IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

4 weeks from today baby makes her debut! I AM SO READY. Emotionally still scared and nervous about having two, but just really ready to meet her and for her to join our family.  I start going to the doctor every week now to get updates. She said since I was late with Cash, I'll probably be late with her. Bah hum bug. ALSO she gave me the option to induce at 39 weeks but nothankyougoodlord. I'll wait patiently until she is given an official eviction notice.


Cash has officially been sleeping through the night for about a WEEK now! We had one really off night because he had a tooth coming in, but he put himself back to sleep eventually and we haven't had to hear him cry since! Then one morning he woke up at 5 AM but just played in his crib for a few hours without crying. I made it a rule to not go in there to get him until 7 AM (unless he starts screaming and it's like 6:30) but so far he's been an angel with the 7 rule.  Brett & I actually stayed up to watch TWO MOVIES this weekend. Something we haven't done in like a year and a half. It's a big deal you guys.


There's also someone I want to introduce you to that I think has been a huge help in night weaning.  Maybe it's all in my head but now I can't imagine not having THIS.  We have the regular Graco Sound Machine in his room which he's heard since he was a wee one and I am never giving that up. But I read about this other thing in one of the 100 books I ordered about sleep training so thought we'd try it. We put it outside his room and crank up the white noise setting. You see our house is really open and there is no carpet aka you can hear freaking e-v-e-r-y-t-h-I-n-g. And having 3 dogs who love to bark doesn't help either.  Anyways, this little machine seems to help block out all the noise going into his room so we use it every night and now have started to use it during nap time too. Highly recommend.


One last thing, a special shout out to Brett who's been my biggest support system through this pregnancy and journey of momma-hood so far. He made my Valentine's so special and I'd go to another concert until 1 AM with him any time :) Love you bebe!
