So it was July 19th, around 4am, I just fed Avi and I'm changing her diaper and she starts to say, "bap-bap-bap". Er? Out of nowhere, she says her first "word" i.e. consonant sound that has no meaning. I remember the date and time because the date is her daddy's bday and the time is the usual time she's been waking up. We started sleep training her at 5 1/2 months. We did everything by the book. We let her cry it out and never went in until the 9 hour mark (7pm-4am=9hours). Unfortunately, it's apparent that Avi did not read this book because it took her 3 months to finally consistently not wake up sooner than 9 hours. Now that she finally figured it out (or so we think she has), she's old enough to sleep 12 hours without a feeding so we're thinking of sleep training this weekend! Yikes, for the first time in almost 9 months, I won't be waking up at night to feed her! I know I should be relieved but I feel torn!! My baby's growing up fast!
