Barely a half hour after I snuggled in I heard babbling over the monitor. Uh-oh, not a good sign since happy babbles only happen after nap wake-ups. I treated it like a night time wake up but as soon as I picked him up from the pack-n-play I was losing all hope that I was actually going to get to go to bed before 11pm.

Here's a fun little video of our middle of the night playtime. Hope it gives you the giggles like it continues to give me!
