Oh, Little Man

Dear Little Man,

I know I just wrote to you, but we need to talk. There's a few issues (ahem) that I think we could work on.

First of all, this blowing bubbles in the food business has just got to stop. You know you need to eat your food! Are you trying to get Mama in trouble with the Doctor again?

Second, is it really necessary for you to be getting up two or more times a night? I mean, still? Really??? Is it really necessary to practice crawling in the middle of the night?

You're a big boy now -- I thought we were clear on this issue. What happened to the ten hour nights?

Mama would like some uninterrupted sleep -- and soon. Do you think you could accommodate that request? That would make Mama sssoooooo happy.

Third, I'm a little fed up with all this constant flipping over and reverse diaper changes. Do you have to be in motion all the time? Sometimes I have to take you for a stroller walk or put you in a bouncy seat just to contain you for a little while. So much energy being expended! Seems like you should sleep through the night when you're active ALL DAY LONG, mister!

That's probably enough for you to work on for right now. You did have some exciting firsts today, sweet bunny.

You had your first ride in the grocery cart seat, albeit a small cart, with our fleece sling as a support to hold you in a bit better. You seemed to really enjoy the new perspective, especially the close proximity to the merchandise. You also tried, successfully, to lick and bite the handle bar of the cart once you were bored of the shopping. That was really great.

Later, at JC and CC's house, you got up on all fours. You were locked and loaded in crawling position, but didn't attempt it. You also got into push-up position several times in a row -- the first time you have been able to do so. You showed off your mad rolling skillz to JC and thoroughly impressed her. You amaze me, too, little cutie.

Give some thought to my requests. I would be ever so grateful if you would help me out -- or meet me in the middle! I'll take what I can get!

Congratulations on your accomplishments, Boo. I look forward to more new tricks. :)

All my Love,

It's wonderful that you are documenting all these milestones, VDog. It goes so fast and you soon forget the miracle of it!

Oh - no sleep over there either? I thought it was just temporary...hopefully it is and he'll be sleeping again soon!
Lovely letter...and I love your haiku!

My Little Man never stops moving, ever! It does make the diaper change challenging!

Awe, this is cute...Where do I get me some of those ten hour sleep nights?

Such a sweet letter! I'm sure Little Man will love to read them when he's not such a little man!

I'm still not getting 10 hour nights... maybe 9, but then I stay up too late to chill... and 5 AM comes way too quickly!

As far as the moving, it gets worse... and they get more proficient and can't be restrained... ENJOY this rolling stage while you still can!!! :)

We've started putting the diapers on backwards.

Here's my memo:

Oh... Little Man. Please stay asleep for Mommy. She needs to be awake to talk to me on AIM.

BTW - where is Mommy?

I'm here!
