Sleeping like a baby...what exactly does that mean?

Well, as parents Aaron and I are learning that you really can't rely on anything staying the same with a baby. Last week we had a good string of days where Miles was sleeping through the night from 9:30pm to about 6:00-7:00 am. Last Saturday he even let us sleep in until 8:00! Well that streak was broken on Sunday (Dec. 11) with him waking up at his typical 3:00am for a feeding. Monday night was more of the same and Tuesday night he was fussy going to sleep and was hard to put down. Finally he went to sleep at 10:30pm, but then woke up at 1:00am, then again at 3:00am.

Thankfully our friend Stacey and her little girl C. let us borrow their swing. It is a Graco, it has 6 speeds, plays music AND has white noise sounds. It ROCKS!! Our original swing (Fisher Price) that I got at a yard sale for $10 quit working, still works, Miles just got too big for it. I think the most that this swing supports is 12 pounds. Stacey told me that the Graco swing will support up to 25 pounds, so we are set for another couple of months.

Well, these days he is doing something really funny. He has discovered his feet and wants to put them in his mouth any chance he gets. It is quite funny, but a little frustrating when I try and change his diaper. But can I get frustrated with this little guy when he makes me giggle so much.
