Sleep Sweet Sleep

As you know Jimmie has developed some major sleep issues this past year. Rachael and Justin really wanted him to sleep in his crib, but that had become impossible. Jimmie would scream for hours on end, puke all over himself on purpose etc... He has been sleeping in the big bed with mommy and daddy for a few months now.

However Rachael in her characteristic determination decided that this could be fixed! After much research she came across this book:

Rachael has read this extensively and done everything recommended. She is still in the early stages of what is called "Sleep Training" with Jimmie, but so far it has been a HUGE success. The past 5 nights Jimmie has slept 11 to 12 hours a night in his crib in his OWN room with little issues compared to what used to happen. Rachael and Justin are thrilled about this!

So now not only are Rachael and Justin "Dog Whisperers" they are also "Baby Whisperers". (-:

Can you believe that Jimmie will turn 2 years old in 3 days?? The big celebration will be at the end of May when his adjusted age is 2 and cold and flu season is over. We will do something small this weekend though.

Go Jimmie go! (-:



  1. Way to go Jimmie (and Rachael and Justin)! Good sleep makes such a difference in life. I guess bad sleep does too. Here's to good rest!

  2. YAY for good sleep!!! We're so happy for you guys! Enjoy the rest.

    Happy birthday to Jimmie this week! WOO HOO!!! What a big boy!!

    Lots of love to you all,
    Adrian and Janelle
