|Abby and her flatish head.|
Abby also got 4 shots today, so she isn't very happy. In fact, she is snoring away as I type. Should I be cleaning the house while she sleeps? Yes I should. Because when she wakes up, I'm sure she'll want snuggles. But really, blogging is so much more fun.
So lately, baby girl has been waking up at night. She'll either wake up as soon as we put her in bed or she'll wake up between 2 and 5. I usually feed her and put her back to sleep. Well guess what? My doctor said to leave her crying!! I knew this would be coming, and I knew that is what I should have probably been doing all along, but it's just so hard for me. My mind starts to wonder: is my child going to cry herself to death? I also worry that she's hungry/uncomfortable/that she'll scratch her eyes out. (one time I let her cry for 20 min before I caved and got her and her nose had all sorts of scratches. Silly girl) But her doctor said to not feed her and let her cry it out or it will start her in a bad habit and always need to eat that time of night. Don't want that! So now we get to play the lay-in-bed-not-getting-any-sleep-ourselves-game as Abby cries herself back to sleep. Oh the joys of parenthood.
She also has a pretty bad diaper rash right now. What with the shots, runny nose, diaper rash, and flatish head, no wonder why she is so cranky at night. That and Dr. Fox says she is probably teething. But she is a very healthy baby other than that.
Lastly, check out this super cool family. Someday, Sam and I will be just as cool in our Swagger Wagon.
