About the sleep, I may have spoken too soon - or even jinxed it. Last night Valerie and I were up and down and up and down and up and down again from 11:45 to 2:30 a.m. I made myself a bed on the living room floor (we moved our bedroom upstairs and I got tired of going up and down creaky stairs) and got some shut-eye until 6-ish. At that point she was throwing teddy bear and blankies out of the crib and stating "up!" in a very determined voice. But as soon as I picked her up to nurse, she fell asleep again, for another 40 minutes! I dozed off too, which was nice.

So we'll see what this evening brings. I think her 8th tooth (incoming) might have been bothering her. I put some orajel on it... but who knows, really???

Also, I'm thinking I might need to change the title of this blog (not the url, just the title). Any suggestions?

Knitting for the baby? Knitting on the peak? Purling time?

(not that I like the knitting theme, nope)

Since the blog is now really about valerie, how about the tiles be something along those lines. Would probably keep Valerie's name out of the title for safety first reasons. Here are my suggestions

- baby diaries
- babycakes chronicles
- Life and times of LOO
- Adventures in LOO raising
- Yarns of LOO (play on the word Yarn for knitting as well as for "tales")
- A Tale of LOO Yarns (play on so many things)

Maybe that will inspire you some to find the title you are searching for.

May you and Babycakes sleep deep, long and well for many nights in a row! I miss you all very very much.
