Praise Jesus for the Ferber method... this is a picture of my child napping in her crib!! I feel like a human again instead of a mere shell of a person stumbling around trying to complete a coherent sentence. She's sleeping from 7:30-7:30 at night with only 1 feeding and having two REAL naps during the day. Today she even slept for 2 hours at one of them! I turn on her aquarium and she watches it and plays with her babies until she drifts happily off to sleep. AMAZING!

I also have one week accomplished with my new fervor for cleaning on schedule.
Monday - dust
Tuesday- vacuum and laundry
Wednesday- bathrooms
Thursday- floors
Friday- deep kitchen and laundry
I'll work up to more times a week when Lily can do a little more by herself. For now... this is the most on top of things I've felt since we've been married. I'd like to be a stay at home mom for a LONG time... so I feel I need to be a VERY good one at ALL parts.

I'll end with this ... just 'cause it's funny:

Well I am impressed. I didn't know laying a baby in a crib to sleep had a special name. I am thrilled for you. I was getting a little worried about your sleep. I know you don't love sleep(probverbs) but we sure do like it alot. Adorable picture of sseet Lily. I have a feeling she is going to be quite a character. Nana

Cool typing Nana :) I am proud of Lily and you and Jeff for sticking with the sleep training! I know what you mean about feeling like a real person again. Also--way to go on the cleaning schedule. You've inspired me to try that too.
