Long Awaited Sleep!

For about the past week and a half, Corgan has been sleeping through the night! This is happening now because he has been sleeping in Annabelle's crib/room and Annabelle has been sleeping in the playpen downstairs in the guest room with Grammy. I had never seriously considered putting Annabelle in another room to sleep and giving Corgan her room because Annabelle is such a great sleeper now that I didn't want to do anything to mess up her wonderful sleeping habits, but... one afternoon a week and a half ago they were taking out the french doors in our bedroom, which is also Corgan's room, so I had to put him somewhere else for his nap. He slept in Annabelle's crib, so when it came time for Annabelle to take a nap, I just suggested to her that she sleep in "Grammy's room". She was fine with that. She slept really well too, so I thought I'd suggest it again that night. She went for it, so Corgan got to sleep in her room. And the rest is history!

Corgan does occasionally wake up once around 1-2am, but I don't go in there and he puts himself back to sleep within minutes. He has been going to bed around 8:30pm and waking up around 5:30-6am to eat. I feed him and put him right back to bed, and he sleeps until at least 7:30-8! It's been WONDERFUL! I think we have some new sleeping arrangements until the new rooms are available!

I am so happy for you!!!!! I know how exciting that is. I don't know how people have a family bed for long periods of time because I firmly believe that EVERYONE sleeps better in separate rooms.

Such great news!! I can't imagine going as long as you've gone without solid nights of sleep. I must say, you held up well through it all! Glad to hear you're finally getting the sleep you deserve. :)
