She’s Asleep and I’m Sad

Filed Under: Life

I just realized that I have been sitting here looking around the Internet and writing my “opinion articles” for the past hour and I haven’t heard a peep out of Cara.

I was really skeptical about the “Ferber Method”.  When I say skeptical, I mean to say that if you had told me three months ago that I would use it I would have said “No way in hell!”.  Then again, if three months ago you had told me that my daughter would sleep for longer than two hours, I would have laughed in your face.

I was/am such a fan of Attachment Parenting.  It was just something that I did even before I knew it had a name.  Cara would not allow us to keep her in her infant carrier for any longer than it took us to go from point A to point B.  Putting her in her swing was a no go and the only place that she was happy was with me.

So, Tucker made me a sling and it changed our lives.  Finally we could go to Target without her screaming at us.  Finally we were able to go to the mall and Tucker could carry her without Cara making life hell.  Finally I could cook dinner, or fold the laundry, or whatever without both of us being completely miserable.

Cara slept with us or in our room for the first four months of her life and it really worked for all of us.  But, there finally came a point when it wasn’t working any longer and Tucker and I knew something had to change.

That whole journey started about the same time that I started blogging and some of the comments that I received really helped.  It also didn’t hurt that Cara was sleeping better and was in a better mood and that I was sleeping more also.

I guess the point of this is to say thanks for the comments and that my little baby will be eight months old tomorrow and that really freaks me out.  I guess everyone is right when they say that “they grow up before you know it”.

Oh.  Thanks for putting up with the “sponsored content”.  Like I’ve said before, I’m not going to write something that I don’t believe.  So, if I say that I think something rocks, then I really do. (For what it’s worth)  This is really the one thing that allows me to be home with Cara all the time and still make some cheese.

That is all.
