So, last night we put Makenna down at about 8:45. She would only sleep for about 5 minutes and then wake up. This went on for about 30 min. DJ and I tried everything we knew to do and it didn't work so we ended up letting her cry. She cried for about 15 min and then she fell asleep. She woke up at 11:00 and so I decided to put her in bed with us and see if that made her sleep better. She slept from 11:00 to 5:45 this morning!!!!! WOW!! I know people say not to let your children sleep with you but that was the firs decent nights sleep I've had in 6 weeks so I don't care. She slept great. I woke up several times to check on her and she was snoozing away. I still woke up a lot because I wasn't used to her sleeping with us but most of the time I was able to fall back asleep easily. Her little noises she makes when she is sleeping are so cute! I just laid there and listened to her and DJ sleep. It was a beautiful sound. So, for now until we can figure out what else to do Makenna is going to sleep with us. No matter what other people say, we need to sleep.
