This is the infamous stop sign that Callum and I tag each time we take a walk. He was very proud of making a point to tag it today. :)

Today we started out in the opposite direction, following Logan and Daddy who were on bikes. Going the opposite direction means we don't come up to our stop sign until the end of our walk, which also means I sneakily got him to walk around the block. ;-)

Unfortunately he had a sleepless night last night. He kept waking up several times throughout the night and insisting to me that he wasn't tired. At roughly 2am, I heard him get up, go to the bathroom, and then instead of heading back to bed, I heard him walk toward the living room. I waited a few minutes wondering if he was looking for me, but he didn't whine or moan for me once.

And then I heard him chatting and LAUGHING. I got up, walked toward the other end of the house, where all the lights in the den were on bright, and he was just sitting content on the couch, playing a game on his iPad!

We gave him his nightly dose of Benedryl to try and get him a little sleepy (I had skipped it last night because he had fallen asleep before I could give it to him) and then I cradled him in my arms, in our bed, the rest of the night.

Callum was having a rougher night tonight as well. His belly was just extremely taught and swollen as it tends to get by the end of the day.

So, while rubbing his belly in bed, I said to him:

I'm sorry you're not feeling well Buddy.

That's ok.

I wish I could make you feel better.

But you are. And the doctors are too.


Wow. Love this kiddo of ours.
