cuddles, sleep, etc...

i am starting to think all my posts from here on out are going to be random and more than likely momma/baby posts! i have no problem with that so i hope ya'll don't either!! ;)

* i just LOOOOOVE, love, love cuddling with my sweet boy!! we cuddle many hours a day ;)  B snapped this pic of culley's sweet baby feet the other night when he was laying on me.


* an old neighbor of mine recently started blogging.  her name is annie, so that automatically means she's awesome ;) she just got married and is expecting a baby boy!  i am totally in LOVE with their nursery! she is new to blogging so stop by her blog check it out and to see the rest of the nursery!!  she is an interior designer and i LOVE her style!! so out of the box and just FUN!

* i'm working on getting C to sleep in his crib/sleep through the night.  the first night he went 10-3:30 but then was up every 30 minutes.  i finally brought him in my room at 6.  i was a zombie the next day.  the next night i decided to try again but then my brother and nephew showed up.  we were being a bit loud and it just threw off C's sleep.  he went in his crib from 8-9 and then 10-12.  then i brought him to bed with me.  the next night C fell asleep in his swing around 9:30 and was so sound asleep i left him there.  i feel asleep on the couch around 10 and C slept until 4! at this point i'm thinking i LOVE the swing!  i fed him and brought him upstairs with me and he slept until 9!  the reason i brought him up is because billy was alseep on our other couch.  turns out he was having nightmares of someone chasing him in high heels!! the sound of the swing clicking was interfering with his much needed sleep. it is sunday night (night 4) and C is sleeping on my lap in a swaddled sleepsack.  it's 10 pm and were waiting on daddy B to get home.  continued from last night....C slept 10:30 until 6!!  he slept swaddled in his pack-n-play right next to me.  so tonight i might try him swaddled in his crib.

*we went for a walk this morning at 7 and then C slept from 7:45-8:45.  i don't so much care for waking up at 6 since we usually sleep in until 9 BUT if we are both going to be getting full night of sleep i'm all for it!  i just need to go to bed when C does.  i was up until 1:00 in the morning last night.  

*C is at the point where he puts everything in his mouth!  i love watching him play toys.  he also loves blankies and trying to put them in his mouth as well.  haha.  i really watch him close when he is playing with his blankies.

*whale bath tub dilemma solved thanks to some fellow bloggers....turns out that green bump thingy in the tub comes out!! so, we won't be buying a new tub.

*now, i have a MOUNTAIN of clean, folded laundry that needs tended to....

avrie LOVES being swaddled and sleeps thru the night and pretty much has from about 5 weeks. she goes down anywhere from 9-10pm and sleeps until 6-7am. she will occasionally wake up at 3/4am but that is because she has kicked herself free from the swaddle and then realizes she has a wet diaper and is probably hungry- but she is back to sleep within 45 minutes and then we get to sleep in until about 8:30-9am. I also swaddle her for her morning naps {which are also in her crib} and she sleeps most days until noon. its all about seeing what works best for your baby, good luck!

Emmalee LOVES her swing too! I'm glad I got the one that plugs into the wall b/c I would be going through batteries like crazy without it.

I hope C likes his crib. I know I slept much better without hearing every little noise Em made. One thing I realized is that the pack'n'play was more padded than the crib matress, so I put a really sofe, fluffy blanket under the crib sheet and Em seems to like it much better. I think she just prefers the soft padding like the pack'n'play. Just something you could try if C doesn't sleep as well in the crib.
