It took Avin a year to actually sleep through the night! Sure she did 1 maybe 2 nights in a row here or there just to tease us but to actually do a week plus in a row she was over a year old. It was a long restless year and now that she is finally sleeping through the night my body is finally starting to get
used to an actual 7 or 8 hours of sleep at night.
Avin usually goes to sleep around 8 / 8:30pm and has been waking up at 6:30 / 7:30 am. There have been a few nights where she wakes up in the middle of the night but I usually just let her cry herself back to sleep. If she isn't asleep within 15 minutes then I go in, put her nook back in, lay her down and walk back out. It has been working and normally she doesn't even wake up so I don't have to worry about it.
When she wakes up in the morning she is usually talking to herself and playing with her blankets or her Pelican that is in there and the things that are in the Pelicans mouth. She will usually sit in there for 10 minutes just happy. Happy because she actually got a good nights sleep.
Avin has always been super easy to put to sleep. You can always tell when she is getting tired and once she is tired she just falls right asleep. Well that was all until recently when she completely changed and putting her to bed is a NIGHTMARE! She will not lay still in your arms, she will lay lay near you, she screams and tosses and turns. So I finally decided that we just needed to put her in her crib, pat her side or back or stomach or head and walk out. Last night took a little more patting on the butt but tonight my husband was in there for 2 minutes and walked out and she fell asleep on her own!
SHE FELL ASLEEP ON HER OWN PEOPLE!
This is huge!
I mean are we finally getting to a point where she is going to fall asleep on her own and wake up happy playing in her crib?!?!
SOMEONE PINCH ME!
These pictures where taken after her nap on day. She played in her crib for about 10 minutes and when
I went in to get her she was so happy she wanted to hold and bring all her blankets with her.
