Rough Wednesday

 This face about sums up our day!  The last couple days Colton has been super fussy and not sleeping well.  Normally he is a great sleeper and a pretty content and happy baby.  Yesterday I started thinking he has an ear infection.  He was fussy, not taking his bottle well, refused his wubby and touching his ears.  
 I called the doctor first thing this morning and they were able to work him in first thing.  I would have bet money that it was his ears.  She said his throat was red and has some congestion but his ears look perfect!  I was shocked.  He does have a top tooth coming in so she blamed his fussiness and sleeplessness on teething.  
 It was a rough day around here.  In fact, one of the roughest i've had in a long time.  

Colton woke up at 6:30 this morning, ugh! Most days when I put him down for his naps he goes right to sleep or plays quietly in his bed for a few minutes and then falls asleep.  Since he has refused his wubby, since his top gums are bothering him, it's making it very hard for him to fall asleep.  I ran to walgreens this afternoon to get some baby orajel and teething tablets.  
Thankfully tonight he took his wubby and fell sleep pretty easily.  Praise the Lord for that.  Hoping tomorrow is a much better day!
