Oh how I love a sleeping baby!

At first it seems like all they do is sleep. Sometimes during the first week I wondered if Colin would ever open his eyes. He even closed his eyes when he was awake or eating.

Those rare awake and alert times were precious, and we got out the camera to capture the moment. Hey look! He's awake!

Now at 6 weeks, I am afraid that he has forgotten how to sleep!

I feed him, I burp him, I bounce him, I rock him, he falls asleep. I put him down in bed... and in about 5-10 minutes...
(This is just a picture of some tummy time, but the sequence was right.)

I get him up, I check to see if he still has a bubble, I try to give him a pacifier, I check his diaper, I rock him, I bounce him, I pat him on the back, he goes to sleep... and the sequence starts over again.
Most of the time during the day, I just give up trying to put him down in his bed and strap him into the Moby. (THANK YOU ERIKA!) I strap him to me, and he fall right to sleep so I can do the dishes or cook dinner.
Or, if I'm really lucky...
Nana comes over and rocks him while he sleeps and I can work unencumbered.
But when he finally gives up an goes to sleep and stays asleep...
That's right, I get out the camera to capture the moment. Hey look! He's asleep!
I love you Colin! Especially when I decide to give in, let the dishes go, and just take the to cuddle you.
