This is How I Say Goodnight

Posted on: July 12, 2010

Niko’s got a new trick and he usually does it right before he falls asleep. First we go through our usual sleep time routine: bottle, diaper, a round of Edelweiss (thanks to a musical bunny that dangles from his crib), and then he lies down with his “snugglebug” (a soft little toy) and some blankets. It’s when all these steps have been completed that the new trick kicks in, literally.

He basically lifts both of his legs straight up in the air, and then slams his heels down hard. He repeats this a few times in succession and then usually falls asleep. Although sometimes we can still here him kicking away even when we’re downstairs. He’s also taken to doing this when we’re changing his diaper. Which causes some concern because for one, it makes changing his diaper more challenging (hello heels in poop), and for two he risks hitting his heels on the raised ledge at the end of his change table. So far, only the former has proven to be an actual problem.
