Babysitter cat!

Babysitter cat!

Seriously he refused to move. But they are so cute & so far nice to each other...

The plaid blanket was mine as a baby. The blue cat receiving blanket/burpcloth/drool catcher, started out under nicely folded under Jacob's head... He has grabbibng figured out... He also turns a lot in the crib.

His daddy told me that this morning, Jacob was rather twisted under his blankets... We might need to reinvent the "keep the baby warm" scenario. That and half the time, he has kicked the blankets off! (Not particularly heart warming to feel the cold baby skin after one of those episodes.)

Oh & He "never" sleeps with his hands down at his sides or under the blankets. He sleeps like a referee's touchdown gesture. So I get cold fingers regularly when he nurses. :o)

But he seems to like the blankets/quilts even when he is wearing a blanket outfit - yes, they have outfits that are blankets - Jacob has 2 of them.

Grobags, my sweet, Grobags. Or the equivalent. Henry was in his for nearly 3 years, and Emmeline is giving them a good workout the second time around. I swear by them.

I held one of our graduate's baby this morning, and I thought of you. He's a sweetie.

Love the kitty with Jacob. You know I'm such the softy for these shots. And Amy, I'm sorry but I giggled hard when I thought of the those chilly finger at B-feeding time. Sorry but really, that's damn funny!!!

Sleep sacks! I put my little guy in one when he was 6 months old and was able to buy a few sizes up - larger. Then I had to start making them - he stayed in a sleep sack until early this spring (he will be 6 in June)! Of course he could zip in and out of them himself if needed, but at least I didn't have to worry about the covers coming off in the middle of the night. He had summer weight ones and winter weight (both versions flannel lined for softness). He also only wants flannel pillowcases. Cheers!
