I'll eat you up!

It's a line from Where the Wild Things Are, a children's book by Maurice Sendak. Jeremiah likes to read it every now and then. He even likes the spanish version:

Next month, the movie about the book comes out. But we're not taking Jeremiah to see it; it's rated PG. It's not so much the rating that's holding us back. It's just that the previews look like they might freak our boy out. I mean, he gets a little scared watching certain episodes of the Backyardigans. So we're thinking that watching a huge movie screen with monsters on it probably isn't the best bet.

When he gets older, we'll rent it for him.

...and it was still hot.

The chupón update

Well, it's been a while since the pacifier, aka chupón has been taken away from our baby (our 16 month old baby). That first night was terrible. But the second night was better - she only cried a little while. I can't remember exactly how long since I've blocked it from my memory. But I do think I had to get up in the middle of the night to calm her.
The third night was better and by the fourth night, she was free and clear.

Tonight, now a typical night, I laid her down after our 4-B bedtime routine (bath, brush teeth, read book, bed) and she cried for maybe 4 minutes. Now she's in there cooing to herself. Eventually she'll go to sleep without me hearing another peep from her. And she usually doesn't wake anybody up in the middle of the night.

Why does it seem as soon as you get something completed, I have to start all over again? The new baby should arrive in about 10 weeks...then we start all over again. But it's worth it.
