Well... now he wakes up in the middle of the night...dozens of times I might add....sits up....but doesn't cry!!!! He instead uses his radar to seek out my breasts and then LUNGES his entire body onto them!!!!
So of course being woken up by a 20 pound monkey of a baby body slamming me throughout the night with suction cup lips can be pretty frightening!!! But, I just love it!!!!
Anyone else want to share funny/strange/adorable things your babies do while co-sleeping that we would otherwise miss out on had they been in a crib?
Also, she likes to sleep on her side sometimes. When she is on her back she rolls over facing me and her little arms pat my breasts and end up resting on them.
I just LOVE snuggling with my baby!!!!!!

I can't describe how much I love snuggling w/ my little angel. It's one of the best things in the world. I get so miffed when I read books like Ezzo's Babywise and Marilu Henner's I Refuse to Raise a Brat which claim that cosleeping is bad for a child's emotional health and dangerous to the child's physical well-being. Fie on them, I say. Cosleeping's the best!!
|Now that he's 3 1/2, he is ALMOST (!) weaned (still asks now and then, but only lasts 15 seconds), he still likes to cuddle in the nursing position and put his feet on me. Now that they are size 11's, the cold factor is a much bigger deal! Brrrrrr!|
This morning we were snuggling and I was half-asleep when he asked to nurse, but he still sticks those feet on me! I'm so glad I haven't missed these moments!!
