It's going to be a rough week. Craig took Murray to our pediatrician today (we love him) to find out if Murray's sleep difficulties are due to a medical condition . He checks out beautifully - no ear infection, cold, or head trauma from his recent fall. Turns out the problem is behavioral. Even though we have been letting him cry it out, we weren't going about it quite right. Dr. G. said that by no means do we set foot in his bedroom the first few nights. If this doesn't work, he gave us a few more options to try. Either way, we're purchasing ear plugs (an idea my therapist gave me yesterday). Hopefully, he'll find a way to soothe himself soon. Dr. G. reassured us that all four of his children did the exact same thing when it was time to say goodbye to the pacifier (which we did about a month ago).
Anyway, things are looking up. We're busy, busy, busy, but having daycare closed this week allows us to get some neglected housework up to date. I let things slide when Craig was away last week, and then slide even more what with state softball all weekend. It feels good to catch up.
We're almost to Wednesday already!
