My Christmas Eve gift

I've been given a cold by either my son or my husband, but that's not my Christmas Eve gift. My nose is stuffy, I have a cough and I am living on Dayquil. I'd prefer to not be sick on Christmas, but you can't control a cold.

In the midst of all this runny nose, tissues and empty Dayquil packages I got pretty cool present at 03:58 this morning. Oz is still waking for a 3-5 am bottle. I still try the diaper change first, but I haven't had any luck as of yet at just putting him back to sleep after putting a fresh nappy on. Groggy, stuffy and a little grumpy I wandered into Oz's room to change him, re-swaddle him and then take him down for his nummies. Leaning over the crib what do I see? My little man sleeping on his tummy. He'd totally broken out of his swaddle (it was around his waist), and was rustling about on his tummy. At his 4 month well baby I had to flick the young doc on her ear for missing that Oz hadn't rolled over yet and he's 5 months in 2 days (she hadn't even read his chart, I had to ask about it). So it was a great pleasure to see that in the darkness of night he's figured out how to roll over from back to tummy. I think he was rustling about because he was stuck and couldn't get off his tummy.

Regardless of why he rustled, I was given a pretty cool gift this Christmas Eve - my son rolled over. Merry Christmas to you all, be good and love one another.

I'm right there with you on the cold thing. Going on 7 days now and it sucks.


Drop me a note when you get a chance - I've been meaning to talk to you about something (nothing major).

Hope you're feeling better soon!

I'm glad to see that Oz is still doing well. How's his reflux treating him now?

Merry Christmas!
