Yesterday

Yesterday was a good day....I got to go to my Motherwise Bible Study and eat fruit salad. It was so delicious with all the blueberries and strawberries. You know, blueberries are just something I can't get enough of...so sad they're so durned expensive. I think I'm going to get to go blueberry picking soon though so that will be great. Then I can freeze them and have them all winter in my waffles and muffins.
Brady is doing good in every aspect except sleep. Ever since we've gotten back from North Carolina he doesn't fall asleep at his normal time and he's been waking us up at 5:30 am! It doesn't matter if he goes to bed at 6, 7, or 8 he always gets up at the same time. I haven't been giving him sugar or caffeine so I'm not sure what it is. Plus, usually when we put him in his crib he lays down and falls asleep. Well, for some reason its been taking him about an hour or so to fall asleep, even if he's exhausted. All I know is that I hope this cycle is over soon because Zac and I are getting very tired...I can't fully relax until Brayden is asleep so that doesn't leave a lot of "thought free" moments in the evenings.
He's still doing great at using the potty but he doesn't get how to tell me that I need to take him there. Hmmmm.....

What do you feel about letting Brayden whimper or cry when he wakes up at 5:30? After a while then he will know that he does not dictate the time he wakes up, but you do. Actually, I don't know much (anything) about how to train a child over one.....this is more of a question than a suggestion.

I let him SCREAM for 30 minutes.

Oh, you poor dear. All me babies are grown yet I remember well the type of times like waht you are going through...and yes, it too shall pass. Hang in there! Maybe if Brayden has an indestructible book or toy he loves in the bed when he wakes up to entertain himself with that will help pacify him until a later morning hour???? I hope he gets back to resting well soon. And that's great how he is training...YIPPEE BRADY BOY!!

Hi Alyssa,

The sleep thing is so hard when you are expecting - hoping it gets better soon :)

I am going blueberry and raspberry picking this week - I will be sure to eat a few extra for you. They are SO yummy - I agree.

Love your blog!
