breakin' all the rules


well, i have read all the information and i've taken the classes, but it turns out some babies just like laying on their tummies. judah sure does. she has been resting peacefully since i let her try it out. of course, i haven't moved more than about five feet from her while she's in this dangerous position, but she's doing really well! she listened well to angela c. who told her to eat, sleep, poop, repeat. she loves eating and sleeping. she is such a good baby. yesterday was a really long and trying day, but she was so good. she didn't really cry at all. she allowed nana to hold her and slept peacefully through most of the day. i think the day was harder on me than on her.

i thank God constantly for such an amazing gift! she is perfect! she is so precious. i cannot get enough of her!

"pretty darn cute" Oh she is way better than that! :) She does look pretty perfect! Way to break the rules so soon. We all do it, but this might be record timing! ;)

She is gorgeous!!! Isn't it a beautiful thing to just watch her sleep?

8 of my 9 (could be all 9 but since I didn't know Jimmy when he was a baby, I'm not sure) slept on their tummy's. It was the only way they would sleep. I guess I've always been a rule breaker :)

Brandy said...

Yes, it is true...I too, am a rule braker. Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!!!

She is looks so peaceful...what a beautiful little babe.

Ha, ha. Isn't sleeping on your tummy again wonderful. How about those legs? Did you find them? That was such a glorious feeling. Keep up the routine Judah. Doing great. :)

On the tummy with the butt up in the air ~ the cutest sleep position! YOU ARE SOOOO ADORABLE, JUDAH!

Love that dark hair! I missed it in the other pictures. I haven't had much experience with sleeping babies, but a friend of mine insisted that her 1st child has a funny, flat head shape because she forced him to sleep on his back. She let her next three children all sleep on their bellies, and they all have perfectly-shaped heads. So maybe she was right?! Judah, you are so pretty!
