Additionally...

I am functioning on about 4 and a half hours of sleep.

Last night at 12:08 Andy woke up screaming and crying. We went through the whole list of options: changed his diaper, offered food, offered a drink, held him, rocked him, and sang to him. Nothing worked. No fever. No nose running, no teething. We put baby orajel in his mouth thinking maybe he had a toothache. He screamed for an hour straight.

Steve and I brought him into our bedroom thinking that he had a nightmare and something in his room was scaring him. We distracted him with a Blues Clues video. He was up until a little after 4. Thus, I was up until a little after 4.

I came in late to work. I feel like ass. And now I have this group drama to try to ameliorate.

Ugh, that sucks. :( Hopefully you'll be able to go to bed early tonight and get some sleep.

He resisted sleep again... finally went down around 9. Argh!

Steve and I were out as soon as Idol went off.

Yikes! Poor kid (and you guys too!) What makes kids do that? Did you ever figure out what was wrong?

I think he had a nightmare and woke up to a dark room and was just afraid.
