Finally Sleeping!!

So i probably shouldn't be saying this out loud but both of my children have finally started sleeping through the night- IN THERE OWN BEDS!!!

Caiden has always been on and off with his sleeping, some nights he does good others he's in my room 3 and 4 times. Part of this is my own fault though. He is only 4 years old and has moved 4 times. That is alot for a child to deal with plus right after we moved this last time he got a new sister, making it even more difficult for him to adjust. He used to sleep in his own bed in our bedroom for about 2 years which worked out great for awhile, everyone got to sleep, but when we found out i was pregnant the thought of two children sleeping in our room didn't sound too appealing! So now 9 months after his sister arrived and after 1 year of living here, he is sleeping all night in his room =)

Hailey slept on the couch with me for about the first 4 months ( it was the only way so slept good and i was so exhausted, i didn't care where i slept as long as my eyes where closed) We finally put her in her own room and she would sleep about half the night in there and the other half with me. Well this past week she has been doing so good. Out of 7 days she has slept 5 all night! Some mornings i almost don't believe it and rush into her room to make sure she's okay. It's been especially hard with her because i strictly nurse her so my husband can't get up with her. Most mornings i need at least one cup of coffee to function normal=)

I really can't believe how much energy a full nights sleep can give you. Hopefully both of my children stay on this schedule and don't fall back into there old ways!!!

Hi, I found your blog from another blog I visited.

It is amazing how a full night's sleep rejuvinates you! I have a 2 yr old & a 4 month old & the 4 month old all of a sudden out of nowhere started sleeping 12 hours at nite at 2 1/2 months. My 2 yr old is a great sleeper & is still in his crib. So having both of them down for the night by 8:30pm is pure HEAVEN!! I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd have it this great so soon! Hope it continues for you!!

I remember those days. Don't really care to visit them again, but I know I will when my kids are out all hours of the night doing the things I did when I was in high school!
