Little Person

Jack is such the little person. He can pull the covers up, and grab and hold what he wants. There are definitely thoughts and choices being made in his mind. We’re starting to get him on a sleeping schedule so he doesn’t turn into Devil Baby (or Jack-Jack Attack for Incredibles fans). He is currently … Continue reading

Another Old Update

In the spirit of sharing every little tidbit of motherhood, this is part of an email message I wrote to my uncle Steve on 17 April:Jack is kind of looking over my shoulder while I type. You see, he had a bad day of sleep. He woke up at 5am, slept for about 45 minutes, … Continue reading

Three Months

Jack actually turned 3 months old this past Monday (4/17), but I haven’t had the chance to announce it until just now. Jack is currently throwing anywhere from a mild to a full-on Mr. CrankyPants yelling fit when he is tired, but fighting sleep. His little eyes close, he rests… for about 5 seconds, at … Continue reading

An Old Update

I’m a little behind on my chronicles of motherhood. Here’s some pertinent info from the beginning of the month: 7 April 2006 Jack is convinced that he doesn’t need to sleep during the day. This makes him cranky and whiny. I did manage to get him to sleep around 11:30am, and he woke up at … Continue reading

Rambling On and On

I’ve got some time to write, as Jack is asleep and will probably be so for a loooonnnngggg time. He’s been refusing to sleep during the day. But he won’t be held, or put in his chair. No, he wants to be in his crib. He just wants me/us to constantly entertain him while he’s … Continue reading

Best Baby Ever

My son just put himself to sleep. He is 9 weeks, 3 days old. We had our typical nighttime routine: changing clothes and diaper, moisturizing his dry skin (he hates that part), dimming the lights and having a bottle (he likes that, though he has some pretty bad reflux), reading a story (In Which Piglet … Continue reading

A Good Day

Today has been a good day. Although Jack began it by fussing and fussing, he stayed cozy in his sling and then his bassinet for several hours. He is currently wrapped around my left forearm, using my elbow as his pillow. I wish I could take a picture of this. Earlier, I was holding Jack … Continue reading

Sleeping Baby

Jack generally sleeps from about 11pm to 4am. Last night, however, he was up every hour. Max finally just got up with him and woke me up at 9 saying, “You need to take him.” So, I calmed Jack down and we slept on the recliner. Jack had a couple of meltdowns today, because of … Continue reading
