A miracle has happened, everyone, a miracle. I am in such shock that I can barely type. I want to call everyone I know, everyone who has heard about the sleeping battles I have had w/my darling Isabella.
Deep breaths, Michelle, deep breaths.
She. Fell. Asleep. In. Her. Crib.
SHE FELL ASLEEP IN HER CRIB!!! Finally!! After 8 1/2 months of refusing to sleep anywhere except my arms and waking up almost everytime I would lay her down.
I feel accomplished, like I can do anything at this point!
I made her a bottle, gave her the bottle and then laid her down. She was pretty quiet with the exception of one fussy moment. I went in there, covered her with her blankie, gave her the bottle and kissed her. I quietly told her how much I loved her.
Then I walked out.
Quiet, peacefulness, stillness echoed through my house.
Worried, I went and checked on her. And this is what I saw.
My little girl is growing up. And I couldn't be more proud of her.
