Well, our problem ended up taking care of himself. It finally just stopped a couple of days ago. He no longer rolls onto his belly, but pretty much stays on his back and side the whole night. He's back sleeping his long 8-13 hour stretches once again! Yes, I said 13. Thank you. This past Thursday, Aug. 14, he slept from 9:55 pm until 10:45 am the next morning, almost 13 hours. Here are some pics of what we would find a couple of these mornings of this phase:
This was the first time we found him where he had discovered that he could lay on his cheek and not with his nose buried into the mattress! He looks so peaceful here! And like such a big boy!
Okay, so we were in Morganfield, KY last weekend for baby showers for our good friends, John & Jamie Burgess, who are expecting their baby girl (Audrey) Sept. 16th. So, Mason decided to try out Audrey's crib while we were there to make sure it will work for her. Hee hee! So, that explains the pink crib bedding. Thank you. (Mason actually loves pink!! He can't keep his eyes off me when I wear pink, and that's pretty often!)
So, when we put Mason to bed this night, this is what he was doing... staring at Audrey's mobile thang! Oh, he loved it!! It was the sweetest thang!! So, we thought maybe he would stay on his side the entire night if he fell asleep looking at it...
Wrong, this is how we found him at 5:22 am!!! Marc and I just stood over the crib and watched him forever, so afraid to disturb him and turn him over! Look at his little butt all perched up!!
Oh my gosh, he was sooooooo sweet-looking! It kinda looked like he was faking, though, like he knew people were watching him!
Mason, Mommy & Daddy will forever have this image sketched in their minds! We love you, little boy, no matter if you're on your back or your tummy!! You are our perfect gift from God!
