Seventeen on the seventeenth

Yesterday Maisie turned 17 months old and what a day and night we had. In the morning we met with the Ladies-who-lunch and the wee girly-girls for a play date at Monkey Joe's followed by lunch. Maisie fell asleep on the drive home and I was actually able to transfer her to the p-n-p where the girl who does not nap, napped for about 40 minutes. Daphne and Emily came back to the house with us and once Maisie awoke, she, Emily and Eammon pulled out every available toy and had a good time playing. Greg joined us once he got off work and then I grilled some steaks for dinner.

Maisie sleeps 1 After Daphne, Greg & Emily left it was bedtime for little Miss M so I got her settled into the p-n-p where she fell asleep right around 8PM. Then wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles, she slept though until 6:47am at which time I was able to settle her back down where she slept until just past 8am. Wow what a great feeling for me, to finally get some sleep!! What made the night so amazing is that Maisie generally wakes every 1.5-2 hours all night long always checking to make sure I'm there and needing to be calmed. Though generally I can get her back to sleep within 15 minutes or so, sometimes she'll stay awake and want to play for hours at a time. And just because she's able to fall back asleep within 15 minutes or so, that doesn't mean I'm falling back to sleep. Once again Wow, what a difference for me, getting a decent nights sleep and I hope this is the start of a new and improved sleeping pattern for both of us. Who knows, maybe soon I'll actually get her to sleep in her crib in her very own room.
