I Stand Corrected

As Lori MacBlogger pointed out in yesterday's comments, someone does like an entire post dedicated to my boobs - AK!

She woke up at 5 this morning and was pretty much inconsolable unless I was holding her. No amount of Orajel, Tylenol (okay, SAFE amount) or back rubbing was going to put this munchkin back to sleep. When I got into the shower at 6:45 the Hoos took her downstairs to try and feed her without much success.

Only when I came down around 7 and offered some smoke from my "baby crack pipe" did she settle down. So much so that after a few pulls she looked up at me with an angelic smile and pulled herself up to give me a big kiss. WHAT A STINKER.

The Hoos keeps asking me if she has an ear infection. To be honest, I don't think so. Sleeping from 8pm until 5am, no fever, and no reaction when we pull on her ears, seems to say clear ears to me.

My new hypothesis is that the rain is to blame (Milli Vanilli anyone?). All over Facebook and on the playground moms are complaining about cranky children waking up at odd and unfortunate hours.

I believe in the power of jinxes, so we will not discuss the upcoming weather, but I will ask for prayers that the rain go to where it is needed and stay the heck away from here for a while!

Well... I feel a LITTLE better that I'm not the only one whose kid woke up like 4 times last night.
So I can blame the weather?
Hope your little one gets back to her old self soon!
