Quick Vent - what happened to my good little sleeper? He two out of the last four nights has woken up crying for no reason and its hard to get him to stop. I can't rock him cause all he does is flip and flop. He kinda cuddles but he keeps changing positions. I took him to bed and let him fall

Ella- the september plan sounds great! We have a wedding in november, and it's adults only, so I think that will be Fede's first night without us. I think we'll leave him with my IL's. Oh! nad congratulations on the succesful party! 40 years... what a wonderful marriage!!!
Erica- I'm sorry that Jonah is actiung out. on the other hand, I suppose it's only normal if you think about the two major life changes your family is going through. Although I'm not a BTDT, I will say something. I think spending quility time with him is a great advice, but also, I would make sure that he feels important and part of the family all the time. For example, if you are nursing Charlotte, you could use that time to tell jonah a little story, or you could draw something for him so he can paint it while you BF... the poin is to make him feel that you are there with him, even if your hands are busy. Asking him to help could also be a good idea. And remember, i fyou feel like you are loosing your little boy, think that he probably feels like he is loosing you.
Christine- Girl! I'm so sorry you've had another abcess! It really isn't fair! Is it healing by now?
Andi- the girls are adorable!!! They really look alike! is there a way to tell if they are identical?
Kate- LOL! your comment reminded me of my mom... by the time the summer was ending she would say "where is school when I need it?!?!?!?!" (we were 4 kids!)
Cassie- I think it is pretty normal, because he dedfinitely misses his daddy and his old home. Just be patient with him. If he wakes up crying and kicking, just let him cry a little and kick, he will get tired of it and then you can try singing a song, offering water or cuddling. That usually works with fede.
