The Light at the End of the Tunnel??

It's probably just a one-off, but we're optimists - Lara slept through the night last night! From being put to bed at around 7.45 we didn't need to go into her room until 6.10 this morning. She did stir several times, she normally needs some attention between 10pm and 11pm, and indeed just as we turned our light out just after 11, she woke and whinged for a few seconds, but then all went quiet again. There was something similar in the around 3.40, which is another favourite time for her to need some soothing, and indeed Olga got up, ready for action, but again, it went quiet after a few seconds. Even when Olga did bring her to bed for her breakfast at 6.15, they stayed in bed until 8am. Now, we know not to expect this to happen every night, but the fact it's happened once means it can happen again. We just need to find out what we did yesterday that was different to other days, and try that thing again.
She did have a lot to eat during the day, or at least more than she's usually been having for the past 6 weeks or so, as her appetite returns after being ill, so we think that may have contributed to a good night's sleep (for everyone!).
She had a good breakfast again this morning of porridge, yoghurt and a biscuit, in her Texas Longhorns tracksuit, and seemed just like her old cheerful self when I left for work.
