I have NO idea what to do now!

So I've talked so highly of how well Annalise was doing... I don't know if it was because I was so excited or what but we have completely had a meltdown.

I don't even know how to explain what has happened. She was doing so well laying in her bed and going to sleep. Now when I leave the room she SCREAMS, gets her legs stuck in the crib. I go in fix her, give her her binkie and again we SCREAM! I don't want her to be scared of being in her crib or of her crib. So I rock her then I lay her in her crib, that was working until yesterday and now she'll wake up as I lay her down and SCREAM. Annalise doesn't just cry she cries so much that it sounds like she is hurt. She does this no matter what it is!

Also as of two nights ago she has decided she is not sleeping AT ALL. Last night I really had enough. She will sleep for 1 hour and wake up and cry and cry and cry. I get so frustrated because she will not go back to sleep and she is so sensitive to me. I get irritated and I'm stern with her and I tell her to stop, HA she starts crying more. I didn't get any sleep last night and as of this morning for her morning nap she slept 15 minuets.

So instead of taking steps forward like we have been all week we have COMPLETELY gone backwards and I'm not a happy mom and she's not a happy Anna. If anyone who reads my blogs has any ideas I am up for anything (besides the whole crying it out thing), I'm not ready for that. I don't know what happened or when she decided this change, but I honestly am at the end of my rope! Oh and the fun fun fun thing about last night... after about 15 minuets of Anna crying and FINALLY getting her to sleep Mike comes into the room and wakes me up because Jared is crying. His tooth is hurting him and he's not sure what to do. We put oragel on it and then he cried and cried and then he finally went to sleep. Shortly after I finally went back to sleep guess who woke up? I don't know what the heck is going on, all I know is that I'm not the happiest person on the block!
