Sleepless in Maryland

So I know it's been a long time since I've posted any updates. Can I blame pure exhaustion and living in a dream state for the past month. Jack was sick several weeks ago. He came down with his first virus which then turned into an ear infection. Prior to this we had started sleep training. Now let me just preface that Jack has never been a sleeper. So this whole training stuff is not his cup of tea.

When he came down with this virus I had to let him sleep in our bed again. If I put him in his crib he would cry and then begin to cough, and then more and more phlegm would! So, once he recovered it was back to training camp. We are a good week in and the boy has not let up. I just love all the books and stories of people who let their kids cry for a couple of nights and then it was silent nights from the 4th night on. We have to be on night 7 and Jack cried for a good hour and a half last night. I hate it. He gets so pissed. The minute I walk in to calm him down he stops crying, and the second I walk out he starts in again.

So if you see some story on the news about a babbling women found walking down the streets in her's a good chance it's yours truly. I've gone from Norstroms fashion to Old Navy pajama pants, from highlighted hair to rat nest hair, and from cute red painted toes to ....I won't say. How do you get too mad though at a face like this. You have to love them.
