So, it has been a long time. I can only blog when Oliver is sleeping, and that has been an issue for the past while. Up until a few weeks ago, when I laid Oliver down to sleep, he might cry for 5 minutes before falling asleep. Now, he cries for thirty or more minutes, before falling asleep or making me crack under the pressure and rescuing him from, what he sees as an awful ordeal.
When I don't know how to deal with situations, like parenting for example, I turn to books. I rely on the wisdom given to Christian folks to help me through. One of my favorite authors and speaker is Dr. Kevin Lehman. His book First-Time Mom: Getting off on the Right Foot from Birth to First Grade has been a wonderful resource!
