The day after I wrote about his new crawling technique and the surprising way he skipped over the rolling over skill, he proved me wrong. He was sleeping on my parents’ bed when a cry from Katherine woke him up. Without opening his eyes, he arched his back, rolled over, and found himself on all fours and crying in protest as his eyes fluttered open. He has now exhibited this dangerous tendency to roll without looking several times now, and if he keeps it up he’ll be sleeping on the floor.
I may make him sleep on the floor, anyway: my parents have been taking him for shifts in the middle of the night and early in the morning, but I’m still exhausted. Last night I finally managed to count how many times he woke up between 8:30 pm and 8:30am: 6. No wonder I’m tired! So much for sleeping through the night; he’s just adding more feeding and waking sessions to his slumber as he gets older!
