The Sleep Chronicles: Valery’s Story

Today I’ve got another edition of the Sleep Chronicles for you – Valery blogs over at Life and Love Actually and has an adorable little boy named Zach.  Valery and I have actually been blog friends since we were both planning our weddings, and I love when wedding planning friends become mom friends.  Enjoy! I’m so happy to be chiming in with Jess’ Sleep Chronicles! I found while writing this that a lot of the details were forgotten (especially the low points), so I’m glad to have it documented – if nothing else, than to remind myself of how we…

Moms, I Need Your Help!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been dealing with Abbie getting up in the middle of the night again – exactly 3 hours after she goes down for the night.  EVERY night. Let me rewind.  Right before she turned 6 months old, Abbie started sleeping through the night.  It was glorious – I felt like a human again!  After about 2 weeks of that, she started waking up.  We were dealing with a pretty bad diaper rash and I had the beginnings of my sinus and ear infections (which I thought was a cold), so I figured it was just…
