Our Week in a Nutshell: Tired of Being Sick

Our tiniest man has an ongoing fight with his ears. They tend to win A LOT.

He is one of those kids that it takes forever to create a good habit and just one or two days to break it...and this always seems to happen when he is sick.

For example...SLEEPING....

This week him, me, and hubby have had very little sleep (with exception of one good night for me where NiQuil was taken for my cold...glory be to that awful tasting stuff!).

The worst is that he has been waking up between 4-5 am and refusing to go back to sleep unless we hold and rock him. It is a nightmare.

This is what happened this morning--





...we finally got him to sleep without rocking him. Yes it was in our bed, and yes it was pretty uncomfy...for the parents anyway...yes these pictures are totally UNFLATTERING...for the parents anyway...

...but he slept...until 9 he slept!

Sickness and no sleep...that was our week.

ANYTHING for sleep. Even baby sprawled over you. ANYTHING. Hope he is on the mend!

Oh, my gosh, he is adorable! Poor boy. I hope you all are feeling better and get back to your schedule soon. I remember the days. Sad and glad at the same time that I don't have a real little one anymore!

I totally emphasize. My oldest, now five, only started to sleep by herself 7 days ago. She has been sick since day 1, but we did not realize it was her ears until she turned 4! Hang in there.

I hate weeks like that. Hope things get better soon.

that last picture is awesome. i'm so sorry the little dude has been miserable, thus making everyone else pretty sad (aka sleep deprived). in other news, cole is huge and, good for you, for not melting down. i'm sure i will. luke starts preschool next week and i think i might die. good luck pal! you're awesome
