i'm still waiting for the day when i can get over the weather down here. i mean, one day there's frost on the windshield and a few days later it's 80 degrees out and i'm using the AC in my car! i'm not complaining or anything, i'm just wondering when i'll get used to it. the above picture was taken last week on one of the colder days; it was windy and tristan didn't seem to enjoy that walk much at all. yesterday, during one of tristan's amazing naps (!) i re-did the little quiz in the beginning of baby whisperer to see what kind of baby he is. was utterly shocked to find he is a "touchy baby" and, after reading the description, had a major "aha!" moment. touchy babies often cry for no reason, nurse erratically, have difficulty falling asleep, and easily get off schedule. he is also very sensitive to light and noise. this began only a week ago when he startled and began to cry during applause at church. since then, i've found that i can longer have his little lamp on to read by while nursing him at night..he finds the light distracting. so, there you have it: no angel babies here. but of course we love him all the same. oh yes, and i might add that after a very successful nap day yesterday, he only woke up to eat once in the middle of the night!!! today my challenge will be to see if i can keep him on the same routine while at my mother in law's house. something tells me he may be a little aprehensive about sleeping in a crib other than his.
can i write about anything other than my baby and his sleep issues? hmmm...apparently not. cannot think of one single interesting thing to say other than 2 more weeks until my parents visit! that's it, that's all.
