I honestly cant believe it's been a whole month since my last post.
I have been really busy and well, life just got in the way of this little hobby of mine.
Meanwhile Tealyn turned
And I just have to say first off that this past year just flew~~
I still remember that sweet moment at the hospital when I first laid my eyes on her.
A moment I will hold in my heart forever.
And, now here we are a year later.
Seems as though, It was just yesterday that I received the greatest, most wonderful
gift from God.
My sweet Tea
Getting though the night without waking up 3 sometimes 4 times is
I know this is only temporary, and one day I'll look back and laugh, but for now I'm tired and running on pure love.
she gets fed dinner at around 5.30 ish, she plays till she gets whiny, she then has a warm bath around 7ish with the calming lavender baby shampoo ( that by the way has not worked), she plays for another 30 minutes or so in the tub, take her out,
I make her a bottle 5, 6, heck sometimes 8 ounces with sometimes even rice.
by this time it's already 8ish.
She goes to bed fine till about 1 sometimes she makes it till 2 she wakes and wants a bottle, her pamper is wet , so I change it and I make her a 4 ounce bottle and bring her to my bed (because I am too exhausted to walk across the house every 2 hours) Only to wake up again at about 2.30 or 3.30. She starts squirming and making whiny noises, I ignore it for as long as I can, usually 10 minutes, I give her a pacifier and that works 2 seconds
I wake up and go get her another 2 ounces I have to warm it up and by this time the dog is tired of me turning on kitchen light and stops following me.
I give it to her, and like magic she goes down till 5.30, and if I am lucky 6
Now, If someone out there has a magical solution please let me know I am open to any ideas.
Now, I know I really should get her off the bottle and from what I know a year is the cut of time, but my pediatrician recommended the transition formula for a little longer, and I don't think she'd like that from a sippie cup in the middle of the night.
Someone told me It takes 3 days to break a cycle and just to prepare myself for an all nighter and lots of crying. I am just so exhausted I don't think I could get through it.
Sleepless in the Valley.
