jeremiah is such a sweet, smart, silly boy! but we are having a NEW sleeping problem now. not just because of the teething, which hurts him so bad it keeps him up and crying. no, it’s a bit different this time (on top of that).
the boy loves to sleep on his tummy. yes, his tummy. so no matter how many times we lie him on his back or side, he flips himself to his belly every time. the problem is, when he’s asleep or tired, he’s unable to flip himself to his back again. 🙁 this is scary to us, because he’s still at risk for sids. so guess who hasn’t been sleeping well?
yep, mama. i get up tons of times at night to turn him on his back or side once again. of course he’s on his tummy when i enter every time! this means i sleep restlessly, worrying about his safety.
does anyone have any suggestions for me on this one? did you have a tummy-loving sleeper? i would like to just let him sleep on his belly and get over it, but the sids stories are so strong! i just can’t let it go!
on to other things. i hope you enjoy the new videos that are up! i enjoy taking them with my new camera. he’s such a fun, funny subject! 🙂 he’s such little jabber-box. sometimes when i look at him, my heart wells up so big, and i feel tears behind my eyes because of how very much he means to me. he is so precious, perfect and wonderful. we are so very blessed with his presence. our love for him is indescribable. i am so thankful that the Lord blessed us with him. i think often of the years that we tried and prayed to conceive. and then i thank the Lord for ‘unanswered prayers’, because if we had conceived anytime before, we would not have jeremiah. if we’d had a boy, his name would be jeremiah, BUT he would not be THIS jeremiah – this perfect, precious, priceless angel.
thank You Lord for this wonderful boy. thank You for making me wait on Your timing, for You DO have a PERFECT PLAN! i love You, Lord!
that’s it for now – someone needs snuggles! 🙂
blessings and hugs!
