Ferber....night one

Ok, so all you Bloggers that put us in your prayers last is the low down.

Reid went to bed last night as usual...awake and happy around 7:30 pm. Around 1:15 am I heard him crying. I went in his room...gave him his blanket and laid him down (because of course, he was standing up looking for me). I put his music box thing-a-ma-gig on that he loves and walked out. Crying begins. One minute later...crying stops.

Ten minutes later...crying begins again. I walk in and proceed to re-do the same steps as before. Again, crying at first...done in about 30 seconds.

3:20 am....crying again. Repeat same steps as previous. Crying when I leave the room. Done in less than one minute. I was back to sleep each time easily and quickly. I slept in the guest room so I was close to him and did not have to walk the steps each time. (our bedroom is on the first floor...Reid's is upstairs) plus I wanted Brian to get as much rest as possible. Reid is happily singing in his bed now....and it is almost 8:00 am. Much better. I decided not to get up and shower early as I usually do. I slept as long as I could.....and it was FANTASTIC. We will continue tonight...and hopefully within the next few days...we will be in good shape. Thanks for the prayers....keep them coming. It's always nice to know you have a support group out there. More updates to come......

So sorry to hear that you aren't getting good rest on your break. Can I come over so you can take a nap? I can come and borrow your kiddo's for a little while. :) That little Reid, he just loves to keep everyone on their toes! You are such a sweetie also for thinking of Brian since he has to go to work.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Big Hugs!

Soulike a good start!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
