Life after the NICU and March for Babies

It has been a long time since I've posted on here. Most of you have followed Haley's story on her Carepages site. So I will keep this brief. Haley is doing so well. She is now 13 lbs 5 oz! She eats baby cereal and some veggies. She's tried peas, green beans, and carrots so far. She loved them all! She really enjoys eating and is so easy to feed unlike Jacob was. Jacob was an easy kid for most things but eating was always tough. Haley is a good eater, but the rest of the stuff is tough with her. We will be trying sleep training very soon. I'm borrowing a book from a friend and I really hope it works for her. She's been getting much better at night and is only up a 1 or 2 times now ( but still has those nights where she's up ever 2 hours too so nothing is really consistant yet ). Her napping has not been good at all though. I know I need to get her sleeping in her own room in her crib and that will help because Jacob wont wake her up but then she gets scared when she wakes up and no one is around. We'll get it figured out eventually. This weekend was the March for Babies. It was hot but no rain so it was good. We all made it the full 6 miles although some were doubtful. Haley only cried for the last 1/2 mile probably from being hot and hungry. Here are a few pictures from the walk.

She is soooo cute! I love the last picture of her with her adorable smile! I am so glad to see that things are going well for the most part...
It was so hard for me when I eventually did the crying it out method to train Kaylee how to put herself to sleep. I would sit on the stairs and just want to cry from hearing her sad little cry (and sometimes angry cry). I gave in a couple times but eventually stuck with it and now it's so great because I just lay her down and she puts herself right to sleep and very rarely ever gets up during the night.
Good luck with the sleep training!!! I look forward to seeing more pictures of you all!!!
