Happenings in Our House

We did it, we arranged a dayhome, Cade will be there I'm at work. I was approved for part time work! We saw 5 different places and spoke to about 8 million providers. It was such a stressful process, but we think we found someone that we can feel relatively comfortable with. I say "relative" because we won't feel completely comfortable with anyone but ourselves! Tyler would ultimately like me to stay home, so we are hoping for a big raise for him and for our new home business to bring in the big bucks. So heres to "what ifs".

Tomorrow is New Years Eve. We haven't ever been big New Years people. Tyler often has to work and I have passed the age of hanging out in a bar, slurring my words and desperately looking for a cab ride home. Nevermind that cute little person sleeping in the next room. This year Tyler has the night off but he works the next morning, so we are going to have a nice meal after Cade hits the sack. I should be slumbering by 9:30 p.m., like a good mommy.

Speaking of the sack-we are working on the sleep issue. I bought a book that encourages a middle of the road approach which is laboursome to say the least. Its basically pick up/put down, over and over again. I had to modify the approach because Cade became not only upset but hysterical to the point of hyperventilation. That said, after a total of three hours over the course of last night, he slept in his crib. I had the bed to myself (Tyler at work)! No kicking, hair pulling or flailing about. I'm hoping tonight goes a bit better, because its amazing what 4 or 5 hours of consecutive sleep can do for a person. Cross your fingers for me.

I'm glad to hear you found the dayhome!

Good Luck on the sleep issue...I've read and experienced that usually it takes about 3 days or nights to break a habit. I'll be crossing my fingers for you....Can you cross yours for me on breaking the bottle habit with naps and bed? Thanks! Lol!

He is growing up so fast! I bet him and Harry can play together now!

Good luck with the sleep. I am no expert (I suffered for 9 months with being awake every two hours and then 6 more months of every four hours.) Harrison is just now sleeping throught the night and he is almost 18 months. I wish I knew what the 'right' thing to do is re: sleep.
