has me doing things I did NOT do with my other children. I don't know how much of it is because this is our last child (by birth..see more about that here) or is part of it because she is a little girl? I hate to think that I am whipped because she is a girl because I love my boys like crazy and obsessed over them too when they were ity bity.
So what happened, you ask? She has been successfully sleeping through the night for two weeks now. For 10-12 hours. She dropped her 2 a.m feeding that long ago. I feed her at 8 p.m and she will wake up some time between 6-8 a.m. Not once has she made a peep through the night. Then an hour ago she started to wake up.. just a bit fussy. She was obviously going to start crying..which she did.. but not for long when I (GASP) went and got her. Normally, I would just let my littles cry until they went back to sleep. I know for some that is unthinkable, but that's the way we do it and our kids have always had great sleeping habits. But today (or this EARLY morning) I took it a step further. I actually (GASP AGAIN) fed her! I fed the child who so obviously doesn't NEED to eat since she has already adjusted to those long nights. As my big sister says, "if they can do it once they can do it again." And she had done it for two weeks! What was I thinking. But even as I was sitting there on the couch feeding her at 3 a.m. I was just staring at her. She was so cute! I mean really who could not adore that sweet little pudgy face?
I guess it's not the worst thing in the world, huh?
I'm a lost cause.
going to bed now.. and she is blissfully asleep in her bed again..
