Apparently my son didn't read the same book his mother and I did... the one that says babies sleep around 18 hours a day.

I opened this thinking there would be photos....

I do know what you mean...one of mine never slept and made it very difficult for awhile...he'll outgrow it when he's a teen, don't worry!

Babies sleep????

Here's what you do...make sure the house is as noisy as it can possibly be...the baby will then decide he cannot cry over everything else, and the hum-drumm of the washers, dryers, dishwashers, and tv will put him to sleep...

See?

Mama hugs...

The baby is here??

When?  I missed it??!!!

Pics please!

And, yes, some babies don't sleep..
they stay awake all night,
their head full of thoughts,
and then...
they grow up and become poets.

BTW....CONGRATULATIONS!!

I dont know chris, he looked to be sleeping in all the photos... however -- the book you refer to does not exist...LOL I never understood why people always said "they slept like a baby" ... What a sweetie, and as you know it will get better....the sleeping part...LOL   

I don’t want the world to see me
cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken I just want you to know who I am

Heh.

Sleep is a privilege, my friend, not a right.  

My son was fussy when he was tiny also; now he eats like a horse and sleeps like a rock.  I won't say it gets better, but it does get more interesting ...

He is absolutely a living doll!  I hate to tell you this but they cry for no reason at all sometimes, and I would too if I could get someone to pick me up and hold me  

Seriously though Chris check your email, you were on the right track with the dryer so I figured I would show you the answer.

There is nothing quite like a vibrator for a baby, it works!   Either a heated vibrating bouncy chair (like the one I showed you,) or an actual vibrator tied to any old thing works well too.  Let's hope Megan is reading LOL.

Zach would always fall asleep to AC/DC.

"Hell's Bells" in fact.

We thought he was a natural born rocker, but as Kari pointed out, babies will put themselves into a deep sleep in a noisy environment.

But? Now he's back there, playing his beloved Jackson guitar, and scoffs at AC/DC as "too simplistic."

grin...

Enjoy every moment? Ha...my office/bedroom is on the opposite side of the house.

Oh geeeeeeez...now he's got the drum machine going too.

Enjoy, Christopher. It's quite a journey!



I've got a door to go shut.

Beautiful child ya got there. We just recently had a grandson born, T6, or Thomas VI. We're just waiting for a few more years to pass, so we can sit him, stoke him up on sugar, and send him back to his parents. *cackle*
