Holy smokes! It's a miracle!

Last night, L'il Sis not only stayed in her bed all night, but she managed to actually sleep all night. She did not wake up and then wake me up with screaming or crying or room invasion. I put her to bed last night ONE time. She stayed in her bed without getting up for her usual wander-around-for-a-bit routine. (She always has some reason for it: bathroom, water, needing a hug) There was no 3 a.m. wake-up call. When I woke up this morning, there was no pint-sized visitor laying next to me. She was still fast asleep in her own room! Yes!

I know she's had a rough year and a half between 2 moves and the deployment in between. But believe me, the no-sleep thing has been rough on me, too!

I woke up in a much better mood than usual this morning. And I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is the beginning of a trend and not just a fluke!

Woo!!! Hooo!!! If I wasn't there when Hannah was born, I would swear that she and Lil' Sis were seperated at birth!

Did you go check to make sure she was still breathing? That was always my first thought when any of mine would stay in their own beds!

Yay! May you have many more of those nights. :D

You will so miss this in 6 or 7 years. I promise. And as previously pointed out, you'll go check on her anyway.

I gave you an award over on my blog. Check it out when you get a chance.

Yipppeeee!!! Fingers crossed this is the beginning of her new way of doing the evening thing. :)
