today has been a long day, he has been an awesome sleeper... going 6 hour stretches some nights (the doctor said it was fine), but he has been fighting it and you can tell he is just so tired. poor guy.

Aww... poor little guy. I don't know why they fight sleep so much.

Sleeping well. Fighting sleep. Screaming in sleep. Snoring. I'm learning these are all phases and thus pass.

Oops. That was me up above.

P.S. he's adorable! They're so cute when they can fit on the forearm.

I LOVE that 1st picture of him! He looks like a perfect mix of the two of you. What a handsome little guy. He'll figure out the sleep thing. Hopefully soon:)

I wish I had like a built in court taking all my babys cute pics! You are so talented these are precious pictures!

Ah the sleep training begins. He is adorable! Just as Ksenia said they go through plenty of phases. He's just trying to teach his parents some things. I can't get over how cute he is. Keep enjoying it, they grow too fast.

haha... if my 'man'icures, you mean biting his nails, then yes. no matter how many times i try to give him clippers or a file... he insists that biting is easier.
