Well we weren’t up at3:45 am. But, we were up at 7:45 pm, 8:35 pm, 12:30 pm and finally, 5:17 am. And, at that point, he was up for good. I tried putting E back to sleep but it just wasn’t happening. I could hear his belly growling so we made breakfast {poor thing}.

However, we finally know why he is getting up and not eating. Yesterday, he had his 15 month appointment {I just can’t believe it}. While the doctor was checking him over, I mentioned his new teeth, him not eating, and how he was getting up all hours of the night. When she looked in his mouth, I was horrified. It was covered in blisters! No wonder the poor kid doesn’t want to eat.

Would you want to eat?

Diagnosis: Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (ew!). I am sure he caught it at daycare.  One of the many joys of daycare!

Thankfully, since he already has the blisters, he can still go to school. Although, I’m really starting to rethink wanting to send him today. Mommy needs a nap!

Oh and in case you were wondering, he weighs 27 lbs, 6 ounces and is 30 1/4 inches long!
