Rough night last night.

Parker’s usual “wide-awake” time is from 11pm to 2am. No matter what I do, I cannot get this to change. I have tried everything, but that’s when he wants to be up.

Last night, I don’t know what the deal was. He was up until after 4 am crying. You should have seen us. I was on the couch, holding him, nursing him, trying everything, with tears just streaming down my face. No matter what I did, I just couldn’t get him calmed down. I even called Gene in tears at work. All I wanted was to go to sleep.

Thank heavens I have an amazing husband. When he got home this morning, he took over dealing with the kids and let me go back to bed for a few hours. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without him.

Part of me wonders if Parker is teething already, or if he’s not feeling well. My other boys teethed really early, and they both had teeth by 4 months old. Crazy, I know. Parker may just be following in his brother’s footsteps.

I have much to catch up on over here. If you see 10 new posts from me on different topics, don’t be surprised! 🙂
