This Months Weigh In

So for the month of January I lost 9.2 lbs! Not bad at all. Im very pleased with what I lost. This was just with eating better. Because of me and Aydan getting sick I never got a chance to work out but that will change this month. I will either go M,W,F or T,TH and Sat. to my local YM.CA. I like to work on the elliptical machine and also swim. So that is my plan starting this week.

As for little Aydan we have had to do something I didn't really want to do. Every night we play what we call the pacifier game. We put it in she goes to sleep, she spits it out and wakes up, and we put it back in again, and again, and again. It was starting to get ridicules waking up 10 to 15 times a night to put it back in her mouth. So this weekend we put her in her crib gave her the pacifier and walked out of our room. Within 20 minutes she was crying for the pacifier, but we let her cry. She cried for thirty minutes and out hearts were breaking but we stuck to it. We soothed her a couple of times but did not give her back the pacifier. After 30 minutes she was out. She only woke up twice for a bottle and a diaper change and then went right back to sleep with no problem. The next night she cried for 10 minutes and went to sleep and slept for 7 hours straight. Last night was the same, she only woke up once ate and went right back down. So though I did not want to do the whole C.I.O. I think that it has been for the best. Because going the way we were going was going to drive us up the wall.

As far as how she has been doing crying in the day, Day by day it gets alittle better. Some days are worse then others but Me and Teressa have seen some improvement from the beginning of the month and now. So we are just keeping our fingers crossed and hoping it continues. Definitely seeing a small light at the end of the tunnel.
And just because you lasted this long here is a pic of Aydan.(excuse the mess in the back lol)
