Halloween and Sleeplessness

I had a total blast on Halloween. We went up to Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie’s house for a quick dinner and then headed out at 6:30 for trick-or-treating. This was the first year I really “understood” what to do. I would RUN up and ring the bell and say “trick-or-treat” and then the people would open their door and I would just stand there all confused. It took me a few houses to understand tat I should wait until their doors were opened before I said “trick-or-treat”. I got LOTS of yummy candy, which Mommy and Daddy are limiting in moderation (while they scarf down all the GOOD stuff!). We went to about 30 houses before I got tuckered out. I really warmed up to the people about half way through and laid the charm on pretty thick. A few of my most memorable phrases were “May I have TWO?” “Happy Halloween”, “Where is your grandpa? (said to Grandma’s friend… I also kissed and hugged all her lawn ornaments!)”, “Pick me up (I got tired on the long breaks between houses)”. It was really a fun night and I am glad that we got to go out and the weather was actually not too bloody stinking hot! I took a quick bath at my grandparents house and then we all headed home for a story and night night time.

Other than that… I have officially adopted a new sleep schedule that Mommy is NOT pleased with. I am in by at my normal 8-9pm time frame and asleep by 9-10pm. Now I am up at 5am at the latest. I am waking up in the middle of the night and turning back on the light (that Mommy keeps shutting off!) then dozing off again. But the light is bright when I start to stir early so I think it is “DAY TIME!!! TIME TO WAKE UP MOMMY!”. *ugh* Which means I am siting at about 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I am however taking 2-3 hour naps to make up the difference.

Mommy is still trying to figure it out, and is about to give up and just accept the fact that I don’t need much sleep. I have been a happy boy and very energetic, hungry and playful. So it isn’t wearing on me yet, just Mommy.

Yesterday, while driving home from the playground with Mommy, I had a HORRID pain in my mouth. Mommy stopped the car to see why I was screaming at the top of my lungs ‘IT HURTS, MY TOOTH HURTS!” Well, I have a huge blood blister where my 2nd molar will eventually come through. Mommy said it must be close and that is why I am having a hard time sleeping. Hmmmm, I don’t know if i accept that answer just yet of if I would like to make Mommy and Daddy guess a bit more.

Daylight savings is this weekend and if I stick my my normal pattern of late Mommy will be rolling out of bed at 4 am!!!!! hehehe It is good to be the king!
