Now lest you think me completely absent-minded, let me say that with all the talents my darling shnookims came with, sleeping for long stretches at a time was not one of them. He still has yet to sleep longer than three and a half hours at a time (generally it ends up being 2-3) which means Mama doesn't sleep longer than that either. Thus pregnancy brain, I've decided, might have just as much to do with sleep deprivation as with the extra hormones. 'Sleep when the baby sleeps' is much harder than it sounds! (How is it possible to not fall asleep when so tired?) Maybe I'm the only one who really notices because when I went in for an appointment about a month after the baby was born, the nurse said, "Wow, he must be sleeping well- you look so fresh and rested!" All I have to say is, make-up can work wonders! =)
However, I wouldn't trade him for 190,000 hours of sleep! He's truly my sunshine and I'm so lucky. He's extremely healthy, so good, and delights me daily. Yes, he can reach for things, scoot himself on his back and laughs when he thinks things are funny.
And since we know he's the main reason for this blog..the update: (Captions below)
Oh hello Mr. Snail...you do tummy time too?
This is one of my favorite ways to see the world. (This picture makes him look huge, but he's really not quite that big yet...)
I supervise Mom's cooking.
Pilot James ready for take-off!
I'm sorry, what's that you say?
Oh you said smile? Okay, ...smiling!!!
Oh sorry, maybe that was too much- this is a much cooler smile...
