This was how our day went today. It started bad because last night he slept so poorly!!! Brian got up with him 3 times before he went to bed, then I got up with him 3 or 4 more times after that. This doesn't include the times I thought he wasn't crying enough for me to go check on him. So, we're all tired but when Marshall is tired, he just can't cope with life! Poor guy. He cried over every little thing today and when he wasn't crying, he was angry. I tried to get him to take a nap by swinging him in his Airwalker Swing. It's the ONLY way he will ever take a nap. I thought he was asleep but 10 minutes later, he was calling for me. Strange..
After he had a HUGE fit about not wanting to dress himself, I finally picked him up, put him on my lap, held him very tight, and just rocked him for a bit. That calmed him down. I could feel him relax. I heard him sigh. He was practically ASKING for deep pressure. Yesterday, while waiting for the TRAX train, he actually asked me to do his "tens" on him. He calls deep compressions tens because we do 10 compressions. Cute huh?
I couldn't find anything that made him happy today. He even kicked his brother in the crotch for no reason. It's frustrating when he does that. It's sad to look at his face and see the dark circles under his eyes. He's exhausted but he sleeps so restlessly. I hope tonight goes better for him. So far so good. Cross your fingers for me. Nah, forget the fingers, can you pray for me instead?
