Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

For the very few people that actually read this blog, I am sorry about my absence lately. I have no other excuse, other than pure exhaustion...which correlates into blog laziness.

A few weeks ago, TJ came down with a stomach bug. It started on a Tuesday night, and lasted through Friday...LONG bug! Then, the following Tuesday, Tristan started the bug. I stayed home from work Wednesday and Thursday, tried to go in Friday, but only made it 1/2 the day before the daycare called for me to come back to pick him up. Thankfully, Thomas and I never caught it!

Then, after the stomach bug, Tristan grew horns, sprouted fangs, and turned into a monster. Usually, we put him in his bed awake, around 8pm, and he puts himself to sleep...well, not the last week! He screamed this blood curdling scream during bed time, then has been waking up around 12:30 to scream for another hour or so, then again at 4:30-ish. I told Thomas, "he has to be sick...no human-born child acts like this!" I honestly think it has been his teeth coming in...he broke all 4 top teeth at the same time!

I think we finally may be on the up-swing...back to normalcy. So, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with Tristan's 11 month update and pictures (since he turns ONE on the 31st!!!)


  1. Ugh, poor you!!! My Hannah does the wake up in the middle of the night inconsolable thing too, usually when she's teething! It stinks, I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. oh my.. I would be absent too! Hope everyone is feeling much better! Love and miss you!

  3. I've had the hardest time commenting lately. I think I changed my settings on Internet Explorer, and now I'm paying for it.

    Hopefully, it'll work today.

    Sorry to hear everyone was sick, but glad to hear all is getting better and back to normal. I always enjoy hearing about your sweet family. Take care and rest up! Have a great weekend!
