Jenna's been fussy

Man oh man... Jenna's back on the fussy bandwagon. She's getting better as of last night, but it's been difficult to get her back to that point. For the last few weeks she's been teething (still only one tooth) and just fussy as can be.

Not last night, but the night before, she was up every half hour... meaning, as soon as I'd get a chance to just drift off, she'd be up again. I was so out of it the only way I knew it'd only been 20 minutes since I was last in her room was by looking at the clock. My body was desperately trying to catch up on sleep and it just wasn't happening.

When I would go to her, I'd try to feed her and she wasn't having any of it. She just wanted to be held. So hold I did. So did Nick. We were both frazzled yesterday and luckily Nick snapped me out of it saying "We have to enjoy the good and the bad. She's a blessing and we need to understand that and enjoy it" Thank you Nick.

Last night was much better. We went to bed shortly after 9 and she woke to feed at 12:30 and 3:30. (I dream fed her at 6:30 as usual). Thank you Jenna for letting us catch up. She's been resisting the bottle at day care and I'm thinking that's the reason she's now requiring more feedings at night. Either way... it's gotten a bit more difficult these last few weeks and I hope things level out soon..
