Last night Miss Frida slept on her own -- without coming to get me, without getting out of bed at all -- from 8:30 until 4:30 a.m.!!! If you have never had a little one with sleep "challenges" you might not think that this is cause for celebration, but believe me when I say, that in context, this is a MAJOR ACHIEVEMENT! I wasn't awoken until 4:30 a.m. -- hallelujah!
When she did wake up, Frida crawled into bed with us and "cuddled" for a while, waking up happily at 7:30 a.m. Good girl! And then my sweet husband took her downstairs for some Backyardigans-viewing and let me sleep until 9:30 a.m.!!!! I feel so much better today -- a total turnaround from yesterday, when I was miserable with a cold, now just a sniffle.
Frida isn't a baby anymore, although it seems like yesterday that she looked like this:
She's a big girl now, 3 years old!
I have told her that she can have a nightgown -- made by mama, just like her big sister's -- when she learns how to sleep on her own, in her bed, at night. Honestly, I will settle for 8:30 - 4:30.
So if -- let's say when -- you see a post about nightgown sewing, you can take it as a good sign!
