Sleep training part 4b

RaeAnne woke up at 4am last night, maid managed to pat her back to sleep. I was woken up at 6am by hubby who was getting ready for work. Was trying to fall asleep again when RaeAnne woke up with a cry. Went over to see her since I'm awake anyway. Tried to soothe her back to sleep but she can 'sense' the activity in the house and was distracted. Hubby helped make milk and she drank only about 100ml. Kept calling Dadee Dadee when I was in the room with her so no choice but to bring her out and let her say goodbye to her Daddy. Keep pasing her toys one by one for Filamie to wipe. Asked Filamie to stop wiping for the moment. Brought her back to her room again and she finally fell asleep around 745am. Had to wake her again at 835am so that she won't be late for school. :P

P.S. Last night, when I was holding the milk bottle and waiting in her room to feed her milk. She was trailing behind and saying good night (night) to Filamie. Hubby told her Mummy waiting for you leh and she walked towards our MBR. Felt a twinge of heartache then cos we used to always feed her the last milk feed on our bed then let her flip around until she falls asleep then bring her to the cot. Now, the bedtime routine starts in her own room. I do miss gazing on her sleeping face and touching her when she is asleep on our bed. Wondered if I was short changing her then, cutting down on her quality time with Mummy and Daddy because of Mei Mei. Got to keep reminding myself that Mei Mei even more poor thing, born into this world to share our love whereas RaeAnne already had almost 2 years of undivided love and attention from all of us. :P
