Still Not Sleeping

I have consulted so many people and have read all of the seemingly endless articles about promoting good sleeping habits in toddlers. All of this hasn't provided me any assurance that my son will sleep through the night. I have tried the "cry it out" thing and all it gives me is a headache and "fried" nerves. Little Pookie is happy and healthy, he just doesn't sleep through the night consistently. What really makes it hard is when I've been awakened during the night, whilst hubby is still in dreamland, and have to stay away with the little tyke until he deems it proper to go back to sleep. Some days I find myself so drained that I feel like I have to just prop my eyelids open. But then the next night, the little guy will sleep soundly. We've tried the crying thing, milk with cereal, gas medicine, bigger diapers (more absorbency!), and nothing has been a salvo for us. I am hoping that when my hubbies starts staying home during the day, he will take the night shift with Little Man, and I'll get the opportunity to get some rest. Ya'll pray for me!

Pookie in the Park 2

Here's the next layout.

Pookie in the Park

Here are some of my latest works of my son in the park. These layouts use elements and papers from various artists from Two Peas, CK, and Scrap Girls. I used Photoshop to add a layer mask in order to blend two photos.

Just Wondering

How many kids actually sleep through the night and how many parents are still awaking in the wee hours to the agonizing screams of their infants. My son just turned 8 mos. and doesn't sleep through the night yet. He has slept all night on two ocassions and I just haven't seemed to get him in the habit of sleeping. I talked to the doctor and he suggested cold turkey, but he also reminded me that "baby dearest" has acid reflux. So with the medicine and some cereal in his formula, I try to get "baby dearest" to sleep. So far, he only wakes up once at night, but those times vary from day to day. I'm really sleep deprived. So much so that last night I woke up wondering if I had put the baby back in his crib after I rocked him to sleep! Does anyone else have this trouble. Please chime in if you're experiencing this.
