They are intriguing and a joy except when sleep is due!
I've tried the bath, book, breastfeed and I get manic splashing and squeeling in the bath, tears when drying him, then he wants to roll around on the bed, chew the book, I tried a comfort blanket he just wants to fling it around and wave it in the air, tried gentle stroking just got kicked, with singing he joins in and giggles!
It's hilarious how the more tired they get the more energy! Even rocking him on my shoulder sometimes he's reaching out for the pictures on the walls, leaning around to get something or to pull at my face, putting his head back to look at the ceiling, I may be pacing up and down and he turns to look one side to the other! He will sometimes drop off on my shoulder then shake his head or rub it into me to stay awake!
Ha yeah, I added a link to my post that you might want to check out squirmsmum. X yesterday my baby stayed awake from 11am to 8.30pm as he was having so much fun he had two 5 min naps in the car then sprung back into action.
