Loud Screaming Baby...

is in his crib right now. Dr. Ferber says to let him sit in there and cry till he goes to sleep. Go check in on him 5 min then 10, 15, 30 etc. He said that when you go in they will go crazier. Wasn't that the truth! So he got ummmmmm a couple decibels louder. Ira is upset since he really doesn't like to let the little beast cry. I don't know what else to do though. Can't sleep in our bed, already fell off. Can't sleep on the air bed now since he goes cruising in the middle of the night. Heaven only knows what hurt could be inflicted upon him then!

He is quiet right now. It has been 15 minutes of screaming. Ira is watching Ultimate Fighter in the other room. I am afraid to go look and see in fear I wake him up like I did last night! Whoops!

So we painted the primer in the kitchen today. More of a frustrating kind of day that I had planned. BUT the primer is all finished!!! Now I have to make up my mind on the colors and get cracking on the painting!

Good for you for being the voice of logic when it comes to agriculture ethical issues, lol! I totally supported your post 1000%. Oh, and hang in there with le bebe, I'm sure what you're trying to do will work if you don't back down! (not that I really know, but it seems like that's what's supposed to happen.) I'm taking notes for when I have a small-fry of my own someday. ;)

It does work eventually, my sis had one that screamed for 4 hours, but the time was less and less each time. I started this at 2 months as I couldn't function and it is fabulous when the job is accomplished, hang in there!

Yes, stick with it! With Maddie it was hard, but we had to put ear plugs in at one point! As long as they are "fine" leave them alone! Now our problem is that the girls shre a room...it's a NIGHTMARE when trying to get them to take a nap or to bed...sometimes it takes 2 hours!!!! ARGH!!!! Hang in there!

For a second there I thought you had used the same headline for Ira and his fun adventure this week. =) Looking forward to reading all about it?!?

You can do it Janell, you and Ira are some of the strongest most compassionate parents I know. It only lasts for a little while, and then he'll be used to it!
