Arlo achieved a personal best tonight. He went from eyes wide open to falling asleep on his own in his cot. I only had to pick him up once and the going-to-sleep process took a record fifteen minutes.
I’ve long given up thinking that I might ever get a full night’s sleep, but it seems that one of my main missions of motherhood thus far is making sure Arlo gets enough sleep.
I take a lot of photos of Arlo. The Arlo folder on the computer is ever growing, sprawled across a maze of subfolders depending on his age in weeks.
