When Bug was born, I was always very quiet when he was sleeping. I didn't want to wake him up, and I thought that noise would do just that. I have found that Bug is typically a very light sleeper. I don't know if I caused that by always being quiet when he slept, or if that's just how he sleeps. I am finding, however, that the more comfortable Bug becomes with sleeping in his own bed, the better he sleeps. (Bug has been in his own bed for a couple months now!!! Amazing!)

Gizmo, on the other hand, has to be able to have his naps with lots and lots of noise around. I can't keep Bug quiet, so Gizmo has learned to nap through the noise. I hope that lasts.

But, there is one problem with Gizmo's naps. And that is Bug. Bug touching Gizmo's nose. Bug wrenching around Gizmo's hand. Bug kissing Gizmo. Bug roaring in Gizmo's face.

Bug roaring in Gizmo's face. Bug roaring in Gizmo's face. Bug roaring in Gizmo's face. Bug roaring in Gizmo's face.

It's so frustrating!!! I have to tell Bug to leave Gizmo alone all the time, just so the poor babe can get some sleep!

And before I know it, there is Bug, once again roaring in Gizmo's face.

one thing i was told before jeremy was born was to not change what i was doing just because he was sleeping. so when jeremy would sleep/nap i vacumed, played music, watched tv, sing, have people over what have you & payed off for me jeremy will sleep through good luck hopefully gizmo will get over the roaring in babes face

Unfortunately the image is funny. Not cool for tired Momma though. Have you tried putting Gideon on your bed and then shutting the door? With protective "don't fall off the bed" stuff of course...? That way you can still have the noise so he's used to it but not so much of the touching from Benji. :) That's what I always do. But I haven't had a boy who insists on pestering either...guess I'll find out shortly how that goes. Love you!
