A Step Forward

It’s working!!!  I’m so excited!  I’m actually seeing a little bit of progress in the whole helping William sleep scenario.  I’ve been employing some of the techniques laid out in the The No-Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley.  She warns that her methods take time, weeks, even months of time, and she’s right, but it was incredibly encouraging to see some forward motion over the weekend.  On Saturday evening, William actually lay quietly in my lap, sleepily jabbered for a few minutes, and then closed his eyes and went to sleep.  That has never, NEVER, happened before.

We still have a long way to go.  He still nurses 2-3 times at night, and he’s still cranky and crotchety for mommy in the evenings (there’s been a lot of clawing and hair tearing going on), but he’s slowly learning that he doesn’t have to nurse himself into a coma every single time.  That, and when he fusses in the middle of the night, sometimes he can roll over and go back to sleep by himself.  Wheeeee!

God is good and granting some prayers here!  I will definitely keep at this and keep praying too.

Of course in other news, Michael and Gabriel got colds yesterday, but you can’t win ’em all.

Here’s wishing you an awesome start to your week!
