I'm having such a hard time keeping up with the blog lately. I think of things all the time to blog about, but can't seem to get around to it. The past few days have been super busy though.

We went to Will's 9 month doctor appt. on Friday morning, but I'll save those stats for the official 9 month post. On Friday afternoon we met some friends in Arlington and had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory...mmmm. Will did so good, he loves being out and about, sitting in the high chair & eating his snacks. However it was a different story when we got home. We are trying to be really hard core about this cry it out thing- but so is our kid. The crazy- I mean passionately determined boy, screamed from about midnight to 5 am! That's when I finally gave in and got him. Poor little thing. Saturday night was better and hopefully tonight will be better too. I just can't stand it. It hurts my heart, but I'm going to stick with it b/c I know it will be better for him and us.right?

Plus, this separation anxiety has entered into ridiculous levels and the kid doesn't want to leave my side. I'm trying to be positive about the situation. For instance, instead of saying he's a maniac, I'll say he's "passionate". He is determined, loyal, strong willed, just plain strong, and just loves his mamma so much (What can I say, I'm just too incredible). I'm working on not laying down with him for naps and starting the weaning process by giving him a bottle at night instead of nursing him. Hopefully eventually this phase will pass... it better or he'll still be living with Steven and I in 30 years.

My Grandma's 88th birthday party was on Saturday. It was so special to see how many family members came to spend what could possibly be her last birthday with her. I've decided to start sharing some stories about this crazy lady soon. She's such a nut!

Anyway, here's some pics from the last few days.- NEVERMIND! Blogger is having problems uploading my pics, so I will try again tomorrow. I'd better go to bed while my little love is sleeping. Praying for sleep!
Oh, and I turned 29! This is the only pic I can get to load! I've tried like 5x now! Boo!

Ok, first of all we are crying it out in the Mc household right now too, so we feel your pain. Not 5 hours, but every time I put her down to sleep. It's exhausting and so hard but I believe it works. Hang in there! Brin is crazy attached to me right now too! NO one else will do- even Daddy. It makes for a long day when your child wants to be held all day and needs you in sight. This too shall pass, right? Not sure why you are having problems with the pics but I uploaded the videos on blogger as usual. I know it can be very finicky. You can always do youtube then imbed it in your post. If you need more info, let me know! Happy belated birthday!
