Parenting Is...

...wonderful.
...confusing.
...full of joy.
...scary.
...the best thing EVER!

{First teething biscuit - yum!}

Sometimes it's a crap shoot too! Trent has woken up crying 4 out of the last 5 nights. Not just a little crying - full-on hysterics. And he's not a crier. No clue what's going on. Is it his teeth (he's gotten 3 this month)? Is he not getting enough sleep during the day? Is it that he's so much more active now that he can crawl? Does he have gas? Does he not feel okay? WHO KNOWS! All I know is that I give him about 10 minutes to try and settle on his own and then go get him. It's taken anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to settle him. Heartbreaking! We're going out of town this weekend, and he'll be sleeping in his pack 'n play. To say I'm dreading more of these episodes is an understatement - especially while staying w/ family. Ha!

Wyatt has been off his sleeping schedule also this week. Just when you think you've got a good schedule - WHAMO, these boys throw us a curveball! Keeping my fingers crossed that he travels well for y'all this weeknd!

I so wish babies could talk...my husband will ask me all the time why Jordan is crying, like mind reading comes along with motherhood. I'm hoping Trent moves out of this phase quickly!
