We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Zombie land

There hasn't been a lot of energy around the house these past few days to do things like blog or anything. It all started a few days ago when Alder started to get well cranky. Cranky with this kid means half the time he's all smiles but the other half he's crying. The thing is these halves are sort of interspersed so he'll be playing and laughing and move two inches and start to cry. I know something is wrong but I can not figure out what it is.

Last night he slept okay from eight until eleven and then he was up until three crying a lot. He finally fell asleep after I danced and sung with him in my arms for about fifteen minutes. But today has been really tough for him a lot of tears and being held. Of course this means not only is something upsetting him but he is also exhausted.

Kevin and I are walking zombies today. Neither of us could take a nap because when ever anyone lay down he would start to cry. He's sleeping now hopefully it will be a long sleep both for him and us.
