I just had to announce it everywhere because it has NEVER happened before, but Leigha has been asleep for 12 HOURS!!! She went down at 10:30 p.m. last night. She did have a brief crying session at 12 but I was able to put her pacifier in her mouth and pat her back and put her back to sleep. She then woke up to nurse for 30 minutes at 5:00 am, and she has been asleep ever since.
I am estatic about this because for the past 2 weeks she has decided that essentially she doesn't need to nap for longer than 30 minutes a day....which as any parent knows only leads to extreme crying in the evenings, or really any time of day.
I am relishing this time. We are planning on delivering rice krispie treats to our neighbors today and I have been fast and furiously been making batches and batches of the things while she is sleeping.
Well it was a short post, but I hear her waking up. Maybe she will get to watch some of the rose parade afterall. :D
