Squishy vs. A Pancake

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

What's the difference between Squishy and a pancake?

Normally, you only have to flip a pancake once.

We had to flip Squishy five times last night.

Squishy is becoming more and more mobile by the day. The minute you lay him down, he immediately rolls over to his belly, usually barfs on the floor because he most likely just ate, and then starts to use his arms to spin himself around.

Squishy can now also get his knees up under his body, so it's only a matter of time before he puts the two together. Crikey. This all means that he moves his chunky little huge self all around in his crib at night. To try to combat the little stinker, we still wrap him up in his swaddle blanket (although there is no containing the sausage links arms anymore so we don't even try). Well, this does nothing other than make us laugh when we watch him on the monitor because now he just looks like a giant inch-worm when he flips over.

Despite the fact that he can roll both ways (back to belly and belly to back), he refuses to fix himself in his crib. So he flips over onto his belly, inch-worms his way all the way to the top of his crib so his head gets smashed in the corner, and then proceeds to get his arm stuck between the slats of the crib. He then wakes up, screams, we roll him back over, he shoves his thumb in his mouth, and falls back to sleep immediately.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Times five.

I thought about putting in his crib bumper to prevent the arm getting stuck, but the fact that he moves himself and smashes his face against the side makes me not want to use it (even the breathable kind). Knowing him, he will then be just like my brother getting his hand stuck in the soccer net while being the goalie. :)

Thank goodness he at least goes back to sleep immediately every time, but sheesh.
