I wore ear plugs last night. I only got up with Starbuck once. Once! WHEEE!!! She's been waking up at 1 and 4ish lately, ever since her ear infection. After talking to Mellie, who turned off her monitor and discovered that her son was capable of putting himself to sleep, I decided to put in ear plugs. And WOW!!!
I put Starbuck down for a nap while she was still awake--- something I've been working on with her. She hasn't adjusted as well as TPJ did at this age--- but it's working! She soothed herself to sleep this morning quicker than she ever has.
And now I'm drinking decaf unsweetened (but sweetened with sweetner) tea and trying to resist the lure of caffeine.... just a half a mt.dew would make my eyes pop open....
And life is ok. :)
