Yeah! Isaac slept through the night last night. This is the third time in the last two weeks. Although he slept peacefully during the night without waking, I still get up two or three times to make sure he is breathing and his Amazing Miracle Blanket is still snug around him. Sleeping through the night also means that I missed the 3:30am episode of The Cosby Show (to which I have become addicted to since Isaac’s arrival). I genuinely felt a twinge of disappointment when I woke up this morning, realizing that there was no nighttime feeding and that I had missed the Cosby Show. Right now Nick at Night is showing the final season and we are very close to the last episode where Theo graduates from NYU, everyone is living in the house again, the doorbell is still broken, and general hilarity ensues. But I guess I can miss that for a baby who sleeps from 8pm until 7:30am.
Today I thought I would make a list of Isaac’s favorite things at almost 3 months old:
Favorite Blanket: His blue Miracle Blanket, without the feet tucked in (his green one shrunk in the wash and is now for emergencies only)
Favorite Toys: Farm book, Leo the Lion, and Leap Frog Activity Seat (this is a new favorite as he used to HATE it when we would put him in it. Now he bats at the activity bar and listens to “The Lion roars hello.” over and over). Oh, and he also really likes Tad (also Leap Frog), but only the nighttime light show
Favorite CD: Infant Calm by Prerecords, specifically track 4 which is the vacuum Cleaner Waltz and sometimes track 2 which is the Hair Dryer Hum. If you have an infant or about to have one—you need this CD. Once we turn it on, any fussing or crying immediately stops.
Favorite Song: Five Little Pumpkins
Favorite Juice: Gerber’s Apple Prune (we were having to take juice last week for intestinal issues. After offering several flavors, this is the only one he would take!)
Favorite time of day: A tie between getting up in the morning and bathtime at night
Favorite people: Momma and Daddy
Favorite TV program: Laguna Beach and The Cosby Show (ok, so these are my favorites right now)
Things on his Christmas list: Fisher Price See and View blocks, exersauser, and Peanut Shell
