Since my last blog little Miss Hayden can now sleep on her own! Not too much of a fuzz is put up for naptimes or nigh, night time! Even though some nights were very hard for Oscar & once he went in and got her. He loves her so much! I love that about him... he doesn't like to see his babies hurt!

To Rock or to Cry?

I've have spoiled my baby girl Hayden! When my son Hyrum was a month old he would fall asleep all by himself in his crib. I was/am very proud of that! However I have been a slacker or just can't bare to hear my baby girl cry bloody murder!

Well Hayden is now almost 6 months old and it's got to stop! I was finding it easier to rocker her to sleep ( however it had to be w/ her head to the left and a blanket over her head, mostly to block out any distractions, ie HYRUM!) It was/is easier as she falls asleep very fast, then about 15 minutes after that I'd put her in her crib and she'd stay asleep (at night).

Well as I said before the time has come and I as well as my husband need more alone time... as it's once in a blue moon we actually get to talk before we sleep, let alone anything else (read a book, what a movie... don't know what ya'll were thinking about! ;)) Anyway I am counting to night as a success!!!! I was tired, Oscar was at his weekly meeting at church, Hyrum didn't want to eat his dinner... (story of my life, for now!), Hayden wanted me to hold her non-stop, had dirty dishing to take care of and pick up toys in the LR... well I was needless to say, ready to call it quites!! So I put Hyrum to bed, brushed his teeth (in that order... not normal... I was frustrated however!) Tried to put Hayden to sleep the old way... she wasn't having it... so I told her (as if she can completely comprehend what I was telling her,) "Hayden, no more... it's night night time and your going to put yourself to sleep"- translated from Spanish (I tend to speak spanish to the kids when I get upset... more passionate or something!)

Well I washed the dishes, even the stove, pots and pans... about 20 mins later of crying on and off... asleep (by 9:30pm!) We're on the road to 8pm bedtime... Yeah!!! I am feeling better now... I know however if Oscar would have been here during the whole thing... he wouldn't have let 5 mins. go by... he's a more loving parent than I am I guess, or his baby girl melts his heart... we'll for for #2.

I was actually able to call my mom and talk to her for a few mins before Oscar got home! It's a GREAT NIGHT TO BE A MOMMY!!! SUCCESS!!!!
