This Guy

has his days and nights mixed up. I think our neighbors hate us.


Our second night with Eli I was concerned because he kept waking up all sweaty. I was so nervous he had a fever, but when I checked his temperature he was just fine. I did some research on the internet and that really got me worried because some sites said infants who sweat in their sleep are at a high risk for SIDS. I talked to our pediatrician about it at Eli's first appointment. He seemed a bit concerned as well but told me not to freak out about it. It's in the Thomas genes to be sweaty, so I convinced myself he inherited my sweatiness.

A few days after his appointment my mom figured out his "sweat" was really a mishap from Eli's new parents not putting his diaper on tight enough. What a relief. Eli's such a good baby considering how clueless his parents are.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that he hasn't inherited this smart grandmother's sweaty genes.

I think Logan did inherit the Thomas genes. He constantly has sweaty feet even when he's cold. If Eli has the gene he'll be in good company.

ps maybe if he still inherits your sweatyness, he can just become best friends with baby powder haha.
