12 months.

How did this happen Miss A?
How are you a year old?

At 1 years old, you are 22 lbs 13 oz, 30 3/4 in long, your head is: (I'll fill this in later) around.
You wear 18 month clothes, size 3 shoes, size 3 diapers.



You are an amazing little girl.
 Your personality is amazing.


 I love you more than anything. 

You have 6 teeth, 4 on top 2 on bottom. 


You still nurse & eat regular food. You don't sleep through the night again, yet. We're working on it, and your doctor said it could take quite a while. 

You wore your first set of pig tails.


You stand, walk around everything, try and climb. You love to play in the kennel at Grandma's house.


 You love to color, play with stickers and balls. 

You still love Tangled & Blue's Clues, we tried out Rio & you like that too. You cook & love to put things between your toes!


You love to read. You still only say  "da-da", and something that sounds like "don't". You love to clean up. You also love to play in the toilet paper.


You got your birthday pictures taken a couple days before you turned 1. I can't wait to print them off  bigger & put them up in your room. You go to church, but  would much rather crawl around the empty classrooms.

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!

Sleep.

So like I posted here Aslept in her crib for the very first time and it went amazingly!
Gold Star for A & I, me for not freaking out.

 Well last night was her second night, down at 9:30, well in her crib at 9:30 she was asleep probably 45 mins before that, she was put in her crib at 9:30 and up at 4:30. Well I'm having a dilemma.

 If A sleeps in her room then I haven't yet been able to sleep more than a few hours, because I'm afraid I'll miss something. BUT if she sleeps in our bed I wake up in more pain than I usually do because I don't have much space to move around in. She needs to sleep in her bed eventually, I know this and I'm sure sooner is better than later. I'm so torn! 


I need sleep, this mom doesn't function too well without sleep. Its possible but the day seems to drag. I'm not sure what to do!
