Maybe it's just preparing me?
Over the last few days around here there has been LOTS of crying and little sleep. Why? We took away the bottle. We warned Kalena that when we came back after Thanksgiving that she wouldn't be getting a bottle anymore. You would think that two bottles a day wouldn't be such a hard habit to break. WRONG. She is fine when you go to put her down, right up until she realizes you're going to leave her in her crib with nothing but a stuffed tiger to comfort her. (Aren't we just cruel?) As hard as it is to listen to her cry, and as much of a pain as it is that it now takes her FOREVER to go to sleep, I'm not giving in. Actually, one of my BIG worries about this whole thing is that I will have this new baby before Kalena adjusts to not getting a bottle and then someone (BRIAN) will give her one while I'm in the hospital and I'll have to start all over later. Anyway, lots of crying and no sleep? I guess I should get used to that.
