The most amazing thing.

The most amazing thing happened tonight. The night before last, I thought I'd see what happened if I put Harper in her crib for bedtime while she was still awake. She fussed for about 10 to 15 minutes and needed two soothings to get to sleep. I thought, "Hey, that wasn't too bad."

Last night she fell asleep early while she was having her bottle and stayed asleep when I put her in her crib. She slept until 7:30 AM this morning. I thought that was pretty amazing.

But now for the really amazing part. Tonight I thought, "Well, let's try this whole put her in her crib thing again." At 8:45 PM she seemed sleepy. I took her upstairs, put her in her crib, and walked away. Not a peep. She just went to sleep. Well, she did manage to do a 180 degree turn before she did, but she didn't make a single fussy sound. I had to go check on her she was so quiet.

Amazing. I am so lucky.
