We've finally found a loser....and one small victory for mom

well, i didn't get a chance to take a photo of Chewie venturing into the world of pureed broccoli, mainly due to the choking, gagging, screaming, spitting and crying that came along with it.

Broccoli = No go.

Well, we'll try again at supper and see how we do... i tellsya, for a kid who will quite happily eat my hair by the handful, he sure has opinions about broccoli.

Also, the night before last i finally reached that point of frustration with the whole getting up at 1am, and then 4 am and then 7am garbage. I realized, as i made my way across the hall: "I am sick of this!" and so, last night B-rad and i made the decision to let Chewie cry. It sucked. But, it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. It's not like he's not used to crying out in his crib. Hell, that's how i put him down for a nap every time! So, he fussed and cried, and just as B-rad and i were deciding whether or not to give in and go get him, he stopped. and it was quiet.

we did it. and he really only cried for 15-20 minutes tops. i thought that i'd have to go through it all over again at 4am, but while i was waking from terrible nightmares all night, my little baby slept like an angel until 7, which is his normal wakeup time.

With this tiny victory, i worry about tonight... it seems i'm never blessed with two victories in a row. wish me luck.

Go Chewie!

And good luck to YOU at sleeping through the night now that you've had months of interrupted sleep:)

I hope it went well. I like broccoli but that is definitely an acquired taste and it's probably a different texture than the other things he's eaten. If he likes lots of other veggies then that's more than you can hope for! :)
