Good things are happening

I'm really sorry for my "downer" posts the past little while. I really shouldn't have blogged at 2:30 in the morning when I was so emotional and upset!

Okay, that's done. Now on to the latest!

We have been having a great time traveling this month. Philadelphia, then Vegas, and soon Cancun over Thanksgiving. We have so much to be grateful for and I think good things are in the present and ahead of us.

Not to be a broken record, but Noah is doing great now. The kid has just been hit by so much the past two months. Recovering from surgery, dealing with awful diaper rashes, many many sleepless nights, getting four teeth, and a cold are just a few little trials. The crazy thing to me is that most kids go through those things (minus surgery)! Kids go through a lot to grow up! (And first time mommies have an extremely steep learning curve...!).

After taking Noah to the doctor after two nights of absolutely no sleep, OF COURSE the answer was: "Well, it's a cold, and there's nothing you can do about it." Turns out it was mainly attributed to two more teeth coming in. Those darn teeth! But he also gave us the go-ahead to SLEEP TRAIN!!! I'll let you know how that goes. We will start after Halloween--we still need to get through the main chapters of this baby:

I can't wait to get on a set schedule and be more structured again. We're getting there slowly but surely... The good news is that two nights ago he only woke up once, last night he woke up twice, and today he went to bed at 8! Ever since those other two teeth broke through, he's been so happy and wonderful and nothing makes me more thrilled. We're being watched over and I know a lot of you have prayed for us and I couldn't be more grateful!

  1. Hey, did this book work for you? Noah's not the only one with sleep problems.
