Sleep is a beautiful thing and say goodbye to babas.

Since I don't have a camara right now there won't be any new pictures to post but I wanted to let everyone know whats new in our world. SLEEP. Yes thats right I said sleep. We are all getting more of it in the past week and its making us all happier people . How are we getting more sleep ? We have introduced noah to the sleep sense program. Instead of us rocking him to sleep at night with a bottle and then putting him in his crib he now goes in his crib and falls asleep in there with us in the room. We have been doing this program for 6 nights now gradually moving our chair further from his crib and he's doing awesome. Last night he slept for 10 hours straight which trust me is a beautiful thing.
He is also got tooth #10 half way in and we think #11 might not be far behind..yeah fun times. And huge news that would make his ped very happy we said goodbye to the babas. When we started the sleep program we realized that the only time he got a bottle was at nap or bed time and if he couldnt fall asleep with one then we might as well just say goodbye to them forever so for a week now we haven't had one and I think he's ok with that now. Its on to straight sippy cups and straw cups and time to pack up the bottles and send them to some babies in need. Perhaps they will find their way to Ethiopia to hannah's hope.
