Well …

Last night I let Xander cry and gave up after two hours of him crying and me checking on him every 20 minutes. Finally at 1am I nursed him again and he fell asleep and I put him in his carseat and he stayed asleep until 4am. Then at 4 I nursed him and put him in his crib and he stayed asleep until 6am. I then nursed him and pulled him into bed with me because Alan had gotten up and was getting ready for work. We slept until 11am. We then took a nap from 1-3pm. It’s now 12:28am and he’s in his crib crying. *sigh* This is so insane … why won’t this kid SLEEP on his OWN. I’m trying, and totally failing here …

Baby Cries

I guess since I don’t have my “Baby Log” setup right now I will put this post in here. CIO day two … I hate CIO (Crying It Out) but this little dude needs to SLEEP and so does his Mommy and Daddy. So, CIO it is … He started at 7:30 with a round of nursing and then I layed him down and he started crying of course. So, I patted him a little and left him. I have been checking on him every 20 minutes and we did another round of nursing about 10 minutes ago and he’s STILL crying. He quieted down for a couple minutes but now he’s crying again. He isn’t “screaming” anymore (well, a couple times he will) so I guess that’s a good sign. I’ve been through everything else with him, so CIO has been my last resort (well, short of side-caring the crib which is something I am trying not to have to do). Well, anyway … he’s still at it and it’s now 9:30pm. *sigh* My poor little man … Anyone have any more advice for me? I can only imagine what he’s thinking …

Just Getting Back on Track

Well, WP is installed … and with a customized theme by me even … but right now there are some glitches (of course) so hopefully I will work them out soon. Still waiting for my old hosting company to move all my stuff back onto the servers. Darn fools.
