Well, if you've been reading my blog then you know the ups and downs I'm going through being a new mom! Today, on Ruthie's 3 week birthday! we may have made a break through...I'm a little trepidatious at blogging this in fear I may "jinks" myself!
This morning as I noticed she was getting tired, I put her in her crib (with her paccy and her swaddle blanket) at 11:15. She was quiet for about 10 minutes and then erupted with crying. After about 5-7 minutes of crying I went in and reinserted the paccy and patted her tummy and stroked her forehead to calm her down (never picking her up!). I spoke words of love and clam to her and then walked out. She hasn't made a peep yet...and it's 12:!5!!!
Now I just have to keep this going and work on getting this to happen in the evening! :)
