The first night, Holden slept right through didn’t get up once! The second night…he got up once but Sleep Zen Master got him back to sleep in less than 5 minutes, AND he didn’t pick him up! The third night, or should I say morning was a bit rough…but he didn’t nurse to sleep as usual (we were at bible study) Grandmere put him to sleep, and he wanted to nurse at 4am…so Tom was in there from 4-6:30 with Holden sleeping as long as Tom was there but as soon as he tried to leave awake he was! After that night…he was done…slept through most nights with maybe needing the Sleep Zen Master for 5 minutes every couple of nights or so….
Then we went on vacation…to Catalina…I thought “uh oh, here we go again…” BUT again…Holden just needed the Sleep Zen Master…of course when Tom left us in Catalina it was a little harder…I am definitely not Sleep Zen Master…and it turns out neither is my mom…so I did break down and nurse him the last two nights…and don’t even ask me about the LAST night…we were up for several hours (I hate teething!) but then we returned home to the Sleep Zen Master and things were OK again:-) Still sleeping through the night….
Now if I could just get him to decide on one LONG nap or two smaller ones we would be conquering the sleep! But I tell you, I feel like a new mama now that I am getting to sleep through every night! Yay!
And I have to tell you discovering Tom is the Sleep Zen Master has been awesome…get this folks…he goes in there and put his hand on Holden’s back and sings to him! And the most amazing thing is he sings, Amazing Grace…I sang this song to Holden every time we were up all night when he was a newborn! And now in church if we sing it during worship, Holden smiles and rests his head on my shoulder…SO SWEET! I love my boys!
