Sleepless in Seattle

Nothing exciting has really happened the last couple days.  Simeon is still not sleeping much at night, which means I’m not either.  Last night we even tried giving him Tylenol with codine, but it didn’t help much.  After trying to get him to sleep for 1 – 1.5 hours, we finally went to my bed and tried feeding there.  2.5 hours later I woke up and discovered Ari still hadn’t come upstairs.  I put Simeon in his bed and went to get Ari.  From that point on, Simeon was waking me up every hour.  *sigh*  I really hope we can fix this trend soon.  It’s not like he’s sleeping during the day at all.  I think he’s been taking 2 or 3 catnaps during the day, but nothing longer than 30 minutes.

Tegan Time
Tegan came to visit Simeon when I was trying to put him down last night.  She came in, managed to get up onto the changing pad and watched over us.  The voice-activated nightlight caught her by surprise the first time it started beating, but she eventually just took her seat again and watched me bounce with Simeon.

Simeon Stuff
My mother-in-law is convinced that Simeon will cause me problems the same way Ari caused her problems.  Apparently in pre-school, Ari wouldn’t stay on his own mat.  Going to a montessori school, each kid had a mat and worked at their own pace.  Ari’s pace was to finish his and then help other kids – isn’t that helpful?  Along those veins, Simeon is already figuring out how to associate things.  A week ago Monday I took out this butterfly toy Grandma Pernick gave him.  A total of 2 days with the toy and he figured out that you push a button and it plays music. *big grin*
