I am not sure if you have started teething or if you were just in a cranky mood but your emotions and actions were all over the place. When I first came home from work you were calm and playing with your toys with a big smile on your face but by the time dinner came around you became cranky and screamed quite a bit. You would sit and eat, and then out of nowhere scream and cry and then calm down eat some more and scream and cry again. You wanted nothing to do with me but rather just wanted mommy yet despite this you ate you dinner with ease. Alot of drool followed, alot of whining for the rest of the evening but ultimately you ate everything we gave you.
By the time Bedtime came around, things got even worse. It took mommy almost 2 hours to settle you down for bedtime before you were finally out. Or so we thought. Daddy could not sleep at all last night so I just sat in bed and listened to you sleep away. Waking every 10 minutes or so and then dozing back off to your dreams. Then around 4:00 am you seemed to want to wake for good. Woke up screaming and crying and yelling for us to come and get you. It took mommy another hour and a half to put you back down to sleep before you finally awoke for good at 7:00 am.
As I left for work and came into your room and kissed you goodbye as you sat there crying with your hands up. It absolutely breaks my heart to see you like that and sets me off on the wrong foot for work knowing that you are either in pain or in some sort of discomfort. Oh Monkey....you've been so good of late, why this sudden turnaround. Mommy is just a few weeks away from starting work again and it is as if we have to restart all the training all over again.
We love you monkey.....don't you ever forget that.
