Happy by day, cranky by night

Lately, Porter has not been the best sleeper. Gradually he has gotten into a routine of getting up 4 - 5 times a night. And we have been playing along. At first he wasn't feeling good, and now he's teething, and we just keep thinking that whatever it is will get better. I know I'm creating bad habits, but it doesn't start as a bad habit. It just starts as checking on your crying baby in the middle of the night. And then you check on him again, and again. And you end up with very tired cranky parents day and night. He is cutting 4 top teeth, and we keep praying for the reverse tooth fairy to come at night, but none of them have officially popped through those gums yet. And we think he's going through a little growth spurt because he wants a bottle about 4:00am right now, and he hasn't done that in months. Anyway, I would have more disney pictures posted if I weren't trying to go to bed so early and get another 30 minutes to an hour of sleep. I really don't like to get up at 3:45am to start my day.
