Thankfully we are not woken by screams of terror or bad dreams. Over the monitor each night we hear giggles, coos, chatting, and once in a while his very own baby songs. Nugget wakes up, usually between 1:30-2:30 every night and has a party in the crib! I will lay and listen to him and I can’t help but laugh at times. He is having a blast in there. He lays in there and will chatter through his limited vocabulary. One minute it will be quiet and then you hear: mama, uuupp, Papa, Daaadeee, Ho Ho, and then he starts all over again with his words.
Eventually he asks to be held and we snuggle. This is my favorite time of the
Right now the song Up On the House Top is a comfort to him. We had issues last night with our fire alarm and it really scared Nugget. Once he stopped crying he asked for “Ho Ho”. When we get in the car after I pick him up from day care he wants to hear the song ~ all of the way home. I am ready for ‘Ho Ho’ to go on vacation!
Tangent over ~ back to the late night parties. The party will last any where from one to three hours. I am so thankful for the nights when Nugget falls to sleep soon after I leave the room. Sometimes he will tease. All will be quiet in the room after I leave, and then all of a sudden the party starts again.
