I have always been very ‘anti pacifiers’ – they have always felt like an easy option when it came to parenting and a surefire way to guarantee your child a set of croked teeth. I now take all of that back…….
Baby Jack’s sleeping habits have been somewhat ..non-existant to say the least. Sleeping in spells no longer than a coulpe of hours, none of us are getting a whole lot of sleep. In desperatino we had tried a pacifier but Jack had cosistantly spat it out with the distain it seemingly deserved.
That was until the coming of Binky…… Now the ‘Binky’ pacifier range from Walmart is not the cheapest but boasts a realisticly shaped silicon nipples that babies are just going to love. We swallowed our pride..and the cost and what do you know..BINKY IS WOKING! Jack loves it, we love it (because we get some sleep) and frankly I will trade all the bad parenting connotations for six hours of unbroken sleep any day! Forget the cheaper but unpalatable Walgreens alternatives, Binky is the only way to go!
Well yesterday the wait was over! Mommy and Daddy got their margaritas, Baby jack got his first visit to a bar and all three of us ate nachos!
Armed with loaves of bread and mosquito repellant we spent an hour feeding ducks and turtles.
Tony Stewart was at Graceland last night recording a live radio show. It was a great opportunity to get up close and personal with his car (allegedly the one he raced in Vegas a couple of weeks ago) and to let the kids get their picture taken with it. Jack managed to sleep through the entire event but this marked a big occasion as it was his first trip out in the stroller! Pictures can be found HERE!
Jack is now just over a week old but he is already starting to lose that ‘new baby’ look. He does a lot of sleeping and pooping, some occasional crying and every now and again manages to make himself go cross eyed! We are very proud!
He is waking up probably once a night; feeding at around 11, 5 and then 9 – not a bad schedule at all!
