I've got my baby back, baby back, baby back...

No, I'm not eating ribs, even though today participating Chili's are donating 100% of its profits to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (in case you don't have dinner plans yet).

I'm talking about getting my happy baby boy back today. Squiggles has been out of sorts for over a week now, and he's just now coming back online. He's had a stomach bug for almost 2 weeks, I think he may be starting to teethe (he gnaws on anything he can get his little hands on, including, well, his little hands), and we had to deal with Chef being out of town for most of this last week. Not a good combination of events, I tell ya.

Needless to say, naps have been few and far between, and he couldn't even be counted on to go to sleep very well even at night (I don't even want to get started on the piercing screams from Friday night that prompted a call to my parents for help...all I have to say is that I'm glad I have family close by and that I'm not a single parent). I was beginning to wonder if this new, fussy baby had permanently replaced my Squiggles!

Then, today I saw a glimpse of the Squiggles I remembered! He slept great last night (9 1/2 hours), woke up in a splendiferous mood this morning, and has, for the most part, fallen back into his regular nap/feeding schedule! Praise the Lord!
