However, since he got his six-month vaccinations last Friday, he's stopped wanting to sleep at all! His morning naps are almost non-existant (45 minutes, max) and his afternoon naps have creeped earlier and earlier, so making it to bedtime is a pain. And now, we're waking up every night, sometimes more than once. Dr. Hogan advised me that it's OK to still breastfeed him at night, but I feel like I'm giving him positive reinforcement by feeding him at every night waking. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can handle this? I would like my baby to "sleep through the night" without making it this big traumatic thing. Even if I have to go several days of torture by weaning him off of night-feedings, in the long run I think it would be helpful. I'm just so frazzled...I love my son so much, but his clingy, whiney-ness during the last week or so is really starting to wear me down. We were just doing so well, now I feel like I have a newborn all over again.
On a brighter note, he has started to "army crawl" and "inch worm"; basically, he can move forward on his elbows, or get up on his hands and knees and launch himself forward towards a toy (or something he's not supposed to get into). Yesterday, I wasn't watching and he took apart my Wii system console...I still can't figure that one out. He also pulled himself up into a standing position in his crib, but I had put him down sitting up first. I got some cute pictures of that...I'll post them when I'm not at work (I'm very busy, if you can't tell...)
What a stinker!

There's a Hefty garbage bag commercial that has a silly voice going "Stinky Stinky Stinky!" that Nicklas thinks is just hilarious. I caught some cute video of him laughing at me while I sang this to him and tried to shove peas in his mouth simultaneously. It's too cute!
And no, that is not my real laugh...there's something about babies' laughter that turns you into a total idiot :-)

On Friday we had breakfast at Clary's, one of my favorite places to eat in Savannah!
He got so dirty with us trying to feed him in restaurant high chairs that I had to give him a bath in the sink of our hotel bathroom. There was no tub, to my dismay...
We've discovered that this rubber ducky will calm a fussy baby better than any pacifier. Needless to say, I pulled it out ALOT during this trip!
It was so warm out on Saturday, we got to pull out our first little shorts outfit of the spring. Isn't he cute!
