Things that go AHHHHHHHHHHH in the night

Last night, I went to bed at my normal time (around 8pm). I was happy in my crib enjoying some good sleep. Two hours later something woke me up and I started screaming at the top of my lungs. Mommy said she though someone pulled my toes off! I was screaming and Mommy couldn’t figure out why! Not hungry, not wet, not dirty, nothing pinching, nothing poking… Every time she laid be down I would just HOWL at the top of my lungs. Mommy thought I might be gassy so she was trying to work that out by doing bicycle with my legs… I would just go stiff as a board and scream. Mom relocated me to the living room and closed all the doors on the way so my screaming didn’t wake big brother. My burped me…nada!

Mommy sat and rocked me, tried to nurse me again, did bicycle a few more times…. NADA! Mommy was patting my back all over thinking maybe it was a HUGE burp!?

Finally she and Daddy thought… “A warm bath might do it?” So Mommy drew a warm bath in the kitchen sink (since she didn’t want to take me to my bathroom for fear I would wake Breighton). She stripped me down and plopped me in. I was still upset but my screaming resided a BIT. The my back aching started again and tears were streaming from my eyes. Daddy gave up and went back to bed. Mommy was close to tears as I was acting like I was in so much pain. Mommy moved me a little in the sink so I didn’t bump my head… suddenly I let out… the teeniest tinniest most itty bitty *burp*. My entire body went limp and I was quiet.

ALL THAT for an itty bitty tiny BURP!? Needless to say, Mommy got me out… diapered and dressed and put me back in my bed. I slept for 4 hours before I got hungry then went back to bed until 8:30 this morning!
