So, it rained/hailed for the first time tonight in a while here (and it was actually pretty cold!) and Sam just so happened to be playing outside when the short downpour started. When I heard it start I went out in the backyard and he was standing in the middle of the grass with a huge smile on his face while he let the freezing cold rain and hail poor all over his little self. I kept trying to beckon him to come back under the patio but he wouldn't. He's so funny that way. He loves getting wet, even if it's miserable and uncomfortable and cold! Definitely doesn't get that from mommy! Anyway, when he finally came back under the patio I put his hood on, but it was too late...he was already drenched. He had hail and rain soaking his head. Hopefully he doesn't get a cold. :)
Well, yesterday didn't go as well without his binky but it was because he was teething too. Perfect timing, right? I guess there never is a perfect time though with kids. He has done MUCH better today though. He hasn't asked for it once, though when he woke from his nap he was cranky for a really long time...again, I think due to the teething. He still woke up once in the middle of the night crying his head off, but it wasn't as bad as the first night, and honestly, I'm not too sure it is even because of the binky. He has been having this problem for the last two weeks or so, so I am associating it with something else unknown at this point. I am thinking nightmares or night terrors or getting scared. I have talked to a lot of people that have told me their kids have experienced this at the same age. Poor thing. I don't know what else to do for him. I hope the stage doesn't last long! I am definitely getting him a night light when I am in town for my dr. appt. tomorrow!
