Yay! Ellie slept through the night last night! She went from 8:30-7 without waking up or needing to eat. She had gone the prior three nights without eating, but this was the first time we didn’t have to get up at all. For other parents out there, I really want to share our methodology. A lot of people told us if we wanted her to sleep through the night we had to just let her cry it out, but I had a seriously difficult time accepting that. After doing some research, we found an alternative called the No-Cry Sleep Solution. We thought it was pretty hokey, but we did it for three nights anyway and apparently it works! Here is a link to the information: http://www.pantley.com/elizabeth/books/0071381392.php?nid=172&isbn=0071381392. All we did was read this blurb, rather than buying the book.
My first week back at work was good and we had such an awesome weekend, first visiting with Grandma and Grandpa Doman at Lake Tapps and then going down to Hood Canal. We went to the Tahuya parade, Brian went crabbing and we visited with family a ton. Here are some fun pics of our visit.
