1. Did not detest peas. In fact, ate them all. What???
2. The tips of two little bottom teeth made their appearance. Two tiny little nubbins.
3. Reached out for his mommy. Reached his little chubby arms out for his mommy. Me. Melt.
4. Slept 11 hours last night. Hear the chorus of angels?
I am so tempted to go on and on and on about this child. I truly have become one of those women. I gush and rave and pontificate about this boy, this magical child. No one could have prepared me for how I would feel. I'm waiting for the moment someone says to me, "um, would you shut about that child, people have been loving their children for centuries." But, until then...

night one with no swaddle -- Adam slept on his side for 4 hours then woke up screaming. He slept in fits of 2 hours the rest of the night.
night two with no swaddle -- The nanosecond I put his sound asleep body in the crib, he immediately flipped to his belly and started crying. After three pick ups and soothings, he went to sleep and repeated the pattern from night one.
night three -- ditto. mom cries. yells at dad. surely it's his fault.
And so on.
So I ask, what the hell? How can a baby who's used to sleeping 8+ hours a night revert to a newborn?
