So exhausted!

If you couldn't tell by the title, I'm tired. It all started a few weeks ago, but the worst happened on Thursday night. My son Aaron woke up at midnight. I fought to get him back to sleep and finally at 2:30 he gave in, only to wake up an hour later. I think by 4:00 or shortly after he was asleep. My son Jamin has a cold, so he was waking up on and off because of his coughing. I think by 5:00 I finally got to sleep.

Last night, we got home a bit late, so the boys were in bed around 10:00. Only about an hour past their bedtime. Jamin slept fine, except for a coughing fit he had around 10:30. Aaron decided to wake up, and I'm not sure exactly what time but I think somewhere around 5:30. I've been fighting with him ever since to get back to sleep.

I know, some will say "just let him cry". I tried. He screams until he's coughing and sounding like he's going to throw up. He's my good sleeper. I don't know what's wrong. When he wakes up you can tell he's tired, but it's almost like he can't sleep.

So, I'm not sure what to do. I don't know if there's something wrong with him, or if it's a phase, or he's teething (really really badly). He's fine during the day. I guess we'll see how the next few nights go.

Just remember "...and this too shall pass." Soon you'll be like me where you have to bribe your son with money to hug you. And no money in the whole world will get you a hug anywhere in public. Enjoy it while you can. (I know...easy to say when I get 18 hours of sleep a day!) he he

Do you think he might have an ear infection? Or if it's teething have you tried orajel or something like that? I remember nights like those. Not fun!

Question: Is it the 'thing' to have your background a light blue? Do I have to change mine???
