Here's what happened last night:
IT GOT WORSE.
Remember yesterday's post where he was "kicking around in his crib for an hour and a half"? That seems like a nice dream compared to the 2 hours of screaming that we encountered last night. NO he is not sick and does not have an ear infection of any kind. He is just being a pain in the ass and that is that.
So, after going in and out of his room, trying to calm him down, willing him to not fling himself over the side of the crib again ... I let him cry.
I stayed out of his room and listened to him wail for what seemed like an eternity but it was probably more like
Then I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to go in.
And what did I find when I went in, you ask?
Everything had been thrown overboard and out of the crib: pillow, blanket and his beloved kitty and lambie stuffed animals.
But that's not the worst part.
The worst part is that he had also managed to unzip his footie pajamas and take them off. And he was half-way toward taking his diaper off.
That's about all I'm going to say about that because then mama lost her sh*t and it got ugly. He did eventually fall asleep and slept the entire night like usual. We don't have any problems with him waking up once he is asleep (he sleeps like a friggin' rock) (and now I just jinxed that, too) but now GETTING him to sleep is suddenly a huge chore.
I would like to add (and this is IMPORTANT so listen up) that this was preceeded by a fantastic evening. The three of us went out to dinner, went shopping to buy him a basketball hoop (yeah!) and we went to a softball game that a friend of mine was playing in. He even got his picture taken by the local paper. Maybe he will be in the paper today? We will see.
In any case it was a super fun evening that was topped off by Miles peeing in the potty!! It's a first!! He has been sitting on the potty and "pretending" for months but this time there was pee action and it was AWESOME. We did the potty dance and clapped and called Grandma ("I pee!") and it was fantastic.
And then the bedtime hell.
Did I mention that his eye is also partially swollen shut from falling at daycare yesterday?
Never a dull moment with this kid. *sigh*
Wish me luck with nap today. I'm gonna need it.
