First trip to Lowe's, Naptime with Moe, and a Little Penguin

Not much going on in Gervensland. The most excitement we've had is the happy dance we do at 11:00pm when Trudy goes down for the night. Still, as long as there's a cutie patootie in the house, there will be something to blog.

Sleep training is going really well. We feel like we have our lives back! Trudy sleeps through the night consistently and with naps is getting about 14 hours of sleep every 24 hours. She is either awake and happy or asleep. I'm now a believer in the cry-it-out method even though it is horrible to have to go through the first night. Totally worth it for us and her.

Gigi just happened to be in Baby Gap one afternoon....Isn't the penguin adorable!

And we felt like Trudy's first trip to the home improvement store was worth documenting. The first of many trips with her dad. He is installing a woodburning stove for the winter. I can't wait to enjoy our first cozy fire.

Yup letting them cry it out pretty much works for everything.

I have only had to do the cry it out method a handful of times. Usually when Brooke is good and tired she goes to bed without a fight. I remember the 11:00 bed time. It's so nice when it moves up to an earlier hour. Last night she went to bed at 8:30 and woke up after 9 this morning! Woot woot! Must be another growing spurt. She has slept thru the night since day 1. AWESOME!
