After Micah's fussiness last night, I hastily declared Micah "asleep for the night" at 9:15. Apparently, I spoke too soon. DH & I were catching up on the DVR, reviewing the architectural plans and discussing child care challenges last night. Right around 2:30, I started to get a bit sleepy. I turned to DH and said "I think I'm going to call it a night after we finish watching this show." About 3 minutes later, we heard this LOUD wailing over the monitor - yup, Micah woke up screaming. We gave him a minute to see if he would roll over and fall back to sleep, but no such luck. DH went upstairs and spent about 20 minutes cuddling with Micah and trying to coax him back to sleep. We tried a little more Tylenol, but Micah just needed to come down and cuddle with his Mommy.
We sat with him for a while longer, and around 3:15 we tried to put him back in the crib so we could go to sleep. No such luck! Micah started screaming his head off again, so we brought him back out of the crib and into bed with us. For another hour, that boy was going! He did not want to nap or cuddle, he wanted to play. Poor DH - I could barely stay awake, and someone needed to make sure Micah did not dive off of the bed. Around 4:15, DH tried to put him in the crib one last time. Micah definitely cried and fussed, but he eventually fell asleep (I think, perhaps, after I dozed off). He slept until 10:00 this morning. All I can say is...I'm glad the grumpy baby had daycare today! I hope tonight gets easier. I'm sure the poor little guy didn't feel well from the vaccinations...and his erupting teeth.
