We had a rough night, too. Aedan has stated having night terrors. The doctor says it's normal for them to start around this age, but they're awful. He wakes up and screams bloody murder for about 10 minutes. Completely inconsolable. Then he goes back to sleep. And I have trouble getting back to sleek because they freak me out.

Oh, no! My little nephew has night terrors too. He's had them since he was 6 months old though. They're awful. I wondered, how does a baby even have nightmares if he's never had a bad experience? But I guess that's not what night terrors are about. I hope Aedan's don't last long, poor him and poor you :(.

Hi everyone! Sorry I vanished! Chanukkah ate me! HAHA we've been really busy!

Today we took down the vintage Christmas tree we had up and put away our Hanukkah decorations. My living room feels bigger now lol.

I've been working on spinning some new fibre since I finished my last yarn. Did I share photos with you of it finished? I don't remember.

HAPPY 2020 to you all!! I hope we're in for a good one.

Night terrors are no fun. I used to get them as a kid and mine were awful but I also had a first responder family and had been exposed to stuff a young child should not be exposed to to be honest. I'm not surprised I still have bad issues with anxiety as an adult.

Where my cats are
DD has night terrors for a little bit. We figured out they were triggered when she was over tired. Thankfully that phase didn’t last too long.

I’m hoping I’ll get to work on a jigsaw puzzle I recently started. Its a Christmas one; so the sooner the better.

The doctor said the way to tell the difference between a night terror and a nightmare is how the kid acts when he wakes up. If he wakes up acting scared, it was a nightmare. If he wakes up and doesn't seem to remember, it was a night terror. So, I'm glad he doesn't remember, but it makes me feel horrible that my baby is terrified and there's nothing I can do.

Oh! And something interesting. Apparently, I'm a mutant. I talked to my OB about my chicken pox immunity - my inability to catch it and my inability to develop antibodies after the vaccine. She said some people have slight mutations that prevent certain diseases from being able to attach or something; I don't remember her exact wording. So it would seem that I have a beneficial mutation. Can I join the x-men now?

Here's the yarn I spun up!

61 yards of 3 ply WW *size 4* yarn. I'm now spinning up some really pretty Merino wool that makes me think of Ice Cream

Alicia88 Alicia88 I'm glad he doesn't remember. I think remembering would make it worse! Also I've heard of that. My mom was naturally immune to chicken pox!

MoochNNoodles MoochNNoodles The 12 days of Christmas doesn't end until the 6th so you can get your puzzle started before then and it counts haha

My sister has a natural immunity to smallpox. She got the shot 5 times, her body kept rejecting it, so they gave up.
