I have a small list of things that need to be accomplished before the baby is born. Two of the most major things to me are 1. Getting Laura Anne to sleep in her toddler bed and 2. For her to be fully potty trained.
I was getting really discouraged this week because, for whatever reason, Laura Anne started waking up in the middle of the night and wouldn't go back to sleep; in her crib, that is. Friday night was the worst. We were all awake from about 3:30 AM to at least 5:30 AM. It ended up with me and Laura Anne on the floor in her room. And she slept there until about 7:30-8:00-ish.
While I was at work last night, Chris called me shortly after Laura Anne's bedtime and said she was screaming and wouldn't go to sleep. I told him she just needs to learn that bedtime means just that. I found out later that he let her cry for another 15 minutes before going in there to lay her back down. He asked her if she wanted to sleep in her big girl bed and she said yes. So he laid her down and was out of the room (with her asleep) in 2 minutes!! I couldn't believe it! If she keeps this up, we can take down the crib some time this week and put it away until the baby comes!! Woo-hoo!
One down, one to go!
