My adorable chunky monkey has been going through a needy stage in which he constantly wants to be with mama and held by mama. And since he isn’t yet on a sleep schedule (and sometimes he decides that sleep is over-rated anyway), I don’t have much time to blog, reply to blog comments, or comment on blogs these days. But rest assured, I am around. And I will be back. 🙂 It’s just that right now, I have very little free time.
But that’s just for now…
Soon enough, he’ll have a bed-time and a nap-time… and some days, maybe he’ll somewhat sleep according to those times. 😉 And, maybe the biggest change of all, he’ll soon be sleeping in his very own room instead of sharing one with his mommy and daddy. Even if I get only an hour or two of free time from that change, it will be huge!
I look forward to that change, and I dread that change. I’ll miss him. Yet I’ll love having a bit of space.
But either way, I’m not in any rush… I do want to help ease him into the transition, however. So today, when he started to sleepily rub his eyes, I gently placed him in his crib to see if he would nap there. He giggled for a good while and ‘talked’ to the jungle animals hanging from his mobile. But then – gasp – he fell asleep! And he has been sleeping for almost 30 minutes now!
I’d call that a good step in the right direction! Now excuse me as I tackle one of the five piles of laundry in my house… Maybe I’ll get some folded before he wakes up! 🙂
