Hueston (and, hence, his parents) has (have?) been having real trouble in the sleeping department. Several nights of waking every hour have really taken their toll, and we were running out of ideas.

He has also been having some gastrointestinal issues, and yesterday I tried a new remedy: flax oil. He took a dropperful as if it tasted great, and I mixed a little in with oatmeal as well.

Voila: one really overdue diaper. (I'll spare you the details.)

And, last night, we made it through with only two minor interruptions - at 11:30, when I was able to rub his tummy and shhhhhh him back to sleep, and at 12:45, when The Miracle of the Orajel was repeated (from crying back to sleep almost instantaneously). We all woke up at 7:30 this morning.

So, therefore, HALLELUJAH.


  1. ...and Amen! What a relief to all of you.

  2. Ah... that's great! I feel your pain. Emmett's been sick all weekend, which means being up a lot at night, no naps and a v-e-r-y cranky toddler. We are so tired :)
