I know I haven’t been around in quite some time. I attribute it to the little nugget needing undivided attention and cutting two molars at once. Oh and on the sleep regression that seems to be happening.
Early last week, Alex started to become some strange version of himself. Grumpy, tired, and angry. All of the things he is usually not. After we realized it was his upper molars coming in, we swooped in with Tylenol and that seemed to take the edge off of his pain. But the sleep damage was already done. He had been waking us up in the early hours of the morning while his teeth were breaking through and me being the sucker I am, was waking up with him. How do you say no to a baby with two huge teeth breaking through their little baby gums??? I can’t.
So now, here we are and he can’t (or won’t) sleep without me holding him. New low point last night in the sleep department. I slept on the floor of Alex’s nursery with him. I was absolutely desperate after an hour and a half of sleeping then screaming, mostly screaming.
He is super cranky all day which is so weird for him! It seems like nothing is good enough to make him happy. I’m hoping this is just a phase. From what I have Googled (totally legitimate info) it seems as though it will pass in as few as 6 weeks. Yikes.
In other news, we adopted a doggie yesterday! Barring any feuds between her and Alex, she will be the newest member of our family starting next week! Meet Luna!
