Well, I know that I said we were going to wean Madeline from the swaddle. But, after several sleepless nights, we have gone back to the trusty swaddle that we have used from the first night home. Without the swaddle she would wake up almost every hour and then need her pacifier to get back to sleep. Not fun for mommy and frankly I think that Madeline was a little cranky too. So, Saturday night, we put her back in it and she slept for 9 hours straight without even a whimper. Just so you know, we use swaddles by Kiddopotomus. They are great. We have used the fleece ones and now we are using a knit one since the weather is getting warmer. The picture above is from her first night home from the hospital.

I thought syke was actually psyche as if it is some derivative of psychedelic.

I could be wrong, but then again how could it be wrong when it sounds so right.

I actually looked it up. And "syke" was to be kidding or joking. But, maybe the dictionary that I looked it up in was incorrect.

I love that you used 'syke!' that's so awesome. I remember the first time i heard that Megan Humphreys told Josh Maybrey that she like him---syke!

wow, old school huh? thanks for bringing it back.

A definite shout-out to you, Naomi, for the recommendation of this particular swaddle the other day on the phone. We bought one today and Caedmon seems to love it. And it's so easy to wrap him tight enough (with no arms escaping). We'll see how tonight goes!!!
