Chompers & Sleeping

You have 4 teeth now. One on the top and 3 on the bottom. The one on the top is new as is the one on the bottom, and I can't wait to see how you look when they are fully in. Or what kind of damage you can do to mommy's skin. You love to bite my lips and my chin.

You are 10 1/2 months old now. I can't believe it. It's gone by really fast at times. The times it doesn't seem to fly by are when you aren't sleeping well. Such as right now. You've never been a great sleeper. Last night you were off the hook, though! I tried putting you down at 7:30 but you were a wriggling machine. I let you cry for a bit, but I could tell you weren't going to sleep and took you out of your room to let you play. Boy, did you play. You talked and crawled and banged two balls on the t.v. while daddy and I were trying to watch it.

This is how you know you're parents were old when they had you---they are amused by the loud noise and instead of reprimanding you because they want to watch the program, they just laugh. Or maybe we're just tired. Anyway, at 9 I decided you really needed sleep since you are still getting over a cold. I had to let you cry again, but you finally went down. You had me up about 3 times after that, though. You just weren't interested in sleeping last night.

I hope you will forgive me when you are older for letting you cry sometimes. Or better yet, I hope that you don't remember. I never want to let you cry, and I can withstand about a week of getting up numerous times during the night. But, after a week, I'm a zombie and it dawns on me that I need some good sleep. Just know that I love you and would always go into you every time you needed me...if only you weren't doing it so often. Oh, my sweet, baby. I'm so glad you're mine.
