Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Spoke too soon

Gage has been a BEAR at night lately! Last night he woke up at about 1:30 and wouldn't go back to sleep. I nursed him and he fell asleep in my arms, but as soon as I put him down he would cry and keep crying. I finally gave in and did something I said I would never do again- put him in bed with us. The rest of my night was shot. Gage slept until 5 or so and wanted to eat again. Tony was afraid to roll over for fear that he would roll on Gage and I kept worrying that the covers were over his face. I don't know what his deal is. He used to be so easy to put down at night and he stayed asleep all night. Even when I don't get up with him he still wakes up and fusses now. I am starting to believe the people who think he may be trying to cut teeth, although I can't see or feel anything. Either that or he's going through another growth spurt- I hope he gets longer this time instead of just heavier!

The next doctor visit is Feb 5 to have some tests then we see the urologist Feb 8. I have been dreading this appointment since we left the NICU. Please pray that Gage can empty his bladder and that we won't have to do anything different in that department.

He'll sleep again. Ryan doesn't sleep at well when she's cutting a tooth. You never know. It's hard to really tell if there is a tooth until it's popped through. Hang in there. We've all been there.

Those teeth start bothering them long before they surface, so it could be teeth. And I never could feel them until they were just about to break the skin.
