Thank you all so much for your great advice about the sleeping issue! I really appreciate it!
Unfortunalely, I didn't get to try any of the methods that were suggested yet because Kennedy got sick. We've had revival this past week (which was absolutely amazing.) and some little kid had the viral plague and it spread through the nursery like wild fire. Let me tell you what I can't stand! I can't stand when I finally get Kennedy over a runny nose and I take her to the church nursery (which you think is the safest place to take a child and not to get sick, but let me tell you it's NOT!) and there's always the ONE baby that's sick!! ALWAYS! It never fails, when the wind blows my child is going to catch it! I promise we've been to the doctor 5 times in the past 2 months with colds and fever! This is what they told me to do this time.....because she didn't have a fever and her ears were clear (praise the Lord for that one.) we think it should run its course! In other words lets just make you and the baby suffer for the next week!! LOL!! Has anyone had a doctor tell them that? I know yall have but it's just annoying! I can't stand when my baby's sick! Mean while, she's got this terrible cough that sounds like a grown man hacking up a lung! (great description uh??!!)
So, lets just say that the sleeping issue has only worsened! We'll start(AGAIN) trying to get her out of that habbit when she gets better!!
Thanks again for all of your advice and encouragement. It's great to know they're other parents facing (or have faced) the same issues I am! It's reassuring! That's whats great about the blog world....I love it!
