Mornings

The cutie has turned me into a morning person.

He has a fairly predictable nighttime schedule (though now that I've said that, he will probably deviate from it tonight): He goes to sleep some time between 10 and 11 pm; wakes up for a feeding around 2-3 am, for a second feeding 5-6 am, and then up for the day 8-9 am.

I used to go back to bed after the 5-6 am feed, to get a couple more precious hours of sleep, but lately I've been finding myself getting up, so that I can take a shower, eat breakfast, surf the web, and have (whispered) conversations with my sweetie that do not focus on the baby and his bodily functions. It's ridiculously luxurious.

I'm not the only one who enjoys my sweetie's company: I am slowly developing the theory that our cutie likes his dad more than me. Yesterday, and last Monday, he cried all afternoon, which at this point is somewhat unusual for him. Then my sweetie came home, and the moment he walked in the door, the baby stopped crying. It's enough to give a mom a complex. SIGH.

Anyway, here are some pics of our cutie, looking ever cuter:

"Let go o' ny liff! Let go o' ny liff!"

The requisite "naked baby" picture--he'd have been fully naked, but he started peeing when I was taking the picture :-)

Definitely smiling! (Note shirt with wishful-thinking printing.)

And finally, a shot of our cutie wearing a one-piece I knit for him, out of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. I'm pretty proud of it, since I made up the pattern myself. The closures on the front and at the crotch are closed with sewn-on snap tape (a first for me, since I think knitting and sewing do not mix well; I did cheat and sew it on by hand: no running the knitting through the sewing machine for me!). And I actually managed to finish it before he was too big for it; quite a feat when you have a baby and cannot knit one-handed.

Of course, I've heard many stories of kids who refuse to wear hand knits. The cool stuff is bought in a store. So I thought I would get in a few hand knits while he is still too young to protest.

Obviously I was wrong about the protesting bit :-).

I see your cutie [as opposed to your sweetie, who I would hope already knows how to do this -- heh] already has quite advanced manual dexterity skills (ouch!)

Wow! Cool outfit you knit the little guy! I never got beyond baby sweaters, before I gave up --it's too warm in SoCal for anything but cotton, which I really hate knitting.

Glad to hear he's sleeping more. Hooray!

Try not to take the perceived preference for Daddy personally. My kids went through similar phases, to the point of clinging barnacle-like when the favored parent tried to pass them off. But then they'd switch! There's also the novelty factor --new face, new smells, new textures like stubble and lips to explore and try to remove. . .

Why do Americans consider a naked baby mandatory on internet? You are so proud when it comes to adults and you hardly see a bum in an American movie BUT when you see videos or pics on internet where naked babies show their dicks or twats, where are those vids or pics from? Mostly from USA!

....sorry I wrote proud but I meant prude!!! You are very prude in USA and that is worth respect but why don´t you give that respect to children?

My Aunt loves your babies naked picture. she wishes she can see his pee-pee because it reminds her of the time she changed my 6 month old baby brothers diaper and tickled his pee-pee after powdering him.
