You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me?!
Baby MPB is now is teething again. So in addition to his on-going high fever, he is now cutting through a tooth. And it is not going well.
The last 2 teeth he handled without even really noticing them. This tooth, on the other hand, not so much. I’m pretty sure it’s trying to suck any remaining enjoyment out of his life.
Baby MPB is officially not sleeping for more then 2 consecutive hours. Now, I realize for many new parents they are used to this, but we are not. We have been spoiled – since Baby MPB’s birth he has slept in a minimum of 4 hour chunks, and more recently typically he does about 8 hours consecutively. Seriously, I have no idea how other parents do this lack of sleep thing regularly, I am in awe of any parent out there who has battled for sleep night in and night out. But I digress.
As of now, Mr. MPB and I are both losing our minds with worry about this fever and now we have to attempt to be calm and collected without sleep.
The only good thing is that Baby MPB has some of his typical happy energy back – he is smiling and playing when he’s awake. And so long as we don’t try to feed him or try to put him to bed or try to give him Tylenol/Advil, he’s actually okay.
But clearly we have to try to feed him, put him to bed and give him Tylenol/Advil to keep his fever down.
Let me tell you, it is not a fun week over here in the MPB household.
