So when I ran yesterday, sorry, today early early morning, to pick up my whaling son, it turned out to be a long long process of putting him back to sleep. He is 5/12 months old. Now, I have read at multiple sites and in various books that you should let the baby cry out because you need to let them learn how to fall back to sleep on their own. Ok, I am not sure about you, but I had and continue to have a hard time in following this "cry out" method. Don't get me wrong, as a new mother, I am open to all suggestions, and I did give this method a try. Well, end result: I ended up crying out loud instead. I just couldn't see my baby cry his heart out, while I stood there like a zombie doing nothing. It was so hard. I am the old fashioned kind, and that means you need to soothe the baby, let him know you are there for him, hug him or rock him...whatever works. Just not be cold stone and hear the crying. So, how have I fared in this method. Hmm, it was trying at first, but now my babyroo knocks out in approx 1-2 minutes of rocking. And, since he is on breast milk only, he gets up about twice throughout the 11-12 hour period. Its not that hard.
Well, well, since we are talking about babies, I have to confess, I am in love love love with baby clothes. They are just so adorable...you know, clothes for tiny people. And these days big brand names have started to invest in this industry. Oh, heart warmer! I would definitely buy a Burberry Trench for my lil' man or a pair of Gucci loafers or I could simply save all that money to invest in a house instead. Guess which one I'd pick? Yup, the latter ofcourse. I am a smart shopper, and unless I see true value in purchase of a luxury item, I do not buy it. I hold back my heart, whims and fancies so that my credit card bill does not drown them. You can get there darlings, it just takes a bit practice to attain this stage :)
This does not mean I do not scour the internet for the most trendy outfits for babies. It always keeps my mind afresh of ideas when dressing my babyroo. And, I have to confess. Again. I also keep a tab on baby girl clothes too. I have two nieces and I just loooerve shopping for them. Ok, so here goes my pallet for summer.
