I should keep my mouth shut, but…

I know as soon as I write this I will forever regret it, but I can’t help but celebrate.  Harper slept though the night last night!  For the first time!  For months I have been a mess of indecision about how to get her to sleep.  We vaguely attempted sleep training (crying it out), but I don’t have the stomach for it.  I think I might be able to tolerate it better, if I didn’t know people who went thought weeks of sleepless nights listening to their babies cry, celebrated their success, and a month later had to do it all over again.  I thought about dream feeding her, but I’m just too sleepy at the end of the day.  So, while I was fretting about what to do, she slept without my help or intervention.

Of course, now that I have told you about this, she probably won’t sleep thought the night till she is 18.  Oh well.  I have been up since 4:30 a.m. anyway, too excited to sleep.
