The Doggies

The other recent development in the boys' lives has been the recent addition of their doggies. Up until now, we've been nervous about putting stuffed animals in the cribs, but we figure that they should be alright with them now that the boys can roll any which way they want.

I think Levi enjoys having the company in his crib, yet he hasn't glommed onto his doggy the way Asher has. For the past three nights, Levi has started randomly screaming and crying in his sleep, and we have to work really hard to get him to way up in order to snap out of it. I'm wondering if it's nightmares or just missing having someone right there...but how weird is it that this would start, out of the blue, months after we moved the boys into separate cribs? Anyway, we're hoping that Levi's doggy is a source of comfort to him, watching over him in his sleep.

Asher, on the other hand, has fallen in love with his doggy. He has a hard time falling asleep, whether at night or for naps in his crib, without his doggy's ear clutched firmly in his little chubby fists and planted against his face. And please, what ever you do, don't try to take that doggy's ear away from Asher when he has a hold on it. It's his comfort.

Wow, I really need some photos of the boys while they're awake...I'm just so in love with how peaceful and adorable they are while asleep. Ok, I'll work on that.

Levi may be having night terrors. Ethan has the same problem. Once or twice a year he will be SCREAMING in his sleep and nothing we do will wake him up. I don't know if babies can have them or not. Usually it happens with Ethan when a change has happened in his life or overly tired. I don't if this helps at all but I thought I would share the info just in case.
