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!

Its Ok Thursdays

Confused. The whole time we were TTC we were so confused as to what was going on. We didn't know what we were supposed to ask, supposed to be looking for. We did try charting for a bit though, and that was fun, getting up to check temps and what not. Glad that phase didn't last too long.

Crib & Contractions. I was so happy we found the crib set we did. I'll have to take pictures and post them of the nursery soon. I just have a few more things to do before it's presentable. I realized today that I've had contractions before the whole L&D event. I can't exactly remember when they started though, maybe a month before? Just a few weeks? But anyway I know they were there before just never thought anything of them, they weren't bad like they are now. Speaking of contractions I only have to take the pills for 3 more weeks.

Creative. I'd like to say my husband and I are pretty creative, when it comes to our imaginations. We can sit down and talk for hours about random stuff, and describe it in full detail. It's nice having someone to be like that with.
