Night One Recap

The girls did great!! Norah slept all night! She was quite proud of herself this morning and excited to put a sticker on her chart! Lucy woke up about 9:45 crying very hard. If Kevin hadn't been around, I might have given in to her because she looked so pitiful. He kept reminding me that breaking both of their habits is easier on us in the long run - I know he's right, but Lucy looked so sad and she just doesn't understand. She cried for about 15-20 minutes - even with me rocking her or rubbing her back. She was awake again about midnight - this time for only a few minutes. She woke up this morning around 6:30 and couldn't wait to take her gloves off! She was also excited to put a sticker on her chart - however, she ripped hers off several times through out the day. She's obviously 2.

Lucy didn't nap - I tried, but she cried and cried. I gave her about a 1/2 hour and then let her get up. It was a long afternoon for all of us - but we survived and Lucy fell asleep tonight within 15 minutes!! Yea!!

Norah just went to bed - so we'll see what happens tonight!!

The first several nights were the most difficult, but for us it got much better after that. :)
