What's not magically easier?
No amount of experience, reading, trial-and-error seems to be getting us on track. Some nights are pretty good, and some nights are horrible. I am at an utter loss as to what is making a difference from night-to-night, since we try to stay consistent. We even let her put herself to sleep by placing her in the crib awake and checking on her every so often while she gums on her hands and eventually falls asleep.
The only thing she is consistent about is:
-taking thirty minute naps. that's all she will sleep at a time during the day. Words of wisdom from my Ma:
"Well...that's how your sister was. She only ever catnapped, even as a newborn. Of course she started sleeping 12 hours straight around 5 weeks.) THANKS MOM...except my newborn isn't sleeping 12 hours, it's more along the lines of is she sleeps more than 3-4 hours straight at night I consider that a giantly successful night.
So...I am wiped. G baby and I skipped story time at the library today because I'm seeing spots and my eyes won't focus and I was literally afraid to drive. We opted to have my husband drive us all to JcPenny and Lowe's instead to return some things for my mother-in-law and just basically to get out of the house.
I find that there is literally no makeup to cover up the true look of tiredness, so excuse my bleary-eyed look going on below:

Dancing with the G baby...the boy loves music and dancing
My accidental ombre hair...the result of sun, old dye jobs, and a long break from coloring/bleaching during pregnancy.
In full gear before I leave the house with my diaper bag/backpack and fanny pack. Hey, just in case you guys want to help me spread the backpack-for-diaper-bag-fanny pack-for-purse trend, mine are from Target and Urban Outfitters! lol!
