The past couple of days have been rough. I don't know if it's just because he's still stick, and his ear is still hurting, or if it's because he's growing and changing and trying to reach new milestones, but I feel like I don't know this Aidan. I used to know exactly why he was crying and how to make it better. I could tell you when he was going to eat, and when he would nap and I knew exactly how to get him to sleep. Now, I have no idea why he cries. Naps only happen after much frustration and tears, sometimes from both of us. I can't nurse him in the living room anymore, especially if Nathan is here. Aidan gets so distracted, he'll take a few swallows, pop off, look around and then turn back to nurse. And if I take him into the bedroom, he cries thinking that he's missing out on something (at least, I imagine that's why he's crying).
He has been so cranky lately, I don't know what to do anymore to make him happy. And I especially hate not knowing why he's cranky. Is it his ear? Teeth? Just a new stage? I don't know. And I hate not having the answers.
