It's Just a Phase

Happy Tuesday!  When my twins were a couple of months old and very close to sleeping through the night all of a sudden one of them started waking up every morning around 4 AM.  The first time it happened we tried feeding him, changing him, rocking him, walking around the house, nothing would calm him down.  I decided to try laying in our oversized chair sideways with my legs hanging over the arm, him laying on his tummy with his head on my chest.  Within a few minutes he was sound asleep!  The next morning he woke up again, but this time sitting in the chair sideways was right after feeding and changing and once again he was asleep within minutes.  Every morning for what seemed like forever he woke up, we picked him up from his crib, and moved to the chair.  At the time it was very frustrating and we wondered how long this was going to go on. 

However now looking back, I'm so thankful that I got a picture of my husband laying with him (even the dogs joined in on this morning snuggle time) because like most things kids do, it was just a phase.  Within a couple of weeks he started sleeping through the night and the early morning cuddle was just a memory.

Now I wonder what phases, good or bad, that I don't even remember because I didn't get a picture of them.  Are your children going through any phases right now?  How about you?  My photo tip for you is to take pictures of those phases...even the unpleasant phases.

Have a great week!
