When Emily was a newborn, we dreamed of the night she would sleep all night! So, we devised an idea that we would have a party when she did! This birthed a family tradition which was continued this weekend for Rachel! She slept through the night on Friday night and Saturday we had her party!

We crowned her the Princess of Sleepyland using the same crown I had made for Emily! It has moons and stars colored on a piece of cardstock stapled together. (Put a piece of tape over the staple to protect the princess's head!)

We ate moon and star shaped sandwiches!

And, we listened to lullaby music while reading The Sleep Book by Dr. Seuss!

Yeah, Rachel!

I remember when Bennett started sleeping through the night. We got so excited. It ended up only lasting a week though. Ha Ha! He started right back into his waking up during the night pattern again. That went on for several weeks and then he finally started sleeing through the night.

Your daughter is precious!

I have started a new blog with a different host. Here is my new link.

It is still called Faith Walk so you can just change the link in your blogroll list.
