January Sleep Study

31 01 2011

As you may have read, we ran into some sleep issues and I called in Mimi to control her boy. Actually, my sweet mom offered to come help me so I could get some rest. I even slept until 10am one day! Carter got some much needed snuggle time with Mimi and all was right with the world again.

what? me? i've not been causing any trouble.

I’m sure this is the first of many confusing “what happened to my sweet baby” moments. But it was brutal with a capital B. Thankfully, we’re back to long sleep cycles. The last four nights have been 12.5 hours minus a little dream feed. I’m knocking wood. Right now. Because I know that with each minute, he could wake up sick, hungry, or just wanting to hang out with mommy and daddy. All night. You hear that kid? I know it’s temporary. But keep it up! For the next 17.5 years!

uhoh! who brought in mimi? can you get my mommy under control, she wants to sleep through the night.

While Mimi was here, we decided to put together the exersaucer. The kid went cross-eyed (see below). It’s kind of funny. With all of his big toys, his main focus on the first few days is the arms that hold up the cool stuff.

ten whole milestones!

He’d still rather snuggle with mimi.

Oh! In the midst of all this craziness, he learned a few things: he’s rolling over from his front to back and almost his back to front. He’s mastered grabbing both feet… so sayonara cute socks. We should just plan to have mixed socks from now on as he loves to tug them off and chuck ’em. But who cares? Look at those chunky thighs! So adorable.

Alas, Mimi had to go home. We were so thankful for her help and got some much needed rest, a date night with my hubby, and some good chat time with one of my favorite people on this planet. Love you momma (sm).

The first picture caption is right, Carter! Surely, you weren’t causing any trouble. We both know who the troublemakers are, right buddy? Mimi will always be on your side–you can count on it!!

Allright Kim. I’ve decided you should write for a newspaper or magazines. Your reporting skills are amazing!
I look forward to reading this blog! Your sense of humor and beautiful pics amaze me. Not to mention we’re getting to know a little more of what’s going on with Carter. He’s even more beautiful than your last blog! And Mimi looks quite beautiful herself. 🙂
Kim, thank u for marrying my brother! 🙂
