Rough Seas

This week has been a rough week for all of us. E. has been teething or experiencing severe separation anxiety at nap and bedtimes. He will sit and cry in his bed. I soothe him and distract with toys and then leave. He is happy and quiet for about 5 minutes, then suddenly starts to wail again! We have been up until 11PM with the exception of last night (in bed at 9P!!).

Do I hold him? Comfort him? Let him scream? Ahhhh...I don't know! I feel like we have tried everything...chewing on ice, Motrin, teething tablets, distraction, love...what next? I just pray he feels better soon...we are all exhausted.
