We did it, we did it, we did it! - Updated

Update 8/17/10 - Both kids have slept all the way through the night for the past two nights! That's right, a whole 12 hours each. I know this is not the end of getting up in the middle of the night but I feel so much better today :)

I think we are finally diaper free when it comes to Izabel and it feels so good! Not that she's been using too many diapers the last few months, but now there are none sitting in her closet and she does not get one when she goes to bed! We finally let go of our own fear and sent her to bed in undies and she woke up dry. Then she did it again! I'm so excited for her because it must be so much more comfortable and she really feels like a big girl. She tells everyone she has super powers! Yay Izzy on meeting yet another milestone, we did it!

In other news, Tanner seems to be going through a poor sleeping phase. He's always been a pretty good sleeper and if he did wake up all we had to do was hand him a binky and he'd go right back to sleep. However, the past few weeks he has been waking up a lot and definitely not going right back to sleep. We've been letting him cry it out but sometimes (like last night) that doesn't even work. I know it's just a phase because we went through this with Izzy, but it still sucks. He's been really cranky during the day because he's not getting enough sleep! I think he is finally getting some more teeth. Any thoughts or suggestions for the sleepy people in my house?!?!

Congratulations, Izabel! :) I read that you can lull your baby to sleep with the music you listened to or sang to him during your pregnancy.

I hope you guys will catch up on winks!
