Sam's crawling!

Well, Sam's been crawling now for over a week. He started tentatively the day that we were all home sick. For the first week, he would only crawl around the room that he was placed in. It was nice and convenient, because I didn't have to worry about him crawling away from my line of sight. That all ended yesterday when he started crawling up and down the hallway, exploring his new territory. He is quite excited by his new skill.

So excited by it, that he has been on a sleep strike for the past four days. He refuses to take naps (for three days he only had one 45 minute nap from 6:30 am -6 pm), instead he wants to wander the house making sad noises. I tried everything! Yesterday, I finally got him to sleep in my arms, only to place him in the crib and have him wake up. He cried for about 3 minutes while sitting up before he collapsed from exhaustion. This is how he slept for 45 minutes:

Not too comfortable, huh?

Well, I think the strike is over as he is taking his morning nap right now. Hopefully he is getting back to himself!

It might not be comfortable but it is really freaking cute!

Penelope was on a napping strike because of her new teeth, and the only thing that saved my sanity was strapping her to my back. Mama's need babies to take naps even more than the babies need it.
