Christmas is almost here!

Christmas is almost here! I am off until Thursday and I'm soo happy to be spending this time with my family.

Kristian received some gifts from daycare Friday. A picture of him in a frame and some goodies from his friends.

It's only been 2 days into the holiday and our schedule is already out the window. Up late and sleeping in!

Lots of fun to come the next couple days!

And great news, my grandmother is doing much much better! Thank you for your prayers. She has some recovery but she is on her way and is almost back to her normal self!

Hope you all have a great Christmas!!

A week of ups and downs!

Whoa! This week was all over the place ! Tuesday I started a new job (well new dept in a place I worked at before) everyone there was soo happy to see me and it really felt nice that after a year and a half they were glad I was back!

Although I haven't been feeling myself! I've been sick with a cold/cough for the week! And so has baby K. Baby K had a fever of 39.5 today so we stayed home (insert stress here too for calling in sick to a new job) we both are on antibiotics and hopefully back to ourselves soon!

Yesterday we also had a big scare with my grandmother! She's 81 and last month she had a bad fall and hit her head. Since then she kept falling and was becoming weaker and weaker and unable to walk. My mom and aunt took her to the hospital and they did an emergency brain procedure on her because she had a blood clot of 3cm from the falls! We were terrified!!!! I went last night to hospital with my sister and cousins and the doctor explained the procedure to us. We felt better knowing exactly what they were going to do. The procedure was short and she is awake and talking today. We still don't know much details but we know she is doing well right now.

I'm exhausted! Life right now feels like a big mess and I'm really hoping things turn around soon!!

We are praying my grandmother is out for Christmas. And praying we are all healthy and can enjoy the holidays all together!!

With all this craziness happening. I am not done my Christmas shopping!

Hey Santa!

Yesterday we took little K to see Santa! We drove to a city just north of us to see him.

When he went on Santa's lap he was in shock haha! He didn't cry, but didn't smile either! He looked all around and wasn't to sure about it haha

Here's his first Santa pic.

12.12.12 our day

Last night I had 1 stretch of a 2 hour sleep so together I guess that adds up to the whole 12.12.12 day ha!

We had a horrible night!!!!
We tried the CIO method again and I did not feel good about it today at all!

Even baby K ended sleeping a 4 hour nap at daycare because he was exhausted!

I decided to scrap that method for now. I can't do it. My little one looking at me soo sad and today I was soo tired and our whole family was soo miserable.

So tonight I went with our other approach for now. We'll figure the rest out somehow.

Bath, book, cuddles and sleep.

Much calmer evening here. Just love cuddling my little boy.

Sleep training ups and downs

I was never one that thought I would do the CIO (cry it out method) I was totally against it the first year. I hear many moms that have done it and it has worked and also many that haven't and their kids sleep just fine.

My little one was never the good sleeper. From birth he would nurse every 2-4 hours and 1-2 during growth spurts. His sleep I would say is getting worse not better these days.

So we decided to finally try the CIO method. It was going sorta fine the first couple days. My husband started it and seems it works a little better with him than with me.

However, I noticed the past couple days a very needy baby. This was something I was afraid of when it came to CIO. Not all kids are the same. For the most part little K is pretty independent and not one to cry when I leave the room... But the past couple days he has been. He is afraid that we are leaving him... Exactly what I was afraid of! Who could blame him!

Last night when I placed him in his crib he would turn around quick to see if I was there. I would pat him, he would fall asleep and as soon as I started walking away he would wake up and freak!!! He was up until 130am doing this last night ;(

I have no problem with co-sleeping I always bring him in bed after the first stretches of sleep in his crib. But baby boy is desperate for comfort that he has been using me for comfort pulling my hair, getting up to snuggle closer wanting to nurse often... he keeps me awake!

;( I'm lost and don't know what to do now. Moms! What do I do! I'll continue a method a fellow twitter mom sent me and I'll see how it goes this week.

I'm exhausted and just want this cute little boy to sleeeeep!!

Sleep training and Christmas shopping

This weekend my husband started sleep training without me. Friday night I went out with the girls for nice evening to catch up. My husband let baby K cry it out to sleep. He went in every 5 minutes to tell him to sleep and within 30 minutes he fell asleep. He screamed and threw his head back slamming it against the crib over and over (eek) but eventually stopped and fell asleep. We did it again yesterday and it took 17 minutes with less crying. Hoping tonight it's less! We are working on it!

I also spent the weekend doing some Christmas shopping. I got his daycare teachers all a gift and a little gift for each of his little friends in his class.

I'm not even close to being finished Christmas shopping. But we love last minute shopping so we won't be done until Christmas eve!!

Did you Christmas shop this weekend!?

Night in the ER with baby boy

Little man has been sick with a fever and cough all week!

Yesterday his temp went back up and his breathing was pretty heavy. His nose was flaring and he was breathing fast as he was struggling to breathe ;(

I called telehealth (lucky to have this here). Talked to a nurse and with telling them all the symptoms they told us to go to the ER. So we headed down to sick kids to get checked out. The nurses and doctors were awesome. They gave him a ventilator mask (not sure what it's called) and they monitored his breathing. They told us he is fighting a virus and the worst of it is day 3-5 which we are at.

Kristian was so good at the hospital watching them take his temp and listen to his chest.

We got home at 4am. All 3 of us were pooped!

Ugh! the hardest thing is seeing your little one sick and not being able to do anything but try and comfort them. There were a lot of parents with sick kids last night, some very serious ;( He is doing better today and I'm praying for all the little kiddies fighting an illness ;( my heart aches for the families.

Zombiemoms taken to the next level

Hi, I'm tired... No wait... Exhausted! I can't tell you how my eyes are still even open right now.

Mr K has been sick with a cold, ear infection now a cough since he started daycare last month.

Last night was the worst. He cried ALL night. He slept only a couple of hours and not in a row. We were up all night! I stayed home with him today to bring him to the doctor. He has a bad cough and he prescribed a puffer.

Kristian is soo tired too. Last night was too much even for him (mr hates sleep)

He hasn't been eating to well either the past 2 days ;( which makes me worry he will drop some weight.

Ahh the stresses of a mom!!! And work? I don't even want to talk about it. But the last 2 days I was located Downtown in the mall. Love DT and the mall ha! but not the drive when you live in the suburbs ;) and not when daycare calls that baby has a fever and getting to him takes over an hour.

Praying my little guy gets over this bug and gets a break from it all too!!!

Letter to Santa and Walking all over!

Little K is walking a lot! A couple weeks before his birthday he took 2 steps and and every week since it's been more and more. Now he is walking all over the house! Walking more than crawling. He is 13 months and growing and learning soo much!

Today at daycare he wrote a letter to Santa and added his little painting on the letter too. How cute!!!

This weekend will be December and Christmas is getting close!!! I have not started any gift shopping at all! And with all the up coming events, I'll have to find time! Chop chop!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
