don't you wish your baby was

amazing like mine?

my baby is perfect. i'm not bragging, he really is.

a few minutes ago i realized how late it was and that he still hadn't had an afternoon nap. wait, let me preface this with some history. gage has always been a napper. he is also a very scheduled child... i promise. it's not me. it's him. when he was around 9 months old, he put himself into a routine of a 10 AM nap, and a 2PM nap. the day that i realized that he fell asleep at those times ever day, whether at the store or at the park, i felt like an idiot for not realizing it sooner. so of course i started working with the schedule instead of against it and everything was rosy.

then we moved to ukraine and i decided to move him to one nap a day. bad decision. i, the idiot, of course, didn't realize that his (uncommon but out of character) screaming, hitting, and whining were due to his lack of naps. i just thought it was the water.

lo and behold, we move back to the US and i realize after 2 months that maybe the kiddo wants to sleep more.

so, back to my original point, a few minutes ago i was putting him down for his afternoon nap. i rocked him for a minute in the dark room then sang a little bit of I am a Child of God at his request (chi-wud, peez). then i laid him in his crib and he started to cry, (howd gage, mama). so i rocked him more and sang more, then halfway through a verse, he stops me (top it, peez. night night).

then i lay him down again and he whispers, "yuh you, mama"

i'm telling you, he is perfect! PERFECT!
