My sweet little Boonie has officially outgrown his burritos. He has been without them for about a week and a half now. He also doesn't fall asleep with his pacifier anymore either. Oh what a big boy I have.
It all started about two weeks ago when he started sleeping like a newborn again all of the sudden. He would wake up every 2-3 hours just screaming and when I'd go in there he would be thrashing around like a wild man and have his hands wiggled out of the burrito and stuck in his face which I think frustrated him even more. So I decided to take him out the next night and see what would happen. I also thought I'd try having him fall asleep without the binkie to see if that helped. I wondered if when the binkie fell out in his sleep it was waking him up. Plus I had read that it was easier to take the binkie away before 6 months. I'd rather not have to wean him off that.
Well low and behold I now have a professional non-burrito, non-binkie, baby. He even puts himself to sleep at night. We'll hear him in there talking to his animals or the walls or his hands for about 5 minutes after we put him down, and then he just falls asleep. Am I lucky or what?!
Again though, I am sad because this is another 'big boy' moment. I loved putting him in that burrito and he looked so cute wrapped up like a little cocoon.
Congratulations Boonie. You are just growing up too fast. And another funny thing is that he is losing his hair! I look at this picture above and he has so much hair!! Right now it's funny looking because he has some REALLY long ones on top that almost reach down to his eyes... but there are only a few. Then he has his new hair growing in underneath that. It's cute, but I find little blonde Boonie hairs all over everything!! I saved some for his baby book. I've really got to stop being so nostalgic or I'm not going to be able to handle this child-rearing thing.
