Giveaway winner and a sneak peek



I had so many comments from sweet mommas in need of sleep that it actually pains me to give only ONE of these magic sleepsuits away!

Then again… I had to shell out my own dough for mine too :)



{Seriously, baby boy had a 2 1/2 hour nap in his sleepsuit yesterday and I had to WAKE HIM UP to take him to the sitter’s before work… that NEVER use to happen pre-sleepsuit. Who knows how long he could have slept?!}


I also had several comments/questions about the wearability of the suit in the warmer months and if he gets hot. The sleepsuit does have some weight to it, like a baby comforter – which is really where the whole “magic” of it comes in to play. Take a baby that loves being swaddled and remove his nice cozy cocoon away from him, you’re asking for trouble!


The short answer: no, he does not get too hot in the least.


It was still cold when he started wearing it and he was in full long sleeved, footy pajamas underneath the suit. Within a matter of days, our weather went from snow to 70/80 degrees and he now wears a onsesie only inside the suit, with or without socks. I have never seen one drop of perspiration on him when he wakes up he never acts uncomfortable. On the other hand, he sweats like crazy in his carseat, so I know he has the propensity to sweat if he’s the least bit overheated, which just confirms the fact that wearing the sleepsuit is like sleeping in “baby bear soup” ;)


Without further adieu, the winner of Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit is comment #103!

I NEED this sleep suit! I am sooo intrigued to see if this will work on my little one. He only sleeps for maybe an hour and a half at night. :o( I'm beginning to lose my mind...


I feel your pain, girl. Email me { robertslove (at) live (dot) com } the address you would like this shipped to and I hope and pray you’ll receive the answer to your sleep prayers SOON!


Lastly, I also had several comments asking about Part 2 of Houston’s birth story

God willing, it will be here next week.

I am the most shameful procrastinator OF ALL and I sincerely apologize for leaving you hanging :(



On a brighter note, this morning I uploaded THE photo album of pictures from Houston’s Birth Day on the blog’s Facebook page.

Precious pictures like these two, my favorites:



Daddy cutting the cord while our sweet angel takes his first breaths… does it get any sweeter?
