Jack Bites

Not only does Jack just not sleep at night anymore, he is also a total nipple biter.

Okay, so he goes to bed like he has for the past few months: a frightening bath with Harry, into his jammies, a little nursing and some HGTV (for ME, not for HIM; I generally follow the AAP, for goodness sake), and into the pack n play. He sleeps long enough for us to read to and tuck in Harry, pour some wine, and think that we are going to have a coupe hours to ourselves before we collapse from exhaustion. Then, out of freaking nowhere, WAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH.

And then he pretty much latches on until, oh, 6:30 the next morning.

The biting, though. Ouch. I've had to dig up a tube of Lansinoh cream I bought before Harry was born and have only used as lip balm (I figured it was safe for baby lips) because the kid is a little vampire. Which could explain the night waking.

Hmmmm... you think it might be time to remove the basinet portion of the pack n play before somebody tumbles over the edge? Yeah, me too.

In a few years, when cell phones have been proven to be the new cigarettes, pictures like this will be very irresponsible.

Doing a little off-roading

Moments after I took these pictures, he fell on his face and cried.

I love putting him in clothes he's outgrown-- he looks so big.


  1. Removing the bassinet is probably a good idea for his safety - but your back probably won't love it! And ouch on the biting! We are over the biting I think but the top teeth are causing some problems now...

    Awww He is so cute! He always looks a little affronted, though. Maybe he hates the camera????

    teething can really be difficult with teeth...Boo was 2 and a half months, when I had to start her on a bottle and at 10 months she had ten teeth...Bomma

  4. god, the biting!!! that was the beginning of the end of nursing for us. Ethan just wouldn't stop biting. ugh.

    I love the pre-fall on the face picture. He's so cute!!

  5. I was so lucky that Charlie didn't get any teeth until 15 months. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one. Jack is such a cutie! I love that you have a bedtime routine by six months. It gives me hope.
