The wool is over his eyes

David often teases me about mixing up idiomatic phrases, hence the title. It will make more sense by the time you finish reading.

The last couple of days have been super cold here. It is funny to me that the coldest days are happening at the beginning of March, especially when I keep reading about how nice the weather is at home! Last night, we were really concerned about Joshua's warmth while he slept. We lost power at midnight, which is normal, but our house is in the 50s without it. My face was quite cold when I was bundled up in bed, so I knew Joshua's head must have been freezing.

Lesson #1: If your baby is sleeping well, and has been for several hours, then he is probably pretty comfortable.

We decided to dart into his room, put a hat on him really quickly, and then dart out.

Lesson #2: Don't mess with a sleeping baby!

You can probably see where this is going... Joshua screamed off and on for the next 45 minutes or so. I felt terrible for disturbing him, especially since the power came back shortly after he fell asleep again.

Today we put Joshua down for a nap shortly before the power came back on, so I put the same hat on him. About an hour into his nap, I heard him screaming. From time to time, he will wake up in the middle of his nap and then go back to sleep within 10 minutes. So I stood outside his door, ever the watchful mother, and listened for a minute. I have never heard that kind of cry before, so I rushed in to get him. He had pulled the wool hat down over his eyes. I snatched it off of his head and held him for awhile, and I was very thankful that he went right back to sleep. I think we will have to figure out another way to keep his head warm while he is sleeping!
