Rock-a-Bye-Bye Baby, Night #2

Don't know what this is all about? Read this first.

Night #2 went really well! Here's how it went down:

Lights off, then I rocked her for 5 minutes and put her down.
Gave her a backrub for 5 minutes but she squirmed herself back awake and wanted me to get her.
I rocked her for another 10 minutes as it was a little more difficult to get her to settle down, but then I put her back in her crib.
Rubbed her back for another 5 minutes, and then - wouldn't ya know - she fell asleep!

It took 25 minutes to get her down from lights out, and I only had to rock her twice. It's been over an hour and she's still soundly snoozing. Tonight could have been a fluke so I'm by no means suggesting she's actually adjusting at this rate. But it sure was nice to get her down in almost half the time as last night! I'm looking forward to this process (for now, anyway).
