sterling silver sampling!

>> Tuesday, February 23, 2010

amidst all of the crib/sleep training drama, i've been working with some amazing sterling silver wire. half round, square, beaded, twisted, patterned, different gauges... such loveliness! in the stack to the left, i've incorporated several different types and the combination of textures is quite amazing. i've also been working with awesome domed floral patterned wire, which has made some lovely, baroque/medieval inspired bands! who knew that silver could be so versatile!!!
so... how goes the sleep training, you ask? meh, not so good. the mini has had NO problem returning to the crib, and i've somewhat overcome my "missing-baby-insomnia", but i realize that eventually halfway (or so) through the night, we end up together in my bed. oh well. i seem to have found a balance where we both get enough rest. when i'm better rested, i'm less moody and emotional about leaving her, plus i'm able to function well in the daytime. even the sleep training gurus say that nothing is worth it unless mommy is well rested... so i'm just going to go with it for now. survival, right????
i have learned a few things in the last couple of days:
1. thank God for the white noise machine
2. an early bedtime is best - darn you, cortisol!
3. i sometimes think i hear the mini crying when she's not
4. the battery in the baby monitor wears out very quickly.
5. an hour of alone time with the husband is quite restorative
6. the better she naps, the better she sleeps.
sleep. who knew it was so complicated???
