Project 52 - Week 16

 
I'm about to give up on photos since she hates the camera. Boo!
 
I'm pretty sure Bimmer knew something bad was going down this week, because her entire demeanor and patterns and schedule have been all sorts of wonky.
 
The worst has been in the sleep department. All those nights of 6+ hours of sleep or going down in her crib just fine have gone out the window. The past two nights? Puff and I have split having her sleep on our chest because she wouldn't sleep at all any other way.
 
I love the snuggle time. But geez... we don't sleep very well with a wiggly snoring baby on us!
 
So what does that mean? It means that we are finally giving in to Doc Hottie's advice (only 8 weeks late) and we are starting "Operation Cry It Out" effective tomorrow night. It is going to suck... if only because it will keep us awake more than her crying breaking my heart. I know she's OK.
 
Going back to work has been hard. I didn't know that babies this young could have stranger anxiety, but she definitely was wary of Nanny the past two mornings. I hate to leave a crying baby, but what choice do I have? I know she's adjusting as the day progresses, but it's still hard.
 
Here's hoping we can establish some good sleep habits before next week's update. In the meantime, I am going to snuggle that baby and relish in all her fabulous smiles... just not in front of the camera.
