i hate that my mind focused on something that seems so trivial and base.
and yet, i am desperate for it.
last night continued the march down the road of unbearable nights; 3 in a row, that have been increasingly delirious. little man is becoming, a bit, shall i say, high maintenance??! the night before last, he would pretty much only sleep laying across me, in just the right position, while being patted a bit. insanity at 3am when you are beyond crying out for some shut eye.
so, i decided that it was TIME … sleep training, here we come! i got a baby monitor yesterday and was focusing (again, focusing on sleep? seems so lame) on the night ahead. i was ready. it was time.
my mom came over for dinner which was lovely, and little man was a complete lovebug for her. but when she was holding him, she noticed he sounded a bit congested, maybe? my mama alarm bells went off. sure enough, he became progressively more congested, and by the end of the evening, had a stream of clear snot pouring forth from his nose. 😦 poor little love!!! we had to repeatedly use the “squeegie” to clear him out, and the snot was causing him to cough and gag somewhat.
so, on the night i was ready to bust out with sleep training, my sweet little love gets some crud. this is his first time being even remotely “sick” and i hate it for him! 😦 needless to say, last night topped all as far as sleepless and delirious. i think i got maybe a few stretches of 2 hours but mostly, not.
i feel bad complaining but i am just keepin it real. i hope to have a wonderful update soon about how beautifully his sleep is going and how vastly improved nighttimes have become! here’s hoping … and praying. 🙂
