I have been letting Kylie cry herself to sleep lately and I hate it. Yet I love it at the same time too. I feel horrible the entire time she is screaming but so relieved when she actually falls asleep and its amazing how much more time I gain by not having to rock or nurse her to sleep and how much easier it is for me to get Macy to bed when Kylie can be working on going to sleep at the same time. Fortunately Macy is also getting more used to Kylie crying which is preparing us for tomorrow night when we will start letting Kylie cry during the night when she wakes up. She has gotten in this terrible habit (my fault- I know) where she won't go to sleep unless I nurse her at night. I got into this habit because I so desperately wanted to keep her quiet so she wouldn't wake up Macy. Well, after several weeks of little sleep Justin and I are going to join forces tomorrow night and start working on the cry it out method. I am praying it works, otherwise it will be torture for nothing (I think she just fell asleep- by the way). I have been researching online the last several days and I have decided that we must do it. I also want to do it better than we did with Macy because Macy struggled with sleeping well up to 18 months.
Here are some cute pics of Kylie from this evening:Kylie enjoys standing behind Macy's princess car but she hasn't figured out how to walk with it yet. That wouldn't matter except Macy likes to jump on and "drive" it, resulting in Kylie being drug behind. Such fun little children!
