I swear, I only post when it's high-drama time in the Smyrna household. It's not intentional...probably just my way of venting! It turns out that teething wasn't the only thing bothering Katie. After being up and down, up and down, up and down ALL NIGHT LONG (which equated to me not getting to sleep until 5:30 am), we learned that she has the beginning stages of a double ear infection! I guess that explains why she didn't want to lay down for long periods of time. On top of that, she has a cluster of canker sores on the bottom of her tongue. This is apparently caused by a chemical imbalance in the mouth when infection is present. In other words, she is a complete wreck.
So far, she has been asleep for an hour and 25 minutes, and has only woken up once. Thankfully, she just sat up, messed with her blanket and went back to sleep. I'm fully expecting to get up several times tonight...so, I should probably hit the hay.
I just want our little monkey to feel better, and SOON.
For tonight, I will leave you with a photo that was taken of her over the weekend at the Smyrna New Year's Eve festival for kids!
