This can't possibly be our baby:You see, our baby loves the closeness of being snuggled, typically protests at being on his back, and shows all of his strength when a swaddle is attempted. But he sure is cute and darling and grunts just like our sweet Noah. Hmmm....
One of Nate's coworkers sent this little bassinet/rocker home with him last night (THANK YOU Amber!), and little Noah didn't mind it at all. I took a risk and decided to swaddle him when it was time for bed, and he gave me a look that just sort of said, "O.k., I guess it's not that bad."
For the first time in four weeks I didn't hold Noah all night long. I have few complaints about doing it, because it was what worked and I knew it wouldn't be forever that he'd need to sleep this way. Besides, if this is his 'sleep with mommy' stage instead of at two or three, I'm pretty lucky.
Sure, it was only one night, but I can't help but be optimistic. I think you're growing up Noah!
