Due to a nasty ear infection no one has been sleeping well around our house. On top of our little peanut screaming for hours, she has decided she doesn't want to stay in her bed if we try to ignore her screaming. Don't get me wrong, we don't let her scream often or for long, but after several nights with only approximately four hours of sleep, it's hard to be really patient.
On night number two of little to no sleep, Emma decided she was not going to sleep in her crib. After trying desperately to get her to sleep for two hours, at 5:00 a.m. mommy caved and made her a bed on the floor in her room. The next day we went out and bought a railing for her bed and now she is in her big girl bed!
Even though she didn't sleep through the night (she only had one dose of her new meds for her ear) she did stay in bed all night. Mommy is proud, but the moment is bittersweet- my little girl is growing up!
