Tricks

Logan is too young to have treats for Halloween, but he was totally into the trick. He got his parents good.

You see, Logan has been scheming for weeks to turn his parents into Zombies of the worst kind. He started slowly, waking up in the middle of the night and fussing a little. Then he worked up to fussing a little more and refusing to sleep. Finally ending up not sleeping at all for two or three hours during the night and keeping his parents awake the whole time.

We tried everything. Turning on a light, having him stay up later at night, warming up his room etc. Nothing worked. He wanted us to have no sleep so that we would be Zombies by Halloween. And boy did he succeed! on October 30th, he woke up when i got home form work at 10:00 and stayed up until 2:00 in the morning. We finally gave up and let him sleep in our room so that we would get a few uncomfortable winks.

On Halloween, even though it was night of the living dead at the Team T-Lo house, we still managed to stay awake and hand candies out to the little kiddies. We even tricked Logan back by making him wear his Aviator costume while we took pictures. The picture below is Logan the Red Baron with his goggle hat. He hates that hat and tried to pull it off the entire time we were taking pictures hehehe




Halloween night was exciting enough to keep Logan up until 8:00 before he was falling asleep on the floor. So we got him ready for bed and figured he would be up to his old tricks again. But we had one last little Halloween trick up our sleeves. You see, mommy was busy sewing ties onto Logan's puffy quilt while daddy was handing out candy. We tied the quilt down in his crib. The back of Logan's head has been a sore spot in the bath, against the high chair and in his blanketless crib for awhile now. The joys of teething molars.

We shut our door and shut off all the lights and got ready for bed. by 8:30 mommy, daddy and baby were fast asleep in our beds. I woke up at 5:30 this morning when Terry's alarm went off. Logan has slept through the night for the first time in weeks! His Halloween trick was over (or at least halted for one night). He eventually woke up at 7:00. Aaaahhhhhh sweet sleep! Below is another picture of our beautiful baby without the hat. He's much happier.

That costume looks so sweet on him. Did you sew it for him? You're right, it does restore my Halloween spirit!
So you tied the quilt down so it wouldn't slip out of the crib? Or did you tie it down on top of your tyke? Either way, glad the zombies finally got some decent zzzs.

Hahah maybe we should have tied him down. We read a ton of books about raising babies because we didn't know what we were doing. They all said that you shouldn't put a blanket in the crib because babies can tangle themselves in it. So I tied the quilt down so the crib would be softer and he woulnd't hurt himself in it. :)

Love the costume, Logan is the cutest aviator I've ever seen. And great idea with the quilt. Hope that has solved the zombie problem and that everyone is getting some shut-eye.
