Some Days

Today is off to a rough start.

12:15AM Cambry is awake and fussing. I decide I am not going to feed her. She needs to learn to sleep. Greg and I take shifts going in there every so often to calm her down and try and get her back to sleep. She cries for over an hour. I am wide awake and cannot sleep so I eat cereal and read. At 2:15AM I am finally tired.

Cambry wakes up at 6:20AM. We have fun playing. I try to put her down a little after 8 because that is what worked yesterday. Hahaha, I am so silly. Of course that is not going to work today. Throwing a fit, in an out of crib, don't know what to do. Teething? Cuddling? Rocking? More playing? Lay down and nap together? Tried it all. 2 hours later and she is finally asleep. Whoa.

I need wisdom as a mother every day but I especially feel that deep need on days like today. I am thankful that God allows us to bring everything to Him in prayer. And I am thankful that He is all wise and I can seek Him and ask for wisdom.

Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
I have understanding and power. 
Proverbs 8:14

I am showered, dressed, have had coffee and we are going to get out of the house when she wakes up and go to the Galleria. Stroller + indoors + things to look at + baby play area = happy baby and happy mama.

Things are looking better.

I feel your pain!! FYI I know several babies that were good sleepers then at about 8 months they weren't. Some drs. Said separation anxiety. Look it up in that baby 411 book I think it addresses that in there.
