so last night was our second night in the letting her cry it out experiment. It was a disaster. Around 12:30 am, Ada woke up, and we of course, let her cry. And she cried and cried and cried. So much so that I was beginning to cry a little myself. It was just the worst feeling to hear her cry so hard and not go in there and comfort her. I hated it. And this time she was crying much harder and louder. Plus, she cried for almost an hour and a half. At this point, the crying was not letting up, so I finally went in there. She took some of her bottle but not much. I put her back down, and she woke up twice more. Finally, after rocking her a little bit, we all went to bed for the night at 2:30 am. Not a good night!! Scott and I are both very tired today, and I am unsure about what to do. I need some feedback. Is there a time limit on the crying it out, or should I not have gone in there when I did? I was just so exhausted--and heartbroken--after an hour and a half.
On a happier note, Scott and I were inspired by the Slagley blog, to gather up all of our loose change and take it to the coin machine at Publix. We thought it would only be like 5-10 dollars total, but hey, that would pay for several happy hour diet cokes. It turned out that all of those pennies added up to 30.00, so we are going out for an unexpected Mexican dinner. Yea!! And thanks for the suggestion, Slagleys!!
