Baby Houdini

The picture below shows how George sleeps every night. He is always wrapped in his swaddling blanket under his mobile/light projector/sound machine (listening to classical music). This is usually how we find him in the morning when he wakes up (except his mobile is off in the morning)...

...but this morning was different.

Early this morning, David and I heard his mobile turn on through the baby monitor. Since the mobile turns off automatically after 20 minutes, it was strange to hear it first thing in the morning. 

We walked in to find George unswaddled, facing the OPPOSITE direction from where he fell asleep, caressing the corduroy leg of his elephant, and kicking at the sound machine to not only turn it on, but switching through the various sounds (i.e. nature, heartbeat, classical). He was obviously entertained by the mobile and completely amused with himself.

Maybe it's time to stop swaddling our little Houdini. We'll definitely be taking the stuffed animals out of the crib. It never occurred to us that he could get within reach of them at the foot of his crib!


George is currently 3.5 months old weighing in at 16 lbs. He loves to kick and swing his arms like crazy these days.  He laughs a lot too and we've found a few ticklish spots. He's in 3-6 mo. clothes and size 3 diapers. He is changing so quickly. I will post more soon!
