What an amazing year it has been. It has flown by, at the speed of light. It seems like just a moment ago I was nursing this little hungry baby for hours on end, and now, now you hardly even care to nurse. What an amazing person you're turning into!
This month has been a long one. January is a tough, long dark cold gray month. But now! It's February and we are out again! We are going to parks, visiting the farm, and enjoying the little tiny bit of sunshine that February has to offer.
So after a month of sleeping without a swaddle you decided that you WOULD NOT sleep. Instead, in the middle of the night you liked to pull up onto your knees in your crib and cry and cry and cry for us. It was pretty ridiculous actually. We'd go in, soothe you, nurse you, rock you, whatever, and then stand over your crib for way too long, trying to coax you back to sleep.
Once you were (seeming) back to sleep we'd sneak out and minutes later you'd be screaming for us again kneeling eagerly at the side of your crib. Oh yea, and James was barfing his guts out down the hall (keep in mind this was all at two a.m.). Fun fun. So on night two or three, after even trying to bring you in bed with me, I decided something had to be done. I swaddled you again. And that, my dear, worked wonders. You were out like a light and started sleeping again!
Moral of the story? I don't care if I send you off to collage in your swaddle. As long as you sleep! I'll teach your roommate to swaddle you, and then all will be well. ;)
