Eliza Grace was born on March 15, 2006, at 26 weeks, 4 days, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and measuring just 11.5 inches long. She is the light of my soul and this is the story of our life in the big city.

Karma

On the twenty-third June 2011, Eliza finally slept through the night for the one hundredth night of her life.

This was 100 nights in the 1,927 she has been on this earth.

Eliza came home from the NICU on June 23, 2006.  So exactly 1,827 days since leaving the NICU. she finally made it to the night I have been looking forward to for 5 years.

I think it is a good karmic sign that this happened on the anniversary of her homecoming, don't you?

yay Eliza! Keep it up!

Awesome! Maybe that means the next five years will include a lot more sleep-through-the-night nights for both of you!

Hey - shoot me an email when you get a chance. We started Emery on some vitamins and he has now slept the night through for 8 solid days that we have been giving them.... and he's falling asleep within minutes of going to bed, no more jerking, no more kicking, no more waking and 3 a.m. party time.

And never mind about an utterly pointless suggestion if you can't get them into her. *headsmack* my bad.

That is so amazing! Lili still doesn't sleep through the night--I often am amazed actually, at how little sleep this child gets at all and am awed at her ability to function. She was a preemie but only 6 weeks (and after reading about the incredible fighters like Eliza, what seemed frightening to us at the time, I now realize is nothing compared to the fights so many of these sweet miracles fight.) From day one, her "witching hours" have been like clockwork--1:45, 2:45-3 ish, 4:40, 5:30 til awaking. Even a "good" night consists of the cry outs at 4:40 am and of course, naps? Forget it! Wishing you many nights of peaceful slumber...

Sarah: Do tell what vitamins you are using! Which vit(s) of the combo do you think may be helping? Or was it just a lucky discovery? My kind thinks Axid is "yummy" but that the really nice tasting omaga/DHA combo I tried to give her was "yucky," so there is no telling what she might like!

The omaga combo was all plant based and tasted like strawberry cream to me! She prefers the nasty fish-tasting ones!

"kid" not "kind". Maybe I was thinking in German although I really do not know German!

Wishing you many more sleepful nights. I do think there are some undocumented side effects of our kids being on caffiene when in NICU.
I catch Elizabeth reading her books at all hours of the night 3-4am usually is a good time for her to catch up on her reading.
