Sleep has always been a priority for me. I know many babies like to stay up all night and drive their mommies and daddies crazy, but I prefer to get my sleep. I have always been a good sleeper. That’s just the way I am.
In my early days, sleep took up most of my time. Being born is hard work and let’s face facts, there aren’t that many things for a newborn to do. Now that I’m a big girl, I don’t sleep quite as much. I’m much too busy these days. There are things to discover and adventures to be had.
The other day mommy and I were going over some photos and videos from my early months. Not surprising, many of them were of me sleeping. Mommy noticed something I used to do when I slept that she forgot about. It seems unbelievable that mommy would forget since it wasn’t all that long ago.
When I was little, every time I slept my mouth would move as if sucking milk. I did this frequently enough to allow mommy to get quite a bit of footage of me doing this. You can still catch me doing it on occasion but it’s now a rare thing. I am a big girl and my mouth isn’t just for milk anymore.
Mommy thinks my sleep sucking was very cute. When she watches the videos she wonders what was going on in my little head at the time. I say I must have been having sweet dreams. Mommy agrees and starts coming up with possible dream scenarios.
I find mommy’s stories interesting. I think mommy’s ideas are believable baby dreams. It took some work but we managed to put together a little video combining the footage of me sleep sucking, and mommy’s story.
The footage is a bit dark, but I was sleeping at the time and I always preferred to sleep with low lighting. All things considered I think it turned out pretty well. I hope you enjoyed watching it.
Mommy says she misses those days and the funny things I used to do. I remind mommy that although I am a big girl now, I am still a little peach and our journey together is only beginning. We have many things to look forward and many experiences to share. There are still plenty of videos waiting to be made.
