sleep like a baby

This week we experimented with putting Charlie to sleep sans his magic sleep suit (pictured on right for posterity's sake - man, i loved his little astronaut look).

I like to think of these moments as parenting roulette. On a particularly good day when your parenting spirits are high, you feel emboldened to make a drastic change. Often, you know these changes are coming so you decide to throw all caution to the wind and just go for it. I mean, what's the worst that can happen?! (This question, btw, should never, ever be uttered by a parent.)

Inspired by this sense of reckless abandon, we traded his sleep suit for a wearable bunting sleep sack blanket thingy - I have no idea what it's called so I'm covering all possible bases with my description.

This is exactly how Charlie felt about being less restricted:

And this is the hilarity that ensued once we put him to bed...time-lapsed for your viewing pleasure:

Have no fear. He wore himself out pretty quickly and settled down for a nice long sleep in the corner of his crib.
