sleep training

all the books rant and rave about how your baby will sleep through the night around 3 months. (that's also when morning sickness ends....obviously still slightly bitter over that one). well around 3 months is when the sleep in our house went to pot. Not that it was great before that either.

sleep has come to a screeching halt this last week when my dear boy was up every 2 to 3 hours. so last night, i got our the ear plugs. he woke up 2.5 hours after he went to bed. knowing he is not hungry, i let him 'figure it out'

45 minutes later he was still trying to figure it out.

it took 52 minutes.

mike got up and went on a run, it was 11:00 at night

Here is how last night went:

7:30- lacey in bed...she missed her nap so early bedtime.
8:00 put miles to bed. lacey still up
8:30 lacey finally asleep
10:00 I go to bed
10:53 miles up crying
11:25 miles still crying, mike goes on a run
11:45 miles falls asleep
1:11 miles up. eats, doesn't even finish bottle before falling asleep
2:23 Lacey crying...i thought it was miles. only lasts about a minute. then i realize it was lacey so i go in and give her her teddy bear and cover her up.
4:04 miles up. peed through everything so i change his entire outfit while he screams his head off. feed him.
8:15 wake Lacey up
8:30 Miles up.

at least they slept in.
