Sleep Training Day #2

Last night wasn't too terrible. But since I'm sleeping on the couch for the next week, I didn't really notice if Abigail woke up. I think I got a full 6 hours straight of sleep. Woohoo! That's the most sleep that I've gotten straight since the last time Abigail spent the night at grandma and grandpa's house.

Matthan woke up with her around midnight and fed her a bottle, then put her back in her crib. She fell asleep almost instantly. She woke up again, not sure what time, but Matthan popped her pacifier back in her mouth and she went right back to sleep. 

6:30 rolls around and Matthan wakes me up to nurse Abby since he used the last of the formula earlier that night. I wasn't fully awake so I forgot that if she woke up between 5:30 and 7:30 to get up and start our day. Whoops. There's bound to be mistakes made, right? She ate, I put her back in her crib, and she went right to sleep. Even after lifting her head up and looking around. Progress!

We all got up just before 8. She ate, we played, and then she went down for a nap just before 10. She slept until about 11:30. We both had lunch while Matthan got ready for class, he left then Abigail and I went shopping at the mall. That was probably a mistake on my part because I could tell that she was getting sleepy already. The whole time we were in the mall, she had this drowsy look on her face. 

She fell asleep in the car but woke up when we got home. I tried to put her in her crib to take a nap, but an hour went by and I needed to get our things pack for a weekend with our in-laws. She didn't fall asleep again until we were in the car, halfway there. 

Those were her only naps.

I didn't get her in bed until around 8:15 even though she was showing signs of being really sleepy because we were at my husbands grandmas house visiting. She cried on and off for about 10 minutes and now she's asleep. I think. 

Today wasn't such a great day, so we will see how tomorrow goes. I have a feeling tomorrow won't go so well just because we will be out of the house a lot, going to a funeral and visiting family. I know it's only been one day, but I can definitely tell that she is significantly happier.
