My Kind Of Guy


I have noticed that I haven't really been ranting about being tired, zombie-ish because of lack of sleep, etc. And when people in the office ask me if I had a good nights sleep, I actually smile and answer "yes I did have good nights sleep!" Because I always have a good nights sleep. I think it's really amazing that Arrow is such an easy baby. He is such a good baby.

I have noticed that they just keep getting better and better-- my kids I mean. I can't help but compare one from the other at times in terms of how they were when they were babies. One was EXTREMELY difficult to the point where I would dread nightfall because I knew it meant crying and crying and more crying. He just wouldn't stop even if he was full, his diaper was clean, he was burped, he was being cradled. He just wouldn't stop. One was relatively easy but had a temper. My oh my. So when my youngest came along, I was sort of prepared for any kind of baby. But VOILA! I was blessed with such an angel.

He wakes up in the morning and pretty much stays in bed wide awake for half an hour or so before demanding to be picked up. I bathe him and then feed him. when I get home for lunch, I feed him. According to the nanny, he spends the afternoon playing and eating and being carried. By the time I get home, he's ready for another feeding before he plays and coos and makes me adore him. He falls asleep between 8-9 after being fed and then sleeps through the night except for his usual feeding at around 2 and then 5 in the morning. It probably helps that I don't pick him up to be fed anymore because he sleeps beside me and is fed while lying down as well.

I hope I don't jinx myself! But he really is a sweetheart.

Louann, I am really in awe at the way you handle motherhood...you definitely are every child's dream mom :)

And congratulations on the little one, I guess being a good mom you already anticipate what he needs and being satisfied...he also couldn't ask for more but reward you with what you most deserve...a good night's sleep :)

God bless!

Awwwwww! What a super post! Can I tell you how ADORABLE Arrow is!?!?! Oh, of course you already knew that though!

Gotta love good sleepers!!! Little One loves her sleep too...she just doesn't like napping during the day! *sigh* Well, at least I can settle for her sleeping through the nights over napping during the day! Her cat naps in the day last 7 mins here and 12 mins there. Gah.

Just thought I'd mention the give away I'm having on my blog.

So sweet!
I have a friend whose third baby is a real angel, after her first two, who were, well, criers to say the least!
You so deserve Arrow... and you're a great mom :)!

He is such a cutie! :) I know what you mean, I can't help but compare Lucas and Chakai too.. Chakai was and still is and angel.. Lucas on the other hand, is a boy. Enough said.. LOL Although he doesn't give me sleepless nights, he makes up for it by being extra rowdy during daytime.. Motherhood is so exhausting, I can't believe you can manage it and have a job at the same time! You're super awesome! :)
