Rough Night

So I was amazed at first at how well Steven was doing. He slept really well and could even put himself back to sleep with no problem and he hardly ever cried! That, however, has slowly gone downhill. Last night I think I finally hit my limit. He hadn't slept well all day and hadn't been eating very well either. Then, he threw up after two feedings, kept waking up even when it wasn't time for him to eat, and wouldn't stop crying or take his pacifier. I was very frustrated and tired. Luckily, my mom was here to save the day. She woke up to all the crying, told me to go back to sleep, and took Steven. It was amazing and I was actually able to sleep for a solid 2 hours until she woke me up to feed him. My mom is so great :) Needless to say, we were all a little tired today (and having 8 am church didn't help with that....) and so we all took naps! I think these two looked the cutest doing it.
We also have gone on a couple walks this week. We tried using the carrier that Jill and Randy got us, but he didn't seem to be a big fan of that, at least not yet. He did, however, love this one that my mom brought, and he falls asleep in it every time. TJ's not so excited that he prefers this one. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the pattern on it...
We also took some pictures today for the Peper family letter. We tried to take them when Steven was awake, and I think he did great!
So even though it was a rough night last night, and I'm sure there are many more of those to come, I'm still so grateful for my wonderful family :)
