Last night, Ruairidh was awake and sitting up in his cot at 04:00. He nodded off then did the same thing at 05:00 briefly. I finally got back to sleep to wake at 08:00 to see him on the monitor standing up in his cot, holding onto the side and peering over the edge. Who knew I could run so fast?? Time to lower the cot!
Tonight, he was harder to settle to sleep. He usually gurns for a few minutes and that’s that but tonight, I had to go back in and soothe him. He kept opening his eyes as if to check I was still there. He slept for a few hours then woke up crying. A sore cry. He settled when Gordon sat with him but wouldn’t go back to sleep. We eventually had to lift him. This is so unusual for him. He’s been off his food a wee bit too so we’re thinking it could be his teeth. He’s had Calpol but is still awake. He must be shattered.
I’m tired from two nights of broken sleep. The timing is shit - I have three sleeps left til I go back to work and I want them to be peaceful and restful for all of us. I sobbed like an idiot tonight. It’s all just a bit much when I’m sleepy.
