Lil Mans Debut

Anyone that knows me knows that i am all about encouraging not only my kids, but all kids to be the best they can be. I love when my kids have a passion for things. over the last year David has shown a new passion for making toy reviews on YouTube. I let him do reviews about any toy he wants,sometimes the toys  make it home in the package so he can do a review & sometimes his excitement gets the best of him and he opens his new toy in the car. Please help me encourage his new passion by subscribing and liking his videos. There are a few videos of him just being a kid on there too... Have a great weekend!!!

4Moms Good Night Sleep Trainer Day 1

I figured since my Lil man is 17 1/2 weeks old and STILL not sleeping through the night I would give the Good Night Sleep Trainer that I won on the 4Moms site a try. I never in a million year thought I would ever have to use this because my daughters were sleeping through the night by 2-3 months with no help from a gadget. at this point I am beyond exhausted and napping so much during the day I don't get anything done.
The Good Night Sleep Trainer is suppose to train your 4 month old to sleep through the night by gradually increasing the time to check in on them while they are crying. It is "training them to calm themselves" I hope this works.

So here it goes Day 1:
I failed!!!!! I was OK with the 1 minute timer almost lost it when it went to 3minutes and finally gave in and went in early when it hit the 5minute mark. My Lil man is used to getting what ever he wants but please OH please whatever you do DON'T make him mad... He is a screamer!!!!! I calmed him the first time by giving him his Binkie, he was good for about 10 minutes....the second time I went in after 3 minutes and gave him his Binkie and patted his butt ( he loves this)... he only lasted about 3minutes this time before he started to cry. after about 2 minutes of him crying I couldn't take it anymore I had to go in and pick him up... I've never heard him cry like that!!! I think he was pretty upset that I left him for so long. I rocked him a little and when he was almost asleep I put him back down. He fell asleep for about 15 minutes then I tried the timer again 1 minute OK 3 minutes fine, 5 minutes no way still couldn't do it, I had to pick him up, good news is I didn't have to hold him as long to calm him down and I put him back to bed when his eyes started to droop. He opened them wide the minute I laid him down, but soon fell asleep on his own. According to the timer he has been asleep for 1 hour and 3 minutes. he normally wakes every 2-3 hours...... Wish me luck

storming in December?

Yep that's right its storming in December. There was snow on the ground when I went to bed last night. Now its just puddles. I love Illinois weather cause one never knows what they're going to wake up to. It can be a pain sometimes when trying to make plans, but this morning its not a pain at all. I think its going to be a good day & a good end of the year. Happy New Year everyone. I hope the new year brings lots of smiles to you and your families.

Big Congrats

I want to give a big CONGRATS to my wonderful nephew Tyler. He got up early and went to the DMV to get his license. Instructor said he did great.
Also Tyler has been working extremely hard on earning his Eagle rank in Boy Scouts. He went in front of the Board tonight and was promoted to Eagle. I am so very proud of him. I am told this is the hardest rank to achieve. Most boys have to redo a lot of things, but not Tyler he folowed everything to a T. Great Job Tyler!!!!!!
