What Child is this

who laid to rest ....

The medicine has been stopped. So has the nig.ht te.rrors and restless nights. I placed this child who resembled my MT to bed tonight when I got home from work and he went in the crib and went to sleep. No fussy no muss ...

MT seems to be back to normal .. Teething like a banshee. (our norm) Runny nose and drool ..It's hard to tell the difference really. I am just so thankful that we are sleeping again. However long it lasts

Sippy Cup - *making sure his lil ears cannot hear me type this 3 rooms away sleeping so I do not jinx this. He purposely drank water out of his sippy cup 4 times today. (4 sips 2 different times) 2 times on our way home after the park playgroup and 2 times while eating lunch. I almost fell OVER. I consider this progress. Hoping this repeats tomorrow and here after so I can stop self inducing fear of dehydration since we live in a warm (read sometimes hot and muggy) climate.

  • I walked in the door after work tonight and I swear to you that my child said "Hi" and waved to me.. My husband witnessed this it to. I was floored. I wonder if he will do it again ..
  • He has been waving "bye bye" for weeks now. Just not when prompted .. on his terms (as most everything is lately)
  • He can clap if he wants to. But only if HE wants to.

My parents have a wooden swing on their porch. MT adores being outside on their porch and swinging. He has always had to sit in someones lap until we discovered a new use for this. We strapped the back/bottom straps to the swing and buckled him in .. oh My Word .. The squeals! He loves it.

Sorry I missed commenting on your last post, but I did read it and have been thinking about you. This post makes me think that the clouds are parting a bit and the sun is beginning to shine again on your sweet, sweet boy. He is just so adorable with that big smile of his!

You are doing an AMAZING job Farah.

Oh how I love, love, love this boy of yours! I'm so glad he's feeling better now and back to his old self.

And yup, I've spotted another twinsy outfit!

Amanda said...

Could he be any cuter? Too sweet with his swinging squeals!

Hooray for some good rest for all!!! I really hope it continues!

Sooooo....a word? With meaning? Said on purpose? I'm just sayin' ;-) Soon that little guy is going to be talking your ears off.

YAY for sleep and the sippy cup! Lemy too seemed interested in the sippy cup this week while play with an extra one I have. She kept taking the spout and trying to drink from it, so I put milk into her actual cup. She had a little bit which is progress. Its certainly better than her banging it on the table and throwing it on the floor! :P

Hoping that the sleep continues! He is SO.DAMN.CUTE!

AJ's mommy said...

Can he get any cuter? That is just adorable.

I am glad he is doing better, the sippy cup, etc.

So do you think teething and runny nose go hand in hand? I am asking because AJ's nose seems to be running alot and his sitter told me she thinks it may be due to teething. I am thinking maybe it might be related?

Heather said...
