mommy & baby not feeling well

So we've been lucky enough that Matthew hasnt gotten sick at all in the first 3 months. Which means that except for the usual occurrence of getting into a routine, once he goes to sleep he normally only wakes up once during the middle of the night. Usually its just to pop his pacifier back into his mouth, but sometimes a diaper change is necessary. Well Sunday night was different. He woke up about 4 different times, but I seemed to be able to get him back to sleep fairly quickly. Still, I could tell something was up. Over the weekend my sis and I noticed he would occasionally pull on his left ear (sign of an earache?) But I swear, I know most kids arent completely in the teething stage this early, but my lil boy has been drooling like no-tomorrow for a couple of weeks now. So needless to say, I kinda just chalked it up to teething.
All day yesterday my sis (who takes care of him during the day) said she could tell he was out of whack. His morning nap was like 2.5-3 hours long. Normally she can only  get him to sleep for 45mins maybe 1hr. And on top of that, Ive started feeling sick. My eyes are itchy and I cant stop sneezing. Great. So I knew it was going to be an eventful evening last night.
We actually all went out to dinner for my parents anniversary, and surprisingly Matthew did pretty well throughout dinner, but I could tell he was extremely tired. So by time we got home he was crying way more than normal. He feel asleep on my chest for a little while and I decided even though it was earlier than his normal bedtime I should probably just put him to sleep anyway. So we put him in his pj's and off to bed he went.........only he woke up around 1am and decided he didnt want to go back to sleep. Plusalso, now mommy is dragging because I feel like crap.
baby + mommy + not feeling well = no beuno
After 1.5 hour and a bottle, some Tylenol, and lots of rocking I was able to get him to fall back asleep. When hubby got up for work this morning he asked if I wanted to bring him in the room with me and I figured I would just let him sleep. Which lasted only about 20mins and then I brought him into my room with me. Needless to say, all he needed was mommy & daddys bed ;)
