Growth spurt? Or best baby ever?

Yesterday, according to my MIL, Andrew was a wonderful little munchkin  He took a 2 1/2 hour nap in the morning, spent lots of time playing and cooing on his playmat, ate like a champ, and took another long nap before I got home from work.

Actually he was snoozing when I got home and I had to fight the urge to swoop him up and shower him with kisses.  Once he woke up, though, all bets were off.  He was a content little guy and I got to spend 5 good hours with him, including lots of nursing, bath time, and oodles of cuddles.

This kid cracks me up

We put him to bed a little after 9:00. J and I both just stood there looking down at him snuggled in the crib.  It still never ceases to amaze me that he is all ours:

(We will be starting to break him of the boppy habit this weekend)

This morning when I got up I went out and listened to see if I heard him. Nope.  I looked at my phone. He'd been asleep for a little over 9 hours.  The whole time I was getting ready I was listening for a yell. 


I went downstairs and packed up my lunch and got everything ready for the day.  Finally I went in to get him.  9 hours and 40 minutes.  Wow.

His eyes were half open, like he was about to wake up.  He squinted at me as I picked him up and gave me a cute little groan and stretch when I put him on the changing table and unswaddled him.

I got my morning baby time while nursing him and got him changed for the day before I let him go.  He was on the playmat when I left, ready for another day.

With all this sleep I either have the best baby ever, or he is hitting that 3 month growth spurt.  Either way, I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world...


  1. He is so cute all swaddled up in his crib!!

  2. Thanks :) He's like an angry little caterpiller when we put him in his swaddle - kicking his legs all around, but he sleeps great in it. Now we just need to break him of the habit of sleeping on the boppy.
