A Good Night's Sleep

Yesterday, Matt went to the boat drags, so I took Gav to a friend's house. He looked so cute wearing jeans for the first time! They are still a little big, but I know he will grow into them soon.

After we left our friend's house, we went over to Matt's parent's house where Gavin got to have some quality time with his Grandma and Grandpa S. Since we were gone most of the day, Gavin never got to lay down and take a good nap. He fell asleep in my arms a few times, but that just isn't the same. Also, just before we left for Grandma and Grandpa's house, Gavin had some gas pain and began screaming. He screamed on the car ride over there and what was probably half-an-hour seemed like three hours. Any time he screams it is absolutely heartbreaking! When I finally got to Matt's parent's house, I jumped out the car to scoop him up as fast as I could. He finally calmed down after a bit and spent some time cuddling in Grandma's arms.

The combination of not getting a good nap and having gas pain for awhile made him exhausted. So I knew my sweet boy would sleep well. He slept 7 3/4 hours last night! A new record! And, now that he has been changed and fed, he is taking another nap. My poor baby was so tired!


  1. Poor little guy. When one of my girls was an infant and had gas pains, I used Mylicon Drops (available over the counter in the baby medication section) and they helped tremendously! I carried a bottle in the diaper bag and had a bottle at home. I never wanted to be without it. LOL.

    He looks nice and comfy in Grandma Patty's arms!

  2. I just got the comment from you on my blog and jumped right over to read all about your ADORABLE Gavin!!!! Brings back so many memories from a year ago for us. (Aiden's b-day is March 3rd). I wanted to offer to you my email and phone number if you are interested. My email is If you have any questions about surgery. feeding, cleft stuff in general I would love to help you out. I know for me the internet, blogs, yahoo groups and such were my lifeline during it all but I longed for someone in real life that knew what I was going through personally. I have already marked Gavin's surgery on my calendar so I can keep him and the entire family in my prayers. Please do not hesitate to contact me and if you would like my phone number I can give that to you as well. Have a great weekend.
