go to sleep

Rilynn has been a pretty good sleeper for the most part. We tend to have to wake her up to eat in the middle of the night because she won't cry. My mom said that's how I was.

However, lately she hasn't been sleeping in between feedings as much and has been fussier. It's been a huge challenge trying to figure out the reason behind the crying...gas, hunger, need to cuddle. I know I'll eventually be able to read her better but it's so hard to watch her be so upset and not know how to help.

Being a mom is definitely a blessing. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done but when she does stop crying and looks at me with those huge brown eyes, it makes everything else not seem to matter. :)

Oh, I better go. She's crying again.

She is so beautiful! Good luck figuring her out-I know it is tough but I can see how much you are enjoying it to! It will all get better soon-you hope right? :)

Yay for an update! And she is absolutely adorable. She has the most beautifully shaped eyes and pouty lips!!! (I don't give out these comments to everyone- I'm very serious!)

Anyway, give yourselves time to get acquainted with one another. There is this awesome lady (forgot her name) who actually has a way to interpret your baby's cries.

Oh and here's a short little video clip of examples of the sound that means "hungry":

I bet you can find the other words on YouTube to get an idea of how they sound as well!
