Last night, we had a huge event happen. Evan woke me up to eat at 5:15 a.m. Nothing too special about that; it's pretty normal. But after I fed him, he was wide awake. That has always meant at least a good 45 minutes of putting him back down to sleep. Well, this morning, I laid him in his crib, happy and looking around, and went back to bed. I fully expected one of us to be getting up in about 15 minutes to soothe him. We didn't hear from him again. HE PUT HIMSELF TO SLEEP FROM A FULLY AWAKE STATE!!!!!! I'm getting him a bronze plaque from the trophy shop later on.
See those happy faces above in the photo? Haven't seen much of that around here for the last couple of weeks. Seth got a horrible virus, and the last couple of weeks have been hard. We're talking grumpiness and whining and plenty of tantrums and crying. Now, I think he's better, but he's gotten himself in a grumpy phase. I'm praying he'll get out of it soon. Yesterday, I was at my wit's end with both of them. Evan (the one resisting being Babywised) would hardly let me put him down without fussing, and Seth was difficult to keep happy for more than a few minutes at a time.
I wish I wrote more about the good stuff, but the bad stuff is on my mind this morning. So if you think of us, please pray that this mommy gets more patience and that her boys give her a little bit of a break today.
