baltic bead believer


 this little angel is teething. he had his first tooth pop out last month and is working on the second. now i don't know if it's because his normal temperament is so angelic or if i just forgot... but he seems to be the most sensitive to the pain of teething. he doesn't cry much & is generally in a good mood. but with this teething business, he's miserable. and worse... up all night.

while i do think the baltic amber beads are adorable.... i really didn't think they would/could make a difference. as a desperate sleep deprived act, i went out and bought some. he honestly seemed more relaxed throughout the day and was able to take 2 really good naps. where as before he would cat nap and wake up crying. the big test was the night sleep. for the last week he had been up every 2 hours. sad if he ate, sad if we held him, sad about everything. just plain uncomfortable.

so i put the beads around his ankle and put him in footed pajamas. i put him to bed at 10:30. he woke up at 6! i couldn't believe it. i couldn't remember the last time i had slept that many hours in a row. to some that sleeping pattern might not be that impressive. but after weeks/ months of interrupted sleep... i'll take 6.5 hours any day!! (i didn't go to bed right when he did..)

now with his cloth diapers and his amber beads... all i need are some dreadlocks and we will be set!
