Sleep Trainging Update

Well...lets see.

Lster is still not sleeping well. How is this possible. After a horrible friday night wherein he decided to cry, scream or bang his crib from 12-5:30AM, I decided to go and sleep on the couch. Last night was better, but still not great but I made him stay in there until 6AM and he probably cried off and on from 3:40 till then.

He is taking much better naps. YEAH Lster for napping. Napping is good.

Perma's Birthday

Happy Birthday.

I hope your day was filled with lots of cake and Harry paraphernalia.

Sleep Training - Day 3

Lster slept only a 1/2 hour for the first 3 naps (morn, aft, morn) and then cried for 1 hour. I got him at this point and waited until the next nap time to try and put him down again. Oh he was so sad and clung to me like I had left him forever. BUT...on the 4th nap (aft) he slept 40 min, cried for 5 minutes and went back to sleep a total of 1 1/2 hours. yippee.

Today Lster slept 2 - 50 minute naps. Still not great but a whole bunch better than before.

Sorry for the boring post but I gotta write it down somewhere.

thanks mster

If you search for poopboogers on Google, I'm the first on the list.

Word Definition and Expoloration

Word Definition by Mster

"Dragoner" - one who takes care of dragons

And Lster found his diaper today. (the diaper he was wearing) I remember the day that Mster found her diaper although she was entertained much longer than him.

And...Lster is sleep training. Slightly frustrating times in the Burrito household. With the chaos of our lives I just haven't been able to allot a time to truly train him. But with the in-laws out of town and the Burrito family flying solo for a few days, it was time. (also the fact that I've had a 5 hour stretch of sleep maybe 2-3 times since the big guy was born). So last night he finally slept through the night. 6pm to 5am with only a few squaks in the night. No real cries. Now, if only we can get him to sleep till 6am (he used to before) and he needs to master the naps. 1/2 hour naps just aren't good enough. Oh the crying. I feel so bad for him. I'm trying to remember that I did it with Mster and how it went. I wish I would have journalled the experience.

Tofu and Recalls

1. I've always been a pretty trusting person but these days I just want to dump all the toys into the trash can and give my kids paperbags and socks to play with. Erg!!!!!

2. Lster loves tofu as much as Mster did (emphasis on 'did'). We are not a vegetarian family. And those that really know us can just stop laughing. :) In fact, we don't eat tofu ourselves but I find that it is the perfect food to give a baby who's learning to eat for themselves. Its pretty bland. Its easy to pick up. Its easy to swallow and it has protein in it. Tonight I gave some to Lster for the first time and he inhaled it. Mster picked up her piece (since she HAD to have what Lster was having), felt the squishy weirdness and didn't even try it.

3. Mster is really liking the 'funder"

Mster could be your penpal

Mster got an email from one of her friends and she thinks typing letters is cool.

If you want a letter from her drop her a note by my email.

Lster is a genius

Lster can sign 3 words


and today he crawled to the bathroom (door was shut), turned around to my mom who was behind him and signed "water". His sister had just had a bath and he wanted one too.

AMAZING!!!! I love communicating with a 9 month old.

Word of the Day...Thanks Mster
