Wranglers & a bib for Carmen.

Wranglers & boots for David.

The bib & boots were a present from Uncle John. The boots (real Justins!) won’t be fitting much longer!

Justifying the Circles Under My Eyes

May 30th, 2005 by Joyce

Breastfed babies have longer sleep cycles than formula-fed babies, but they are also more easily awakened. Research suggests that this is why breastfed babies are less likely to die from SIDS.

So, when Carmen and David wake up with a silly smile and want to talk at 4am, are there benefits to that, too?

Maybe not important medical ones. But there’s something sweet to now and again hearing Carmen babble and giggle in the morning’s wee hours, or feeling David’s toasty little body wiggle as the two of you settle into the rocking chair to catch a few more winks before sunup.

Carmen slept from 8:30p to 6:00a last night.

Birthday Balloons

Carmen and the Birthday Balloons

For their four-month birthday Carmen and David got to go to the grocery store and bring back four balloons: silver, shiny blue, a honeybee and a dragonfly. We’ll play with them until they’re all out of air, and then we’ll go back to get them filled up again!
