Since last night, Paolo has been fussing and complaining a lot. And with good reason. His teething is in full force, and he has a runny nose and watery eyes. As Natalie puts it, this is the TRIFECTA OF CRYING. I could not have put it better. So we have treated him with the trifecta of baby medicine: teething tablets, tylenol, and lullabies.
My poor baby has never been sick before and he is really not liking it one little bit. Last night, he was so tired and uncomfortable last that he fussed WHILE he was sleeping. And then I spent a lot of time last night singing “Hush Little Baby,” which is his favorite lullaby in English. Because he is congested, nursing is difficult. So on top of it all, he’s kind of hungry. Luckily I just got him down for a nap, which he sorely needed after being awake all night. I suppose that is my cue to brush my teeth and make some coffee while I can!
