Happy Birthday, James!!!

Well, Logan's very best friend, James, is 1 today! So we just wanted to wish him a very happy birthday! That is, until the party on Saturday (which also happens to be Aunt Savannah's birthday).

Also, a sleep update. The Pick Up/Put Down method is going well. Onto night #2. Last night went surprisingly well. Too well, I would have to say. The book warns that it is hard the first few nights and that you could have to do it over 100 times. Snap. Well, I only had to do it 8 times last night. And he slept until 7, at which time I fed him and he went back down until 9. So, this evening I have had to lay him back down 24 times thus far. Not too bad. Now he is laying awake, but not crying. That is the goal...for him to learn to put himself to sleep without crying. So, night two is underway and going well! Take care, all!

I'm glad the sleep training is going so well. Getting sleep with a baby is such a frustrating thing. I was thinking about this while reading your post: I haven't slept through the night since early April 2006! Eldon and Lilly will still wake up a couple of times throughout the night. We've tried a bunch of things--none of which have worked completely or permanently. We're hopeful day it's going to happen! Good luck!

What book did you read? Logan and MAdi sleep great through the night. And even though Grant is only 1 month old, I am worried that I will train him to nurse his way back to sleep at night. (We did this with our Logan, so I weary of it happening again!)
