Growing up even more!

I had to post our good and exciting news that Kathryn slept the whole night last night in her crib! Now, she didn't sleep through the night (she woke up still to eat several times), but she went at least 3 hours between each of her feedings, and slept all by herself the rest of the time. She even put herself to sleep some (laid there and dozed off). I don't know if this was just a one-time thing, or if we're on to a new era of night-time sleeping. Putting her in the crib was pretty much an experiment, because she hasn't been sleeping very well in her bassinet recently. I was a little nervous about it, but Johnny was so sweet to pray with me before we went to sleep, and God was gracious in aleviating those fears so that I could rest well. I don't know if we just heard her every peep in the bassinet and putting her in the crib prevented that, or if she really did just sleep better. Either way, I feel great after getting up at 8:30 for the day (instead of sleeping in till 10 because of desperation and lack of sleep) well-rested and ready for all that God has in store for today. I will try to snap a picture of her in the crib sometime and post it on here. Till then, I'm hopeful that we are on to a new stage in life, one of improved sleeping!

I'm so glad you were able to wake up well rested! I have a feeling that Kathryn sleeping in her crib is going to be great and that she is on her way to sleeping through the night!!
