- One night Riley screamed her little head off while I changed her diaper in our room, and Mark very briefly lifted his head up, looked at her, and said, "loudest baby..." and went back to sleep. So helpful. And he had no memory of that in the morning.
- Since Riley sleeps in our bed, I like to keep everything I might need for her during the night close by... diapers, wipes, change of clothes, blanket, boppy pillow, burp cloths... so I keep them all somewhere on or close by the bed. Well one night Riley was spitting up while I was burping her, and in my haste to get another burp cloth, I sort of tossed the boppy pillow onto Mark's head. So I'm holding a crying baby about 6 inches away from him, and Mark has a big pillow thrown on top of his head... and doesn't budge.
- I really had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I get nervous leaving Riley laying on the bed without me while Mark was sleeping, so I nudged him and told him to not kick the baby while I was in the bathroom. He said okay, and then 2 seconds later he rolled over and pulled the covers and she almost went flying.
- This morning, Riley pooped everywhere at about 5am... all over me, on the sheets, all over her... so I woke Mark up and asked him to help me... he got up out of bed, got some warm clothes on, but then left the room and went and had a bowl of cereal... didn't even remember me asking him to help. I swear he was awake and coherent, but apparently not.
- Today Mark took a nap with Riley while I supervised. You may think I'm paranoid, but she fussed and cried for like 5 minutes straight and Mark was fast asleep. No big deal, I just stuck a pacifier in her mouth and she was fine. But then she burrowed her little face into his armpit, and got stuck face down. Sigh. Mommy to the rescue.
And so, if Mark gets so much sleep, why is it that HE needs the day time naps...? My two sleepy babies... well, one apparently sleepier than the other...
Oh yeah, Riley says hi!
