Paige has been sleeping through the night (most of the time) for a couple months now, but Piper still liked to wake up every 2-3 hours. Out of self-preservation I finally had to change that a few nights ago. I was the mean mom and let her cry herself back to sleep when she woke up during the night (and cry she did - Piper really fits her name - she does have "pipes"). The first night, she cried for literally 1 1/2 hours (I did go in every 15 minutes, but just hugged her and laid her back down), but she is a quick learner though and the second night she must have realized that I was not going to get her up and she only cried for 10 minutes. Last night - I slept through the night!!!!! Sleep is amazing - I think I forgot how nice it was. It has made me a happier mom as well (my poor kids - I have not been extremely patient with them lately). I now look forward to going to bed because I get to wake up rested - so I am going to sign off the computer and SLEEP!!!
