An amazing thing has happened at our house and I wanted to make sure I documented it somewhere. Sammy is starting to learn to put himself to sleep.

It's not as awesome as we just set him in his bed awake and he goes to sleep on his own...but he's getting there. We only have to hold and rock him for no more than 5 minutes and then he's out! It's amazing! It's a whole different world.

Plus, his morning nap is almost always 2+ hours. I can't even describe how amazing it is to know that he's getting enough rest. Up to this point he almost never took naps longer than 40 minutes. I was getting REALLY stressed out about it.

But things are getting MUCH better.

The ear doctor hates it when I say stuff like this because he thinks I'll jinx it and the baby will suddenly take a downward spiral into screaming-never-sleep-land. In fact, I think he's decided to start calling me Jinxy-cat.

Too bad for him (1) I've never in my life had a nick name stick and (2) I wouldn't be too sad if that one did's kind of cute.

That is so great! I hate the sleep deprived part of being a parent.

These ad people leave comments on our blog too... I just filter them so they go straight to spam and don't show up on our blog. Annoying.
