Whether beginning or ending, daylight saving time can always wreak havoc on your sleeping patterns, but I've never ever considered that there might come a day when gaining an hour of sleep would prove so utterly fruitless. Obviously, babies have no concept of the singular opportunity that the end of daylight saving time provides -- … Continue reading Day 253: Baby’s First Daylight Saving Time!
I noted last week that Miles has gotten a lot bigger recently, and now I know I'm not crazy, because we've had to retire his bath pad in favor of a larger tub capable of accommodating his beefy baby legs.
