baby not sleeping

i am having trouble with tristan sleeping he is up alot thru the night and normally he will sleep thru the night.. but the doctor said he is ok.. he just has thursh now...so he has to take nystain.. he hates it.. i don't blame him that stuff smells nasty..he already has a tooth coming in.. tristan can be up all day and want to stay up all night... i don't know what to do with him.. so sometimes i just give him a little oral gel and put him in bed and walk away.. can you believe that paul comes home in 1 month and 15 days.. ahhh i can't wait... tristan was bat baby for halloween as you can tell in the pictures... i was up for four hours lastnight writing back and forth with paul..

Loving a Sailor is not always gay,
Loving him truly is a high price to pay.
Its being alone with nothing to hold,
its being young but feeling so old,
Its having him whisper his love for you,
its whispering back you love him 86 plus two.
There comes a kiss and a promise of more
as his ship slowly glides away from the shore.
Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go, ..
while you're dying inside for wanting him so.
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears.
Its sending a letter with the stamp upside down
to your far-away love in a far-away town.
Its going to church to kneel and to pray,
and really meaning the things that you say.
Being in love will foster your dreams
of that far-away sailor your mind fairly beams.
Days go by, no mail for a spell,
you wait for some words to hear that he's well.
Then a letter arrives and you're given in,
to open his letter and smile with a grin.
Yes, he is well and misses you so,
and is filled with the love you want to know.
Weeks are like months and months are like years,
you wait for the day when you'll have no more fears.
Days go by slowly, how many have passed?
Then suddenly you realize its here at last!
Yes, loving a sailor brings bitterness and fears,
loneliness and sadness and despondent years.
Loving a Sailor isn't much fun
but its worth the price when the battle is won.
And remember he's thinking of you every day,
he's sad and he's lonely while so far away.
So love him and miss him and hold your head high,
Be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.
Your man's a seafarer, like that old ancient trader,
It's a high price you pay for loving a Sailor

finally four more days and my husband comes home...I got to talk to him yesterday for ten mintutes but that was enough to hear his voice and know that he is ok... he said he can't wait to come home... He even is now allowed to email me... so i actually get to talk to him more than ten mintutes!!! I am preparing a meal for when he gets home.. spaghetti with homemade meatballs, freah baked bread, salad, and then for later peanut butter cookies is favorite!!! AHhh when i talked to him yesterday i started crying that is how happy i was to hear from him... then i got butterflies in my tummy... butterflies with the baby inside.. makes your tummy feel like it's an ocean... anyways, i just wanted to let you guys know... they are safe and coming home soon.. yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy...
