A quick update from the land of exhaustion. It seems we have a teething toddler again and this time it’s a doozy. Last night went as follows: Bedtime at 7:30, awake and crying at 8:15. Nurse for 10 minutes, back to sleep until 9:00. Wake up at 9:00 screaming. Comes into our bed and nurses until 9:15. Back in his bed until 11. Starts crying and sits up in his bed. Then stands up and cries. Comes back in bed and nurses on and off until 12:45….still semi-crying. Starting to feel feverish, we decide to just get up…none of us really sleeping. Temperature is 101. Gave L a dose of M.otrin and we watch FROSTY on repeat until 1:45am. He gets out the hairdryer and wants to play. I am sooooo tired my eyelids are burning. Finally get him back to bed at 2-something, and he sleeps till about 4, nurses then goes back to bed until 6:15, when he promptly gets up for the day. Time for his morning nap around 10 and he does the same routine….eventually nursing for 45 minutes straight (oh.my.gosh.) and I feel like my boobs are pancakes now. He ends up sleeping for a total of 15 minutes, and I am so bummed I didn’t get a chance to rest just a little. My body feels like it’s running in slow motion and my brain is foggy. I finally got him down for an afternoon nap (which he NEVER takes anymore) which is both good and bad. Good, because now he will be rested…..Bad, because he won’t think he needs to go to bed until 10pm. Why is teething so hard? Oh, and at just shy of 6 weeks preggo, the nausea fairy has come to visit. A little early aren’t ya????
