Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Ella slept through the night last night! She's almost 7 months, but this was the first time she's done this. I know a lot of people who have had kids who've slept through the night almost from the beginning. Not my children. Max didn't until he was 10 1/2 months. But Ella does go to bed around 8:00, so I figured that the trade off was a 3AM bottle. But I'm hoping this newfound sleep pattern suits her well, because I would LOVE some serious solid hours of sleep.

Hooray! I'm very jealous. We have a LONG way to go on the sleeping through the night- I can't even begin to imagine what that might be like and have a hard time remembering what I felt like when I used to get sleep at night.
What about naps? It's all 20-30 minute cat naps during the day around here... when did the kids start taking longer naps? I'd go just for that right now

Ella used to take those short naps, too. I honestly can't tell you when they got longer. But I know that she slept much longer when in her carseat than lying flat on her back in her bed. So if you haven't tried that for a nap, maybe it will work better.

Wow, first Cameron and now Ella. Is max making any giant steps forward?

Yeah Ella! What a way to out shine the boys. HA! HA! She is such a big girl. Hopefully now you (Mom) will get a good night's rest. You deserve it.
