But then again it’s my fault. It’s 10:37pm and my 2 YO son is still awake. I did have him out past an acceptable nap time and I let him have a late nap so of course he is fighting sleep. All I want to do is go to bed myself.
I maybe got 3 hours of sleep last night? A sore back and a crappy bed were contributing factors. The night before last I tossed and turned all night. Some how I managed to get through the day without a nap and one cup of coffee. I think it was spending time with friends that kept me going.
The little guy hasn’t been eating much the last week. He is cutting his 2 year molars and has a cold but nothing has come through yet. It seems like forever since he started cutting his molars. Needless, to say I’ve been in worry mode. Thank-god he is drinking his formula today. I still have him on it as he eats poorly. It isn’t that I don’t offer him his favourite foods or anything I eat he is picky at the moment. I am working on a schedule for him and a meal plan…
Aaron is still fighting it. 5 minutes into the post I had to go in and console him as he was hysterical. I don’t believe in crying-it-out. I let him cry when warranted and know the difference between his cries. But as he can’t verbally tell me what he wants he cries for a reason. I know the whiny “I’m tired but fighting sleep” cry and when it’s to be ignored.
I wonder if maybe he has a fear of the dark? His light has a dimming option so I always leave it on just a tad. He all of a sudden has fear of the bathtub drain. When water is being let out of the tub he will scream bloody murder I you don’t get him out ASAP. And this is a cry of fear. Tonight I wanted to give him a good rinse as I had some Johnson and Johnson Soothing Baby Vapor Bath in the tub for his cold but he has really dry skin so I didn’t want that to be the last stuff to touch his skin so I lathered him up in his Aveeno wash and gave him a quick rinse. He wasn’t happy.
The poor kid. He’s teething, has a cold, has no appetite, had some major runny diaper issues today… I was hoping and praying he wasn’t coming down with a GI related illness. So far it was just a few episodes. Well the little dude is quiet. That is my cue to hit the hay also.
