Baby chubb rules (see legs)
Just some pictures for your viewing pleasure...
Henry is now sleeping through the night. He's done it 3 nights in a row, so I'm assuming it is the new pattern (don't worry, I've just knocked on wood). He's down from 10 to about 5 and then if he starts crying, I go in and re-swaddle him and after 5 or 10 minutes he is back in night-night land. YES. His naps during the day are now getting a little shorter, but it's a fair tradeoff, I think.
So I've started to notice something when I go out in public, and I'm wondering if I did this to people. Almost every woman (and some men) I see looks at my stroller (which is totally covered up - I could have a bomb in there - you'd never know) then looks at me and smiles at me like I am so cute. Of course, I smile back, but it's very weird. They can't see Henry so it's not a "your baby is adorable" smile (though he is, thank you). The smile is totally for me, even though I'm just a grown up (good grief) woman in sweats and a ponytail, buying milk. I suppose I must look like such a good, loving mommy that everyone wants to award me with smiles! =) Hmm. It'd be cool if they just gave me five bucks instead. Kidding!
