He is truly the happiest, most compliant and fun baby. I am having the time of my life raising him, watching him grow, and being a part of all the little milestones that happen each day. And then the night comes :) For the past 6-8 weeks, this little prince has been waking up during the night--no less than 8 times a night--and we're beyond stumped as to why. We've ruled out hunger, teething, pain of any sort, and have come to accept the fact that our little monster is dependent on the comfort that comes from his pacifier, and (loudly) demands it be put back in several times a night. I don't want to deny him this little "vice", so we've been dealing with it the best we can, but night after night of interrupted sleep takes its toll. Together with starting work again part-time, I've been one tired mama for many weeks now!
Tate is six months old today, and I'm hopeful that soon we'll turn a corner with the sleeping and waking. We also just got back from a wonderful vacation in Mexico, and he was a wonderful sleeper while we were there so I feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle the next challenge.....teething :) For now though, we have some great family memories of our first vacation together:
Tate, lovin' his chubby little life under the palm trees in paradise......
Having so much fun being toted around by daddy in the Bjorn--what a lifesaver that thing is sometimes!
On the last day of vacation, at sunset, with a well-rested and relaxed mama......lets hope it stays that way for a while!
I'm planning on re-engaging with the blog world, now that things have started to feel a bit more normal around here. Whatever "normal" means with a baby in the house! Hope to get some updates on here soon with some of the recent design happenings around my house!
