I slept through the night!! Mommy and Daddy are thrilled, and much more rested.
I fell asleep around 9:15 at the restaurant, and when we got home, Mommy and Daddy managed to get me into bed without waking me up too much. Then they turned on the monitor (to make sure I was sleeping, not laying there crying) and went to bed. They didn’t hear a peep out of me until around 6:15.
I think I’ve got it down. Now I just have to make sure to take good naps when Mommy puts me down during the day!

Ok. Not sure what’s going on here, but Mommy and Daddy have decided I don’t need to eat during the night. Something about both me and them getting more sleep. Monday night around 11:30 I started my normal fussing to get them ready for a midnight feeding. Daddy came in, turned me on my side, patted my butt, and I went back to sleep. Around midnight I woke up ready to eat (or so I thought), and turned on the crying to get Mommy/Daddy up. Surprise, surprise!! Daddy comes in, turned me on my side, puts the pacifier in my mouth, and starts the “butt patting” again. Hold on, I’m supposed to be getting some food here!!!! Well, after a few minutes of my chewing on the pacifier and settling back down again, Daddy says “Good night. I love you” and goes back to bed. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy. I cried for a while, but it seems that Mommy and Daddy decided I was “ok” and turned off the monitor. Eventually I went back to sleep. I awoke around 5:30 REALLY hungry and turned on the crying to get Mommy and Daddy up. Daddy came in to feed me and everything was good again. That was Monday night.
Last night was a little easier. Again, I started fussing around 11:30, and Mommy came in, turned me on my side, patted my butt… you know the rest. Hey, I didn’t wake back up until Mommy came in to get me around 6AM. This sleeping thing seems to be working out pretty good. I guess I don’t need to eat in the middle of the night after all.
I’m guessing that maybe I won’t wake up at all tonight, until it’s time for breakfast tomorrow. I’ll have to get back to you on that.

We went to see the Dr today to find out why I’m scratching so much, and to have her look at my feet because Mommy an d Daddy thought that I had bumps right behind my toes, on my “pads”. The Dr said there was nothing to worry about, but suggested that I get cortisone rubdowns on my feet 3 times a day. Good thing I love having my feet rubbed!!!
They also measured and weighed me. I’m 14lbs, 9.7 ounces, and 25 inches. That’s over 2 feet. When I stand on the floor (with Mommy help), my head comes just right at the cushion of the couch. Before you know it, I will be getting up and down from the couch, by myself.
Mommy and Daddy bought me a new toy. It is called a Fisher-Price Precious Planet Jumperoo. I love it, even though my feet don’t touch the floor, Mommy helps me jump, jump, jump. We had some giggles today with my jumperoo. Mommy is so funny, who would have thought.
Can you tell I’m having fun!!
Okay I gotta go and get some shut eye. Pray that I start sleeping through the night, because I know mommy and daddy would greatly appreciate it.
Love to my peeps!

Last night was really good for Mommy and Daddy. I slept from 8pm to about 12:30 AM , when Mommy came in and “soothed” me back to sleep. That lasted about 30 minutes though, as by 1 AM I was ready to eat. After eating, I then slept until around 7am. That’s almost 6 hours straight!
Mommy and Daddy are still waiting on me to sleep through the night, and I’m working on it best I can. I’ve just got to get used to not eating at night. I think I get the fondness of eating from Daddy, but don’t tell him I said so.
Catch y’all later,

I must be going through a growth spurt, or something. Lately I’ve been downing up to 7 ounces in one sitting, or needing at least 4 ounces about every two hours.
Grammie and Poppy are here to see me this weekend, so I know I’m in for lots of additional attention and pictures. . I’m sure Dad will post some new photos after the weekend is over. I know he’s a little behind on getting new pictures up (something about a lack of sleep ). Grammie and Poppy brought me some sort of ‘jungle gym’ and my Great Godmother sent me a mobile for my crib. Can’t wait until I’m coordinated enough to play with the gym thingy.

Yesterday was a big day for me. We started out by going to church. Aunt KK held and fed me during church and I did my best not to make too much noise. Thanks to Mom and Dad for not sitting directly under the speaker this time. Paster Mark tends to get a little loud when he gets fired up, and sometimes he startles me. After church, we came home and Mommy and I both took naps. Daddy was downstairs on the computer or PS3 or something.
Last night we visited Aunt KK, Uncle Steve and the girls. My cousins Marissa and McKensie both fed me. Uncle Steve grilled some really good chicken, and also made a chocolate cake. The chicken was good (even second hand ) but Mommy didn’t have any chocolate cake, so we can only assume by Daddy’s big helping that it was good.
And that was enough to wear me out. I fell asleep on the way home, and Mommy and Daddy were quiet and smooth enough to get me all the way into bed without waking me up.
