Sleepy Head

Sunday we were at the lake for Zack's party and he didn't get a nap during the day. I gave him a bath before we left because I knew he would fall asleep in the car. We left at 5:00 and he was immediately out. We got home and put him to bed. I was debating if I should wake him up after a couple hours so he would sleep all night or just left him sleep. I decided to just let him sleep and take our chances. He woke up at 11:00 and fell right back to sleep, then he woke up again at 12:30. I thought that was it and I'd be up for at least a couple hours with him, after all he slept through dinner and had to be starving. I went in and he was sitting up in bed out of it. I told him it was still ni-night time and he still just sat there. I then asked if he'd like to lay back down. He sat there for another 5-10 seconds and then answered yeah and immediately plopped his head back down We didn't hear from him again until 7:00. I couldn't believe it. He slept for 14 hours. Now that was one heck of a party! I hope the next baby is as good of a sleeper.

When Zack was less than a year old I signed him up at Toys R Us for the birthday club. Geoffrey Giraffe now calls every year on his birthday to wish him a happy one. When we got home on his b-day there was a voicemail from Geoffrey, so I gave Zack the phone. He must have listened to the message at least 20 times. He thought it was the coolest thing.

multitasking - clipping toe nails and talking to Geoffrey Giraffe.

What a great multitasker! That is so nice ofGeoffrey the giraffe to leave a messae for him. This is the first time I've heard of ToysRUs calling your home to give kids birthday wishes (I should check it out).

Glad you guys had a nice birthday party at the lake!

I remember the pregnancy brain all too well. I once made 12 small gingerbread houses for my students and left them on the top of my car as I drove off my driveway. :-P

Multitasking...too cute!

That is a lot of sleeping, he must have been really tired and had a blast at his party!
