all through the night!
How do you like my super-cute bath robe & slippers that Aunt Sharon gave me? Don't I look wistful here? :)
Well, I've suddenly taken up the bad habit of gnawing on my hands when my "paci" isn't around & it's caused the skin on my thumbs & index finger to get really red & cracked! After my bath last night, Mommy put some ointment on those places and then she decided that I needed to wear my little mitts (aka "turtle paddles"). Well, I couldn't have disagreed more! I had a MAJOR meltdown about that! I started putting those mitts in my mouth FEROCIOUSLY, but it wasn't giving me the same pleasure and boy, I did NOT like it! I cried harder than I had cried since my little colic-y spell when I was 5 weeks old! Mommy tried to comfort me, but to no avail.
And after a few minutes, I was OUT. Asleep in mid-crying... :)
The GOOD news is that I must have really worn myself out, because after Mommy fed me, I slept from 8:00pm- 4:30am straight!! (this is actually a picture from a daytime nap, but Mommy needed a sleeping picture to illustrate.... he he... oh, and I start out sleeping close to the corner because it makes me feel like I'm back in my little Moses basket, but now I mysteriously end up perpendicular with my head & arms in the center of the crib?!) Don't they say that when babies sleep at least 8 hours, it's considered sleeping all through the night? If so, I guess you'd say it was my first time! Yea! Mommy was SO excited for me and hopes it's not the last... :)
