Sleepy Boy

Robert has been sleeping very fitfully lately, which is sad for all of us. I don't know exactly why, but he wakes fussing several times in the night, cries for a few moments, and then subsides. When we go in, he's sleeping, but he does it again a little bit later. Then he wakes up much earlier than usual, which is also quite unfortunate. During the day he's tired and naps a lot, and is fussy in the evening. I wonder if this is a teething thing, and hope he's not sick or something. He's not running a fever or anything, and is active, so maybe it's just the dreaded teeth.

M went out to class today, but other than that we all stayed home all day. I cleaned up the living room and vacuumed again, because Robert was having a rolly day. He wants to crawl so much, he just can't quite get those legs under him! Soon, very soon. We watched Fraggles, ate soup, and fed the baby bananas and rice. It was pretty much a quiet and more importantly, very inexpensive day. The baby was obviously exhausted by about six, and against my better judgment, I put him to bed at six-thirty. I am afraid of how early he will be up in the morning.


  1. Do you think he may be having a little tummy trouble - dealing with new foods and stuff? Maybe a little gassy in the night? It is quite a change to go from all formula to all the different foods. Is he getting enough to eat? Just a few ideas to think about. That picture is so darn cute.

  2. Merileigh is a good sleeper...unless she's getting a new tooth. Sometimes there aren't any other signs of teething, other than waking up in the night, and getting up way too early, but sure enough, in a few days I will notice a swollen gum, and soon a new tooth. She got her first two at 6 months.
