10:42 pm – Ugh. My son is screaming, give me earplugs! I am sitting on the couch in my in-laws living room, while Brad tries to sleep on the air mattress on the floor. Tristan is in his crib screaming his lungs out, one room over. Don’t worry. He is fine. I got him out, like a good mommy, and held him for ten minutes. He didn’t let out one peep while in my arms. I changed his diaper and put him back to bed. And the screaming started back up….
10:55 pm – Well, I couldn’t stand it anymore and now Tristan is in here with us. I know his fit was keeping my in-laws awake and they need their rest. As I blog he is walking around in the dark looking for trouble. Hey, I guess he learned to click his tongue! That is new! Oh and he is farting too. Maybe he has gas pains??? Tell me kid, what is your problem??? I tried putting natural vanilla extract on his gums. Little Dude is cutting a molar. This could definitely be making him cranky. A friend told me about using natural vanilla extract for toothaches and I thought, “Let’s try this on teething gums! It has to be healthier then that store bought stuff, right?” I can say that it works, with no ill side effects thus far. I just dip my finger in the bottle and rub it on his gums. Tah dah! Is it working tonight? I don’t know.
11:29 pm – We moved his crib in the living room for tonight and Tristan is much happier. He is drinking his milk… excuse me, he was drinking his milk. He just threw his sippy at me so I guess he is done. But I don’t hear any crying, and flopping himself on the floor of his crib is a positive sign of impending sleep.
11:39 pm – Ahhhh, he is sucking his thumb! I can hear him! Victory, finally! No, wait… he is standing up and speaking baby gibberish. I rejoiced too quickly. With only a 20 minute nap today I would think Tristan would be super tired! I am tired! The rest of Louisville, Kentucky is sleeping, son! It’s your turn!
11:47 pm – After multiple proofreading, I am done with this post. Tristan however is still awake, but he is being very good in his crib. I am going to add a photo of my sweet boy and hit publish. When Tristan plans on actually shutting his eyes and calling it a night, we may never know. But as long as the screaming is no more, I am hitting the sack. Signing off, Tina, tired mom of four, yet happy mom of four :-)
