Steppin' out with my baby...

Baby B and I made it all the way to the library today, where I picked up a copy of The Happiest Baby on the Block, a manual for getting infants to sleep longer and sounder. I'm currently on page 30 (nursing offers plenty of good reading time), and have learned a few things already. I still don't think we'll get Blaine to sleep 4-hour stretches on his back, though. Last night I gave up after feeding him at 10:00, 11:45, 1:00, and 3:00 a.m. (Keep in mind that he usually nurses for 45 minutes, so it's not that long of a stretch in between.) I put him on my chest and we slept for 3 blissfull hours together on the couch. One step forward, two steps back, I guess...

...and he is sleeping like crazy today. Even in the swing - which is unheard of since week 2. In any case, he is starting to smile more, and I tried to capture the expression as he was on his changing table. I didn't get a genuine smile, but I did get this:

Enjoy, Auntie Katie!


  1. I love that the blog has become my own personal Blaine facebook... He is too adorable! Oh to hold him in my arms and watch his funny faces myself. I can't wait! Love you all! xo

  2. I love Blaine's faces! How much fun it must be to watch him all day. What a cutie. ;)
