Send caffeine and a nanny

Is there such a thing a a 21 month sleep regression? If so I'm in it


Sunday night Grayson was up from 2 until 4:30 we finally fell back asleep at 4:45 only for my alarm to go off at 5:30. He got to stay snuggled in bed with daddy while I sucked down caffeine like it was my job, so I could ya know do my job.


Tuesday night even worse he went down at 8:30 and was up at 12:00 until 2:30 when I finally shut the monitor off and fell asleep. I don't know when he fell asleep but I know he woke up at 5:45. I was a zombie all day at work and even had a soda at 2:30 just to keep me awake. That soda was not part of my new eat healthy plan but it helped me avoid falling asleep at my desk.


Tuesday night he slept from 8 until 2:00 was up for 30 and then back down until 6 by far our best night and I woke up feeling like a million dollars with 6 hours of consecutive sleep. 

Now last night back to the no sleeping. Ahhhhh it's killing me. There is nothing worse than hearing your baby crying "mommy up! Moooooooommmmmmyyyyyy uuuuuuuppppp!"
Truly heart breaking. After crying it out for 30 minuets he slept until 6. But chopped up sleep like that does nothing for me. I'm so tired and woke up with a headache.

If I had to guess it's his eye teeth 2 have broken through but other 2 just look plain painful


The eating is touch and go too. He refuses some of the foods he normally eats. It's a success if we can get a fruit and some yogurt in him. One thing I'm thankful for is that he is still drinking his milk so at least there is that. 


We are thick in the 2 year old attitude change. His way is the only way. He was like wrestling a greased pig trying to get his boots in him the other day because he wanted to wear sneakers. However it is -10 here so boots are a must.
 Plus now after being gone from daycare for 2 weeks (that's just how it worked with Christmas and our schedules) he cries at drop off. My kid has not cried at drop off in months. Now he acts like I'm sending him to the torture chamber. Thank goodness Miss. Linda just takes him right from me and reads to him. I'm always told when I pick him up that he is having great days and talking up a storm.


This too shall pass. Right?
