The Sleepiest Child of All

Johnny was born before Christmas, which means he was around for all of the holiday and family madness that occurs at the end of December. Luckily for everyone involved, Johnny inherited his father's ability to sleep anywhere and in any position. Therefore, he was passed around from person to person in his little baby burrito (see Figure 1) while remaining in deep NREM sleep. John and I refer to this deep sleep as "PTFO" . . . passed the f--- out (see Figure 2). Yes, we think it's funny to use curse words to describe our child's state of existence since he can't understand us yet. You may judge our parenting skills accordingly.

As he approaches his one-month mark, he's gotten a little more lively during the day . . . and night, much to his mother's dismay. But, since he is much more awake and alert, he spends more time doing things like tummy time (Figure 3) and enjoying the mobile on his swing (Figure 4).

Basically, our son is adorable and I take way too many pictures of him.
