Sleepy Time Follow-Up

Saturday night Baby G did not sleep like Friday nights wonderful sleep. In fact she hardly slept at all. When she did sleep she was so restless that it wasn't like real sleep at all. I got about 2 complete hours Saturday night. The problem we realized was that it got chilly. We have crazy weather and it had gotten hot for April reaching the 90's. But then we went to unseasonably cool weather in the 60s, and dipping into the 40s at night. I had turned off the heater and didn't think about turning it back on so poor Baby G was cold. The heater is back on now. Last night we had a freeze warning. Crazy weather.
We decided it would be best to keep her home Sunday morning so she could take her morning nap and I stayed home with her. Hubby took the other kids to church with him. Baby G fell asleep around 10:30 and took a 2 1/2 hour nap! I am so glad I didn't try to convince a tired 16 month old to sit through a church service.
Sunday night we were on our back to maybe sleeping through the night. She woke up at 4 hour intervals. Yeah! Maybe, just maybe Baby G will be able to sleep through the night by the time she reaches 18 months on May 21st? Here's praying.
She is 17 months old today. I have a month to work with her. She has been the hardest baby so far. All the others were sleeping 10 to 12 hours solid every night by 4 to 6 months. I have my work cut out for me.
