whoa, it is only wednesday. did you know that? only wednesday. this week has already been super hard. sunday night, grey woke up a whole heckuva lot. he'd wake after only a few minutes after eating and being laid back down. i couldn't figure out was was wrong. i even did the sniff test and couldn't smell anything. sometime before three a.m, i fed him yet again, and laid him back down, only for him to wake right back up. again. so i just decided to change his butt anyways. well. he was dirty. you would think he would have slept longer after having a clean butt. but no. all night his wake ups were between an hour and a half and two hours apart. whew, i was tired the next day, monday. and geez, my attitude showed it.
by nature, i am an introvert. i like to retreat for some alone time, some quiet-alone. i prefer to just go to my room, lounge on my bed with tea or coffee or infused water and either a book or crochet and tv. but we have seven people in our house, so sometimes, my personality just needs to leave so i don't have to talk to anyone and i can just be alone with my thoughts. i needed it last night, and i'm so glad my husband understands and practically kicked my booty out the door.
so we spent the night up and down. he was having trouble breathing at one point because of all the scream-crying he had been doing. so i put some baby vick's on him and took him to the couch to sleep sitting up so he could breathe. that lasted only about forty-five minutes. so back to bed we went. not that he actually slept long. it was such a long night, and he nursed off and on between snippets of sleep and a lot of crying slash screaming.
i'm pretty sure it might just be because he's teething. all of my kids were easy teethers. grey has four teeth broken through, and one more front top one coming in. and he was drooling pretty crazy-like last night. today, he napped early, like at nine a.m. which is unusual for him, but he napped for three hours. and so far, he's been happy today, thankfully. let's just pray tonight is better. i'm not sure i can make it the rest of the week at this rate. i'm so short with the kids right now, and i am having a real hard time getting anything accomplished around here. pray for me, friends.
so that's my week. how is yours?
