Tough Love

Brody went to the doctor yesterday, and while we were there Brad asked him when would be a good time to start letting him cry through the night. The dr. said now is a good time. So Brad said that that night I couldn't go get him when he started crying and that I had to let him cry. I wasn't sure if I was ready for that yet. I look foward to my little guy wanting me in the night, we party :) So during the day brad kept teasing him and I saying stuff like" You in for it tonight Brody" and if he would fuss he would say " you're just warming up for tonight" Finally at night we fell asleep and then baby started crying at 1:46 and didn't stop till 4:03!!!! the whole time while Brad was fast asleep snoring, I was biting my nails, shaking my leg, twirling my hair and tossing and turning!! I couldn't take it that my baby was soooo upset I wanted to run in and tell him "I'm here!!" I went in to check on him and he was kicking so hard that he scooted himself over one foot up in the crib and his sheets were all wrapped under him :( Even after he fell asleep I still couldn't sleep cause I felt bad. When he woke up at seven I ran in there and was so happy to get him, but he didn't look at me when he ate, so I think he was mad at me, even though it was his dad's idea. So we'll see what happens tonight again and how long it'll take this time.

I just kept saying "ohh" and the "ohs" grew louder and full of more sorrow with each line. Yvette, you're a champ...I'm sure it was just as much torture for you guys! I really think it's awesome you're trying to get him to sleep through the night though! But we need an update...how did he do last night?

PS I think it's hilarious that BRAD suggested you have him cry because, I love you Bubbas, but you're one of the soundest sleepers ever...how convenient;)
