On a slightly similar note, Sean seems to have caught the little cold Ryan had been fighting. So right now I'm just trying to keep him comfy and give him as much rest as possible. I hate when my boys are sick. I want everyone to be healthy for our upcoming vacation. Last night we booked a hotel for one night in Chattanooga on the drive down to Atlanta. I am very excited for this trip and all the fun we will have.

How did I end up co-sleeping with Sean? Honestly, I NEVER meant for this to happen. Ryan slept in his own bed and never once as a baby slept next to me in my bed. Part of it was that I didn't want to co-sleep, but it also is not Ryan's personality to co-sleep. I never expected to start this habit with Sean. However, as it ends up, Sean is not a very good sleeper. He's never slept for long stretches of time. As he approaches 7 months old, the longest stretch he will do is one 5 hour period. But considering he goes to bed by 8 p.m., if his 5 hours happens right away, that means by 1 a.m. we start the frequent wake-ups. Co-sleeping around here started out of desperation on my part to get a bit of sleep, and it has continued only because Sean seems to really love sleeping next to me on my bed leaning against his boppy. I do not need any lectures about the safety of this practice...I already know. As I said this is not a planned habit. I am hoping that after our vacation we can start eliminating this practice. I will admit that watching Sean sleep is a beautiful sight though.
