Better Than Christmas

You know what's better than waking up on Christmas morning?

Waking up at 7 AM and realizing your children (and you) have SLEPT ALL NIGHT.

I planned on waking up and nursing Ezra and Elliott at 3 AM or so when they cried, but it never happened. They slept through the night, and we couldn't be happier. They were so alert and energetic today, and I can tell they are feeling the effects of resting well. They went down amazingly for their naps and now they are back in bed.

I am so happy that I could cry. Actually, I have cried. I am so relieved and hopeful. I feel like I can be an even better mother now that I am resting. Our prayers have been answered, and I am thankful. 

Ezra did have a rough time falling asleep tonight, but we stuck with our routine and reassured him that he was okay. I know that they may not fall asleep immediately each night and that they may need one feeding, but simply seeing results is changing our world. 

Oh, to sleep again! 


  1. So much for "incredibly cruel". Way to go, Mama!

  2. I'm SOOOOO happy!! That's just amazing! Hip Hop Hooray!
