He is really having trouble with his sleep this past week. He goes down easily but then wakes up 45 minutes later and has a really hard time getting back to sleep. Tonight he was finally out enough for me to start my work again by about 9:15 or so after almost an hour of tossing and turning. He's not really awake---but he's not asleep either. He thrashes about, makes small cries (which turn louder quickly if I don't show up fast), and tries to climb in my lap. He likes to hold my hand or pat my tummy. He went through a phase like this a while back, so I know it's temporary. Maybe teething related, or he has a stuffy nose, or who knows. Poor baby---I just wish he could get comfortable and sleep.
Meanwhile, I had planned to sit downstairs and drink hot chocolate and press my nose against the window waiting for the snow we're supposed to get tonight, but I guess I'll have to be satisfied with regular check-ins with the NOAA weather web site.
