Henry granted us a reprieve last night. Chris and I got about 8 hours of sleep last night with the following two caveats
1) this 8 hours was separated in 2-3 hours bouts, not all at once
2) We went to bed at 6:30pm and got up around 8:30am
He was just a perfect angel yesterday which makes me wonder what was wrong the night before. I believe it may have been what I had eaten for dinner which was lasagna. I had it again yesterday morning to see if it was that and Henry was fussy all day so I’m cutting out lasagna for a while. Unfortunately lasagna is a multi-layer food so pinpointing the ingredient within that upset him is going to be tough. My guess is the onions that were in it. I know for certain it’s not the cheese since I’ve been eating quite a fair bit of it since giving birth and it doesn’t seem to bother him.
Last night instead we had a quick cheese fondue straight out of the warming pot with a baguette that we ripped with our hands while watching old episodes of ER on our laptop and hoping we’d have time to finish before Henry woke up from his nap. Then to top it off, we went to bed at 6:30pm. Chris had planned the fondue for Valentine’s day so even though we were both overwhelmed with lack of sleep and a fussy baby the night before, he took the time to highlight February 14th for me. What a sweety!
