I got my baby back, baby back, baby back!

This poor, neglected blog. Sigh. It's not just the blog, it's facebook, and babycenter, too. I needed to unplug for awhile to devote my attention to real life stuff. I hate when life gets in the way of my socializing!

February was a rough month for Eon. I'm not sure what was going on with him. He started waking up at night, every night, and was just  kind of whiny and demanding. Basically, he acted like a 2yo and he's really good at it! More concerning to me was that he seemed to have gone backwards with communication. He lost most of the signs he was consistently using and almost all of the words he used, too. It was disheartening. Every sign he even attempted to imitate looked exactly like "stop". 

In the last few days, he's started sleeping all night, seems more engaged and happy, and more importantly, has begun signing again....imitation and spontaneous! I have no idea what was going on with him, but I feel like he's back and I am beyond blessed!

  1. Tara, I remember when Jessie was very young that whenever she was sick/not feeling well, not sleeping well we would seem to take steps backward. I am happy to be able to tell you that as she got older we don't see that happen in the same way anymore. I remember someone telling me that when they are learning some new gross motor skill that some of the other (fine motor and speech)skills might not move along at the same pace. Now, when Jessie doesn't feel well we don't accomplish as much with school but doesn't seem as drastic as it seemed to be when she was younger.

    I so wanted to say YES! YES! YES! when you said you hate when real life gets in the way of socializing :) As a mom,it just does, so I knew exactly what you meant :)
