Our very own Christmas miracle

Joy to the world, Shane sleeps all night, la la la, la la la la la la........

That has such a nice ring to it; I should be a songwriter, hahahahahahaha.

But it's true! We had been waiting for just the right time to nightwean him, and we decided Christmas would be a great time because Lloyd would have several days off in a row. And it definitely had to be Lloyd; we have learned from experience that if I'm there he will scream until he gets what he wants. And let's face it, he gets what he wants sooner or later, so I figure it's much better to give him the nursies right away and spare myself the screaming. Very logical, right? So you can see, it had to be Lloyd.

We picked the day way in advance. We got all prepared. We braced ourselves for the screaming and the sleepless nights. And guess what? There was about 2o minutes of whimpering the first night, and after three nights, he was hardly waking at all.

Tra la la, tra la la la la la.......................

Yay! I bet it feels to good to finally sleep through the night doesn't it!?

Lucky dog. I'm kind of wondering if Emma's behavior is equivalent to night nursing. (Seeking Mommy out for love at night. She definitely gets more worked up and is less cooperative if Robert goes in and not me.)
