Intoxicating Sleep!

Well folks, it was Christmas in January at our house this morning. Sweet, sweet Christmas. Remember when you were a little kid and would say, “Mommy, mommy if you please buy me this insert request here, I’ll never ask for anything again?” This was one of those times. I desperately needed a full night of uninterrupted sleep. Last night my little precious angel of life and love slept C.O.N.T.I.N.U.A.L.L.Y from 8:30 ish to 7:40 am! Without a single peep! Dad-Oh and I woke up this morning to him thumping around in his crib. We were shocked when we looked at the clock! I’m very blind and when I looked at the clock and saw what I thought was a seven as the first digit, I had to ask Dad-Oh for verbal confirmation! 😆

Unfortunately, the day didn’t go so well. Those last teeth have got to be making their way in soon, because he was a clingy, cranky guy today. So I’d be willing to wager a bet that Christmas is indeed over, and I’ll be hearing the whimpers of a fevery-fussy little boy around 2-3 am. 😦 We are hoping that he cuts most of the remaining teeth before we leave for Kona. I think has has eight left? The way he has been going lately, I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

At least I had one night! I can only dream of the nights where sleeping soundly until 7 ish is the norm. *sigh*

On the bright side: today is my Friday and I have the next four days off! 🙂 At least I’ll be able to take a mid-day nap if I need to! 😉

Sweet Salvation

Last night was the first night Aidan has slept through the night and past 6:30 am since before we left for Kauai in October! It was beautiful! I can only hope that we travel along this same path for a very, very long time! Sleep:  it’s a beautiful thing!

Tonight was Aidan’s first bath by himself in the big tub. He was way over tired so it was pretty anticlimactic. He did look at me funny, like “um hello, it’s bath time?” We still sang songs and balanced a few duckies on his head, but it wasn’t the same. 😦 After I pulled the lever and most of the water drained out he decided to pee, and he was very excited that he was able to see his entire stream from start to stop. After he was done he looked at me very proud and gave a little smile! Such a man! I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that smile after Dad-Oh had a nice pee too! 😆

Lately Aidan has been climbing on everything! Nothing is off limits! Which is really kinda scary. He has no problem with furniture, climbing on chairs and couches like a pro. Occasionally when he is struggling he uses the Puppers as a stool! She looks at me with her big puppy dog eyes and pleads “get this thing off me!!!” A few nights back Aidan caught a glimpse of his binkie inside his crib and was determined to climb in and get it. Thankfully, he wasn’t successful, but he did give it the old college try.
