My dd is also going through a crappy sleeping phase. I'm hoping it ends before baby #2 arrives in February. But the real reason I wanted to post here is because my dd is also really sensitive to my crying. I think I've only cried a couple of times in front of her and always because something was touching but you should've seen the look on her face. Really upset that mama was crying. I had to comfort her for quite awhile. It was very sweet.
Kids can be sooo frustrating and then so heartbreakingly sweet it's amazing!
