It is 1 a.m. and Thomas has been up and cheerful since eleven. Cheerful except when I try to put him in his crib, which makes him shriek, Right now he's playing with trains in the dark behind me. I am not sure how to convince him to go back to bed. I think part of the problem was that to stop the shrieking I tried to nurse him to sleep in our bed, which only sometimes works, and sometimes produces Happy Awake Baby Who Wants to Play.
I think we'll probably have to buy Asim and Nat some earplugs and just put up with a couple of totally awful night, because this, currently, sucks.
