Since evacuating Ike, Carter has slept in 5 different beds. Thats right, 5. Because of the frequent change in lodging, we had to get Carter to go to sleep by lying down with him. Now we are at home and he still flips out if we don't lie down with him. We have sort of gotten better. Now he just screams for 15 min. when we refuse to lie down with him. Thats not the big issue. . . the BIG issue is that he's waking up at least twice during the night screaming bloody murder. He cries, screams, and gets out of bed and knocks/hits on the door. We don't want him to wake up Megan, so one of us rushes in and lies down with him to stop his crying. This has got to STOP. Bo and I hardly get a whole nights rest, not to mention, we aren't getting the chance to be together because we usually just end up sleeping with him. What do we do? I would normally just have him cry it out, but he's been getting LOUD lately and I'm afraid of him waking up not only Meg, but the people below us. Oh Carter, please give us a break!
Ike definetly stinks, but I will say this because I keep forgetting to post this and I want it to go down in my records, that because of the storm I was able to have Bo at home for Meg's first 6 weeks of life. Yep, no work or school. It was AWESOME. I don't know what I would have done without Bo's help. Two kids are hard!
