Shhhh...did you hear something? NO?! Really?!

As a parent of 4 girls, I have learned to appreciate the small things in life.  Really, some the of the smallest things end up being the biggest.

Last night, for the first time ever, Little Miss slept through the night.
  It took almost 8 months, but she did it!  And, to add to the victory, B and JK didn't wake up with any monsters or need for anything either.  The Lord certainly shone peace on this house last night.


I am sooooo excited!!  I know, it's not that big of a deal.  But IT IS!!!

Whohoo! That is a big deal!

Ashley said...

Congratulations on a good night sleep! No kids yet for us but our puppy makes sure we don't sleep through the night!

Adelaine said...

Oh but that is a big deal!!! The question is whether YOU slept through the night or were you up checking on the kids because "something must be wrong if they are waking up!!" (I'm guilty of that....when that happens I'm sure that the baby has a fever)

I have a wooden sign in my living room with the saying on the first picture :) Love the baby pic too - precious...

Thank you for your comment. I love your blog so much. I love mom's who want to shout from the mountains how much they love their children. I too have a great neice that is my foster child through the courts. She is 16. My family is a "his,mine,ours and somebody elses" family. We have 8 total, 4 under my roof! We love all of them very much. I cant wait to get to know you and your experiences of motherhood!!!!

Congrats! Hope you're enjoying your sleep.

I have twins, 12 and a singleton, 9. One of the twins is STILL waking up during the night. He will bring his pillow & blanket and just lay down on the floor next to my side of the bed. (sssshhhh, don't tell! he'd kill me if he knew I told you any of this) But as a Mom you know when your kids are moving around especially when they come into your room. Here's the funny thing depending on what time of night Twin A comes in Twin B will come looking for Twin A. So there very well could be TWO sleeping on my floor!

oh how nice!! Lucas isn't sleeping through the night (he's 6 months) but Kayla slept through the night at just a couple months old, so I'm not used to this! He's slept through a handful of times, but not consistent at all! I'm looking forward to when it is! :)
