. the sound blocks out any other noise, and keeps the air circulating in her room too.

Unfortunately, I'm one of those mama's you'd dislike cause Audrey's been sleeping through the night since she was 2 mo old, however this sound machine sounds like a great idea when we have all 5 kids in the house at once.....we have to remind them not to run like a herd of cattle upstairs when Audrey's sleeping. Thanks for sharing! I may have to get one of these. Oh, and most importantly, happy day for you mama pickle & Paisley!
