Here is what is going on in our house right now...
John has not had a quality nap all day long. I am a big believer in babies' needing good, quality sleep. John sleeps on his stomach, which I have never mentioned on the blog because of its controversial nature. I know what the doctors say, but I also know what so many moms say, and the result--John sleeps on his stomach, and he has loved this until now. Now, he is flipping to his back, every single time we put him down. Normally, I go upstairs and flip him back over, but that is not working today, so now I am letting him "cry it out" on his back. He is so mad. So, so mad, and it is against my nature as a mom to listen to him cry without doing anything about it. I hate it. But I also know that he really needs to sleep. I think eventually he will sleep. I think.
So, I blog, just to get my mind on something else.
By the way, he might have had a quality nap this morning while I was showering, but I turned the shower off only to hear both of my children crying very hard. I found Ada in the pack-n-play with John. When I got in the shower, Ada was playing downstairs, and John was sound asleep upstairs in the master bedroom closet. After my shower--the closet light was on, Ada was in the pack-n-play with John, and both children were crying very hard. I think Ada was crying because she couldn't get out of the pack-n-play and she realized that she probably shouldn't have gotten in there in the first place. I was so frustrated, to say the least.
Anyway...he is still crying. I hate this.
Update: John is asleep!!! And he only cried for maybe 15 minutes.
