Sleeping, sorta

Kara hasn't been a good sleeper since around 3 months after she was born. Waking up lots, wanting to nurse all the time, needed to be rocked or have her back rubbed to fall asleep. The past week and a bit has seen an improvement. Kara is now able to fall asleep by herself! We put both Chloe and Kara to bed at 8pm. I rub Kara's back for 2 or 3 minutes to let her know that its bed time, then say "Good night Kara" and leave their room. Only once in the last 2 weeks have I had to go back in and help her fall asleep. She is also staying asleep until around 1 am (as opposed to 10pm), and if I go in and give her a soother, she often falls back asleep until around 3am, when she wants to nurse. After this still isn't going well, with her often waking again around 5, and 6, before getting up for good around 7. So I'm not getting a lot more sleep, but its still progress, and it makes me happy :D
