sleeping beauty

We started sleep training last night! I don't know if I really thought it would be easier the second time around, but it really isn't. Doesn't matter if it's your first baby or second, it's still hard to hear them cry. But, she did great. We used the same method we did with Aidric, so she never cried more than 10 minutes without one of us going in to check on her. Once asleep at 10:00 pm, she slept great until 6:00 this morning!!
I remember Aidric caught on really quick at night time, but naps were HORRIBLE. He was never a good napper to begin with, and he fought them so hard when we did the sleep training. I was dreading doing naps today with Jules more than I dreaded last night. Her first nap was a bust and she ended up sleeping in the swing after a failed attempt in the crib. But, for her second nap, she fell asleep after about 20 minutes. I couldn't resist sneaking in to take a few quick pictures of her first big girl nap. (and to get this little blankie out of her hands and off her face!)
