Thanks moms for all your help!

After all the feedback, praying, talking it over with Kraig, research....we may have come up with some things to try in order to get Rett to the crib.

First, let me say that all babies are different.  haha Who knew!  Schedules are important...and we have a pretty good schedule - not real strict but we have one that works for us.  But now we are going to be stricter especially at bed time.

But I am doing some trial and error things and trying to get him moved.  So, first we are doing the cry-it-out method for naps but really I'm just letting him get tired and then letting fall asleep where ever he is....I know that's not the correct way of doing it and we don't last long but I give it a try at least once a day....

I am not a huge fan of the cry-it-out method but I am willing to give it a try.  So, I am for naps.

And let's see what else we are trying...we are doing a more strict regime at bedtime....trying new baby foods, bathtime because …



I need advice from all those blogger/facebook moms.

I am ready (sort of ready) to move Rett to his crib in his room however he still wakes up throughout the night to eat/play or look at the ceiling.  I don't know why he wakes up so much but he does.  He is just a restless sleeper,  he hates to be swaddled so that didn't last long.  So, I started putting him on his belly, he would roll over in the middle of the night and kick himself awake, wanting to play.  Then, he got sick so we are putting him in his swing so he can breath but he still wakes up periodically through the night.

Before he got sick this week, he was eating food twice a day and I thought that would help him sleep better at night but it didn't work.  He is still nursing 4 or 5 times during the day.  We tried rice cereal but he didn't like it.  I don't know.  Maybe I'm reading to much into this but from what I have read, I think he should be able to sleep 6-8 hours straight.  He wakes up …

New Year, New Beginnings!

I can honestly say that 2012 was probably one of the most trying and yet most wonderful years thus far.

This however was the biggest blessing of the year

And to think I was ok with not ever having a kid - I can't imagine our life without him now.  He's just a pure blessing and we are so humbled that we are chosen to be his parents.  We are beyond excited to teach him and watch him grow.

We have also made some more decisions regarding 2013!  We have a lot of personal goals that we would like to see come together but I guess out biggest challenge will be the way we eat.  I have been watching some documentaries on Netflix.... BAD!  And talked with others and have decided for our health and for Rett's we want to ween ourselves off of processed foods.  This is going to be supper hard.  Mainly because I'm not a chef by any means so I have to learn to really cook.  We also got a NutriBullet (similar to the MagicBullet) for Christmas to help in this process.  So, I went to the…
