They left out a word; where do I call to complain?

My niece was totally into baring her belly for a while--wore her American Idol costume constantly. Now she can't get her nose out of a book. Some stages are definitely better than others and cause much less stress for parents and other loved ones. ;)

About two weeks ago, JJ forgot how to sleep.

I'm not even kidding. This is the baby who was sleeping through the night at 2 months. Now he's lucky if he can go for two hours at a stretch. Bec and I are somewhat frantically trying to formulate and test hypotheses as to why. We're all exhausted, including him. We're gonna call the doctor on Monday just to make sure nothing's medically wrong.

If this phase is replaced by anything short of horns and flaming earwax, it'll be an improvement.


Dave* - I've totally been there. Both of mine were lousy sleepers -- despite being OK sleepers for the first couple of months -- and still go through bouts of weird patterns. Nien times out of ten we can't find the slightest reason why. It passes -- but not before making us very, very cranky in the meantime.

Still, falming earwax sounds kinda cool.

We may have a solution. We took him to the pediatrician today and she informed us that in addition to the one tooth that just broke through, he's cutting three more and may have another in pipeline. All at once. No wonder he's been crabby. This is like "American Werewolf in London" territory.

So he had a nice dose of Motrin before bed and we'll if that doesn't help.
