Missing routine

Hunter is going through a stage that involves minimal feedings and virtually non-existent naps. If I'm lucky he'll nurse one side completely, but that has become more than I can expect most feedings. And his naps are generally 30 minutes in length, and then he wakes up tired. Sometimes I can get him back to sleep, sometimes not. But he immediately rubs his eyes. I wish he were more consistent. I'm going to have to do some reading and see if this is a normal stage for almost four months or if I just need to find a way to get him on a better schedule. He does sleep through the night great though, still.

There were two times today that I put his pacifier in, turned him sideways in my arms, and he fell right asleep. It was so cute. He is my little sweetie pie. I love him so much. It's the little things like that that make my day, and I hope I remember for the rest of my life. It'd be nice if he slept a bit more though, since it's so obvious that he's tired and needs it. And sometimes he'll randomly wake up crying, except it's not even really waking up. If I can catch it right he goes right back to sleep without his eyes even opening up. Is he having bad dreams? What could he have nightmares about?

It was funny though, during the Super Bowl today we cheered loudly after the first two touchdowns (Green Bay). He screamed bloody murder and cried so hard afterwards. He did not like the cheering at all. The joke was that he must be a Steelers fan, but it was really just so sad. He wouldn't calm down for anything. He was in the middle of eating and he suddenly started crying like someone had chopped off his foot and would not start up again until Grandma had walked him around the room a bit and he finally calmed down. And this is the kid that just doesn't do that.

But that time has come kiddos. I leave you with a cute picture I just took of Hunter sleeping with his hands behind his head.
