So I've started 2 blog posts in the past week or so but have never gotten around to actually posting them. So I'm really posting this one this time. This week I have began to let my daughter cry it out. The first 2 nights were failures. She cried for over an hour and didn't go to sleep and I ended up putting her to sleep. Well tonight is night 3 and it was not unsuccessful. SHE PUT HERSELF TO SLEEP! After 55min of crying. And her momma's nerves still being a wreck. I really want to just go pick her up and hold her little sleeping self right now but I know I can't. It'll ruin everything. I kept a log tonight. To pass the time and to have something to look at tomorrow night when she's screaming her head off. Here it is;
6:55 laid her down fussed for a few seconds
7:00 no crying
7:02 started fussing/crying
7:08 went to check on her. as soon as I left the room she started crying again.
7:13 stopped crying for almost a whole min.
7:15 went to check on her. started crying when I walked away. made it to the door this time though.
7:22 went to check. started crying as soon as I walked away
7:32 went to check. started crying, well more like screaming when I walked away
7:49 went to check. cried when I walked away.
7:51 stopped crying
7:55 fussed
7:56 no more fussing
8:05 no noise at all. I think she might be asleep.
8:15 went to check. SHE'S ASLEEP!!!
Yep so that was a little over an hour of my life tonight. I'm hoping tomorrow night goes better. Or at least the same. Now I will leave you with pictures of my beautiful baby. Oh yeah, I forgot to fix all the red eye again. So if that bothers you I'm sorry.

Madelynn with My Grandma. Grandma's not to good at the whole picture taking thing. She hates it just as much as I do.

I am excited that Madelynn got herself to sleep. You will all be happier when she can do that all the time. And it will be easier for when #2 comes ;)
