One step backwards!

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!

Yes it does get frustrating when the doctors don't do anything for them if they have clear ears...and all else is well. I learned that with my first child. But he always had ear infections. Once he got tubes i learned there was just no point in taking him to the dr for just a runny nose and cough - as long as he was breathing fine. I guess because there really isn't anything they will give them for it - or can. With Lauren, she hasn't dealt with ear infections like Avery did. If she gets a runny nose or cough i just don't even take her. She has a cough right now. Just make sure Kennedy's doesn't turn into croup. We had that a few months back and it was NO good...scary.
I hope she starts feeling better soon and sleeps for you. I wish I could give you some advice on the sleeping - I just got lucky with having great sleepers.

I know how you feel about having a sick baby. Cale had that nasty cold a couple of weeks ago. Runny nose, bad cough, and he also had an ear infection. It was no fun!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog - I really enjoy reading yours. I found it through Hollie.
That's so encouraging to hear about your mom...what an accomplishment! Weight Watchers is definitely a great program. What your mom said is key though. You have to be ready mentally - that's the part that I just can't get. I've lost about 12 lbs and I need to lose 10 more, but it just seems like my determination has gone by the wayside. I've got to get back to being mentally ready to finish it off!
So sorry to hear about your sleeping problems. I hope your little one is feeling better, and that you start getting more sleep soon:)
