I love this photo. Toby has grown so much in three short weeks. Look at that chubby face. He likes to lie on his side, and can scramble around 90 degrees on his sleeping mat. That's a 0000 he's packing full.
Lounge-Lizard - Toby's preferred place of rest at ILH, on the lounge in the lobby. This is the only place we have been able to get hin to sleep without bodiy contact. Of course, we have to sit in the lounge with him for long periods of time so he doesn't get stolen.
Bob's fantabulous self-feeding arrangement. If you keep his hands in mittens he can't hold the bottle and knock it off the bear. This method only works supervised, and only for short periods of time, like 20 seconds, before the teat falls from his mouth. Useless, really.
The happiest cleaner in Delhi. Indian folk seem to want to wake sleeping babies by clucking loudly and pinching their cheeks.
You have been warned.
Thanks for all the comments about sleeping. Bob the magician got him off to sleep for a whole three hours, sans bodily contact. Bliss. I just cannot bear to hear him cry. His wails are not quiet and it's pretty hard to exercise controlled crying in a hotel with other guests and a baby who can tear through the walls. I don't think any parent can ignore crying when it gets to hysterical full-body, breath-holding cack cack cacks. That's our boy! We'll see a baby nurse when we get home and try to get some routine, but til then, will have to give in to Toby so we don't get booted out of here.
