Happy Birthday to Thomas

Thomas is one month old today. I can't believe it. He is much more alert now and his interactive times are much more entertaining. He makes noises and looks all over. He seems to be most fascinated by lights and shadows. He loves the skylights in our living room. He also needs time every day to kick it out on the floor. He does not want to be held during this time - he just likes to wave his arms around, kick his legs and make some noise.

He gave us a real gift last night, sleeping from 1-5. After two nights of waking up every 2 hours, we were grateful to get 4 straight hours of sleep. Of course, there were several times I woke up and listened to make sure he was breathing. I wonder if I will every get over that.

He is also at the stage now where I can put him in his bouncy seat in the bathroom while I take a shower. I can see him the whole time and I still get a shower. Best of both worlds!

All in all a great day!

Yep, you'll get over it. But it will take a while!

I agree with Joanne, you do get over it, but not for a while. But, showers and 4-hour stretches of sleep do help that process. Happy Birthday, littlest Nephew-Man!
