For 4 days our household was kind of on emergency standby. Ruby had teething issues and a nasty bug, which kept her awake and screaming much of the past week (night and day).

It's funny how standards change when you've got a sick, irritable baby. The dishes and laundry were the first to go. Then it was showers and teeth brushing. Then it was pottying and cloth diapers (you can get away with changing disposables a lot less, and considering how much she would scream during changes, I decided even one less change was a great thing). And I expected no naps and screaming wakings every half hour at night. On a normal night, I was distressed if she happened to go to bed after 7:30 or wake before midnight. This week I was ecstatic if she went to sleep at all, and if she stayed asleep for longer than 15 minutes.

Anyway, the good news is, she's getting better! Last night, there were a few wakings, but no wailings, and she's down for a morning nap already. Mmmmm.
