Party Boy

Twice in the past month, we have been awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of Joe enthusiastically playing and laughing in his crib.

The first time, I thought he was laughing in his sleep. When it continued, I shuffled over to his room to turn on some music and lull him back to sleep. But Patrick checked the video monitor and found that Joe was sitting up, eyes wide open, and just really enjoying his toys.

Same deal last night. At 1 a.m.

It’s adorable, but exhausting!

This afternoon, his grandparents arrive from New York for a Thanksgiving visit. We are hoping to get enough turkey into Joe that he will skip the midnight parties for a while. We’ll see!
