Last night I decided to NOT nurse Lillian to sleep, and instead nurse her with the lights on before I swaddled her. I then put her down in the crib, turned the lights off and hid on the floor where she couldn't see me. She talked to herself for a few minutes and then started fussing, so I put my hand on her chest and gave her the pacifier. She quieted down and then I moved away from her. We went back and forth like this for about 15 minutes and then she finally spit the pacifier out and fell asleep at 7pm. ON HER OWN!
She didn't wake up until 1:15am.
And then not again until 5:30am.
I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel and I'm so much happier today.
Now I have to go get my car emissions tested ...
