So, it was a pretty good night.  Sleep training, that was what I tackled.  And, it wasn't so bad! 

This is not my baby.  I have a baby boy, but this is what he did.  Minus the thumb - he slept standing up.  And, every 15 minutes or so, I'd lay my sleepy, fussy baby down.  He seemed to welcome that, although he really preferred to be held and nurse.  I did nurse at 1:45, 3:45 and 6:45, but not until he was asleep.  At 3:45, he fussed for a whole hour, but we didn't co-sleep.  Tonight, DH will help eliminate the 1:45 AM feeding.  And really, there will only be one left, as he got up for the day at 7 AM.  I will attempt to decrease the time nursing too. 

Tatunka!  Tatunka!  DH was to go buffalo hunting today.  He got up at 3:45 AM and drove with the guys, hauling 4 wheelers.  The river was too high and they couldn't cross it.  One guy's truck got stuck.  Its actually American Bison.  No Bison meat for my freezer.  Too bad. 

Today, we will go to the Crab Festival.  The kids and I went on Thursday, and they enjoyed the rides.  It was so much nicer than the festival we went to in our Northern MI town, not the Cherry Festival - I enjoyed that, but the hometown festival that shall remain nameless.  I always found it dirty and gross.  I hated taking the kids to it.  Very redneck, which I am not.  The Crab festival is lots of fun and there is some nice stuff planned for the weekend.
