Gasp! Could it be?

After a few hard, emotional nights of letting Mr. Kruzer cry it out, I think we have done it. I mean sleeping from night to morning. Without interruption. Dare I say it though? Kruzer's regular routine is this, nurses right before bed and I brush his teeth. For those of you who know me, you know I am FREAK about teeth. I feel like nursing him in the middle of the night after him having cut some teeth is equivalent to him having a bottle at night-which most of you know will rot baby teeth pretty quickly. So, over the weekend in an effort to take better care of his teeth I started letting him cry it out-which is the HARDEST thing when it comes to your baby. And Kruzer is MY baby. Every time he woke up to nurse and crying, "Mamamamamama..." in his bed, I had to let him cry himself back to sleep. Eh, I hate doing that. But, only a few nights later-last night and the night before he slept ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Beginning to end. Front to back baby! And do you know what this means? Mommy is sleeping all night too. A first since 2006 I believe. Since February 2006 I have either been pregnant, nursing or taking care of a toddler. This is glorious I do declare. Let's just hope I haven't spoke too soon...
