rough night #2

ugh. wednesday night was wonderful! gabe slept the whole night, not waking up once! i was hopeful, optimistic, happy. all set for thursday night. things did not go so well.

gabe was asleep by 9:30. however, he was up looking for his pacifier by 10:30 and 11:30. jorge was out and came home around 12:30 when i realized why i was so hot in my sleep. we had lost power! luckily it was only out for about an hour. but that didn't stop gabe. he got up and would not calm down. we wound up bringing him in our bed because he was so upset. usually that leads to gabe calming down and falling asleep. not that night. he tossed and turned and cried all night long. needless to say, jorge and i didn't get much sleep.

i noticed that his two top teeth were coming thru more so i assumed that was what kept him from sleeping the previous night. so i gave him some tylenol before bed. i had a migraine so i went to bed right after he did, around nine. it didn't seem like it was very long and gabe was up screaming and crying. i carried him for a little, calmed him down and put him back in bed asleep. he woke up immediately! again we tried to bring him to our bed but it was more of the same. crying, tossing and turning.

now he is sleeping on the couch with jorge. hopefully he will keep sleeping. i think this is the longest he has gone without crying. i am crossing my fingers for a better night tonight.

i took this off another blog...i just love what it says.
