It's Okay.

After two ear infections and growing 4 teeth, A's schedule is messed up to say the least. Our baby that slept through the night at 5 weeks, was waking up after half an hour in her crib and even when putting her in bed with us, she tossed and turned ALL night and woke up every 1-2 hours.

So we went to the doctors. He checked her ears. Said that her ears looked great, and that it takes a while after being sick to get back into a sleep schedule. At least 2 weeks. 

Okay. Well that began operation "get A to sleep in her crib, all night, again."
It was hard. We are not a "cry it out" household. I just can't do that. 

So I can say that the last few nights, she's slept 5 hours, in her crib.
After that she sleeps in our bed. 
So she's not back to where she was, but it takes time.

It's okay that she only sleeps 5 hours in her crib. 
It's okay that she sleeps with us after that because, I usually end up falling asleep trying to get her to sleep. 
It's okay that we don't CIO at our house. 
It's okay that this might take a while to get her back to her old schedule. 

As for me,

It's okay that I'm skipping working out (again) this morning, so I can catch up on blogs and post something.
It's okay that I've slipped up the last month and had a couple sodas. 
Which reminds me, I do not like soda anymore. YUCK!
It's okay that I agreed to start watching the "demon child" again, even though I'm not sure that I like her.
It's okay that I only agreed to do it because, I didn't know how to tell her mom no.

It's all okay. 

I'm planning A's first birthday. That is not okay. She cannot grow up that fast. It's too fast
Someone, PLEASE make it STOP!

I have done things before that I didn't want to do because I didn't know how to say no. It's horrible!! I'm finally getting better at standing up for myself but sometimes it's hard!

It's absolutely okay! You have to so what keeps you sane. I'm a little jealous... my first didn't sleep through until 15 months... he's 9... I'm still not over the jealousy when I hear parents have babies who sleep!
