The Weekend

Lots of content today, by the way. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing for you is still to be determined.

Eli 4.3 did wind up getting sick--on Wednesday. He had the cold/cough combo, and it followed the familiar pattern of being better during the day, then worse at night. He started waking up at night and couldn't go back to bed because of the coughing, so we'd go downstairs and put on one of his shows and he'd fall asleep sitting up in the La-Z-Boy.

So here's when we got up.
Wednesday morning: 6:00 a.m.
Thursday morning: 5:30 a.m.
Friday morning: 5:00 a.m.
Saturday morning: 3:30 a.m.
Sunday morning: 3:00 a.m.

As you can see from the progression, by this Thursday I was expecting him to get up half an hour before he went to bed. Fortunately for all of us, though, he started getting better yesterday afternoon and slept through the night. We hope to sleep more than two hours a night on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.

Here's one side effect: we went downstairs Sunday morning at three and turned on a recording of the Disney cartoon version of Tarzan. I watched the first half hour, then drifted in and out with Eli, so I'd sleeep for fifteen minutes, watch for five, and repeat. Then, when the show was over, I restarted it. Eli was sleeping through, but I'd still wake up every fifteen minutes, so I've got this surreal, disjointed memory of Tarzan as some kind of jungle version of West Side story. I expected one of the gorillas to break into song with "When you're an ape, you're an ape all the way."
