It worked!! Jalena slept through the night!!!! Wow! lol...But I think the couch is going to look pretty comfortable for the next few nights, not really, I will be seeing the chiropractor later today! But in fear that she will wake and see me! I'm so proud of my princess!! This is probably the 5th time in her whole life! (15 months) that she has slept through the night! 9:00 pm-6:50 am! wooo whoo!
So last night Jalena went to sleep around 9:00. I slept on the couch, alllllll night! :-) She woke up around 12:30, cried for 5 minutes, then went back to sleep till I woke her up at 6:45! Huge improvement, obviously because she didn't see Mommy in the bed next to her, and scream for me to pick her up! Hopefully tonight is just as good!!
So my soon to be 15 month old daughter still doesn't sleep throught the night. She has recently been waking up 3 times a night. And WILL NOT go back to sleep unless she has a full (10oz.) bottle of milk. With that being said, my daughter DOES NOT need 30oz. of milk in the middle of the night, So last night she went to sleep at 8:30 then was up at 11:30, and would not go back to sleep. Finally I put her in her crib, and went to the couch (We share a room). Now, let's just say that she cursed me out for a good 30 minutes. So tonight is offically night 2 of C.I.O Yes, I did just say that (insert sad face here) I have the video monitor set up, so I can watch her all night long, of if she's crying too long, I can go rescue her.
Does anyone have any good night time tips? We both need sleep.
So..I was feeling rather crafty tonight, and went up to Michaels, the craft store....And decided to make a hair clip holder. I made one for Jalena and one for my best friends daughter, Kaylee. Here is the finished product:
It was so much fun making them! lol..Painting made me feel like a kid again. I was actually thinking of having a little contest nothing MckMama size, just something small, and was going to giveaway some babylegs, that have gone unopened...but now I'm thinking of having a contest and I can make one of these for your little one's hair bows, or if you don't have a girl..then maybe for someone you know? What do you all think? Anyone in? If I have enough people who will participate, say like 5-10.Of course the more, then better, but I'm saying 5-10 because well, I don't have much blogging buddies! lol...then It's a go.. Let me know, and I will think of what kind of contest to have to give away one of these adorable clip holders!
Soo yesterday I got another lovely phone call from Jalenas school. It was 9:25am, I dread any phone call from the school. I knew it was either she was sick, or she got hurt and they called just to inform me. NOPE! Neither. She recently has picked up on a wonderful behavior. Biting! Yes, my daugher bites. This was the second time in 3 weeks, the first time I was hysterical..yesterday not so bad. Just disapointed. They call me to tell me, she went up to another kid, who was doing nothing to her, and bit her on the hand. They redirected her told her "NO Biting!" and she got "time out". After some thinking, I think I am going to request to see the tape from yesterday morning, to see what really happened. Not that I think my child is perfect like her Mommy and could not do this, but I need to confirm that my child really is a Pit bull, and recognize my fears that she is not the Princess I think she is!
Really, I know children do bite, and it's a stage. But I would like to see it for my own eyes.
Today was such a fun afternoon! I picked up J from school, we stopped by my friends house to say hi! Then came home had dinner, then colored! Here is J hard at work!
Tonight after bath time!
So while I was Christmas shopping I came across something that I knew would be valuable for us in the next few months. I decided to take it out now, to get Jalena used to it. I now show you her new favorite "toy":
She loves to sit on it, I always let her sit for a few minutes before bath time, and yesterday she even went pee-pee! :-) So now I ask, baby or big girl?
We had a great weekend! Very productive! Friday I picked J up from school and we hung out outside all afternoon playing, although when she kept trying to run into the street I decided to take her to the park.
We went to the park @ 5:30, at 5:40 the Park Ranger closed the park, I was very upset and protested that the park didn't close till 5:45, and we still had 5 minutes, needless to say..I didn't win! So we left, and Daddy came over.
One of Jalenas favorite foods:: CARROTS! I told Jalena let's go sit in your highchair, we can put the carrots on your chair, and that is exactly what she did! lol
One very excited little girl, to be eating her veges!
Jalena's new obsession...
Only problem is when she is eating it, we go through alot of shirt changes!
Saturday afternoon Kristen and I took the girls to get icees...here they are! Best Friends like their Mommys!
Oh, I hit publish and forgot to mention, my highlight of the weekend, I got to sit at the Dr's again, on Saturday morning! J has another ear infection :-(
So Jalena was home throwing up Monday, yesterday I worked till 6, and my Mom picked up J from school. I was 2 minutes away from my house, and my mom calls me to say she is thowing up. 20 minutes after I get home, its my turn! I was up all night vomiting. Then this morning my sister and dad get sick. This flu totally stinks, its so nasty!
Sooo yesterday I was really sick, so I decided to send Jalena to school, go to the doctor, then go home and rest all day. So thats just what I did. Except I got to have my little princess at home with me! Just as I got home from the doctor, I got a call from her school saying she was throwing up! So I rushed to get to her, took her home, and took good care of her! She threw up a few times, but with a nap and some Pedialyte she was Allllll better! As for me, I felt better too!
Now, for the good part!.................................................................................................................................
Jalena slept from 7:30 pm- 6:00am!! did not get up once!! I of course did, checked on her about 5 times, but she finally slept through the night, now lets see if this is just a fluke or if she can do it again tonight!!
I am not sick and feel like crapola! I did not take Nyquil 1 hour ago, and am not wondering why the heck am I still awake?! I did not stay in bed all day today! I did not go to the mall yesterday with hopes to buy myself something, and only find things for the princess! I did not get what felt like 50 tweets in a row from MckMama on New Years eve, and get accused of my "boyfriend" texting me, by my boyfriend! I did not set a New Years resolution to start my diet on Fri, only to tell myself to start on Monday, and I am not freaking that tomorrow is Monday!
Long time no post!! lol.WE have been very busy, and I finally have a chance to update everyone! Our Christmas was great! Jalena got too many toys! lol, Santa was very good to her! I'm a little upset though, I didn't get many pics, for some reason I was more concerned about getting everything on the camcorder. Even though that battery died 20 minutes into our 5 hour gift opening!
Here is Jalena checking out the tree..she was obsessed with the ornaments!
Her new favorite thing: BOOKS!The dollar section at Tar-jay does wonders!lol
Christmas day:dressed for dinner, then the movies!
She loves her new horse! It's cute..it interacts with the tv!
One of her favorites! Her princess table. In which she gets the chairs taken away daily, you ask why? See pic below!
Don't mind the mess, we haven't yet learned the "One toy out at a time" rule!
Another favorite...her princess tent! It's also Giga the cat's favorite, too!
Jumping on the horse!
Then it was New Years eve, Daddy and I went to Hollywood beach, walked down the strip looking for a restaurant to eat at! WE gave up after finding Joe's Pizza...in which was prob the 4th pizza place we saw out of all 7 restaurants we passed! Here is us in the car...
Mommy, before we left!
So that's it! Hope everyone had a good Christmas, and have a Happy and Prosperous new year!
