It is an understatement to say that we are going through a rough patch with Ally at night. Sleeping has been so difficult. We took her binky away about 3 weeks ago and she is still having a really hard time. After many nights of major middle of the night tantrums we are doing the cry it out method. It seems weird to do this with a 3 year old. But it seems to be the only thing that is going to work. Last night was progress because she actually went to sleep without crying...actually gave me a kiss and a hug and laid in bed. Of course when I went to check on her I see her surrounded by books with the light on but hey, at least she was quiet and went to sleep! In the middle of the night she woke up twice and cried for about 15-20 minutes each time and then ended up falling asleep on the floor. Found her this morning on sleeping on the floor in front of her gate on her door. Hopefully she'll be sleeping through the night in her bed in a few nights!
