15 months Old!

O is 15 months old now, yay! That also marks the 15 month anniversary of me not sleeping.  I know it will end and he will sleep through the night, but I wouldn't be sad if that day came sooner than later.  Until he turned one he would wake up a couple times a night but fall back to sleep relatively easy and I'd put him back in his crib for a little while.

In January he started a new trick where he'd be sound asleep in my arms but would wake up screaming the instant he touched his crib mattress.  I'd go back to holding him and eventually it turned into me spending 80% of my night holding him on the sofa.  That was miserable.

Little did I know that it'd get better! Now he'll wake up after 2 hours and be wide awake wanting to play or scream for 2+ hours. Every. Single. Night.  It's been going on 2 weeks? 6 weeks? I don't even know how long it's been, all I know it's complete and utter misery.  I'm trying my best to not let my lack of sleep, I've been getting 2-3 hours a night now, affect my work and work around the house but it is.

I am at a complete loss as to what to do. We tried CIO and it was an epic failure, he's not made for it.  Last night I made a "nest" (really, just a pile of blankets) on the floor of the Awesomeatorium and slept there with him.  I say slept but you know, was tortured by being awake forever.
