I literally almost drove her to the church with her rubber ducky to bathe her in the holy water.

It is one in the morning. Madeleine went to bed only one hour ago. At midnight.

Every time I put her in her crib she screamed like I was torturing her, as she has been doing for the past week and a half since we got back from New Mexico. She just stands up and screams. And screams. And screams.

So I will get her out, feed her, cuddle her and usually within 5 minutes of cuddling her she is passed out cold in my arms which means she is not sick, she just has a terrible temper. Kyle and I have noooo idea where she got that from.

So now I have to figure out how to get her back to the sweet baby who fell asleep at a decent time in her crib by herself. I have no idea how to do that. I do know one thing though, if this is how it is going to be when we come back from vacation we are never leaving the eastern time zone ever again.

Also, I really wish I had a mom friend near me that I could meet for coffee and talk about mom things with, not just over the phone but in person. Someone my age in my state of life.

So my prayers tonight are please help me figure out how to help my sweet baby get back to a normal sleep schedule and can I please have a friend pretty please with a cherry on top. Thank you Lord for my baby and help me to be a better, more patient mother.
