She sleeps!

Sleep. It is so very important to me. I always knew this, and was really one of my biggest worries about becoming a mother- the lack of sleep. I do not function well on no sleep. Not at all.

After a year of Annie not sleeping, I think I am still amazed- in utter shock really- every time she naps well and sleeps through the night. Seriously, at this point I believe she is sleeping better than even Riley ever did. It is impossible to even consider....but it is true. She goes to bed between 7 and 7:30 every night. She is thrilled to go to bed. She knows when it is time, sometimes even puts her head down on a pillow on the floor....guess that is my cue! On the weekends, she sleeps until about 8am. Sometimes 8:30.

She naps for 2 hours. I think she would sleep later if I let her. Today she napped for 2 1/2 hours. She gets so grumpy and then I know it is time. We have our little ritual, and off she goes.

She goes down awake now every single time. I haven't had to rock her to sleep in ages.

It is crazy. But I LOVE it! :)

I just started getting my nights back where I don't have to take 3 hours of my life to put my kids to bed. I love it!
